De­serv­ing of my medals

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

YOUR ar­ti­cle on the Clan­don fire (‘Fight fire with fire’, March 8) re­minded me of the medal room of the Sur­rey In­fantry Mu­seum (Let­ters, March 22), ev­ery sur­face cov­ered in medal groups. I be­lieve that this room was com­pletely de­stroyed and that the ex­am­ples I hold might be unique. They were awarded to my un­cle, Guy Ol­liver, and in­clude an MC. Each cam­paign medal is in­scribed with his rank at the time from Lt through to Lt Col in 1918 (aged 26) and, when a new mu­seum is opened, I will pre­sent them to it. Orme Ol­liver, Buck­ing­hamshire
