Dear Ministry of Defence,

JOHN ISAAC JAMES AXWORTHY 217485 (born- 29th October 1884)
HENRY JOHN FRAMPTON K60710 (born- 14th June 1904)

I am fully aware that a fee for this type of request to the Directorate of Naval Personnel is
£30, however the service records of the have been released to the National Archives and are currently available at the National Archives free of charge, or via the internet ancestry.co.uk. Under these circumstances can a copy of the Medal Cards be made available without the £30 charge?
