Roll of Honour I-Z

N.B. The campaign medals listed were awarded for service in overseas theatres of war. For those in the Royal Navy – other than those serving in the Royal Naval Division on the Western Front – this meant service in warships. For those in the Army, the theatre of war was generally France / Belgium but Charles Bailey also served in the Middle East and William Buxton at Gallipoli. Some records are lost so, regrettably, more men will have received medals than can be shown here.
