    I have finished typing up my recent research project on the Recce Corps. It is a list of men who were awarded the Efficiency Medal (Territorial).

    I have now over 1300 names (and service numbers) in my publication. In numerous cases I have included dates of birth, honours&awards and full names.

    Well done on the new look website :smile:

    Just to be a nit picker...and appreciating that the above is for illustrative purposes, that Efficiency Medal (Territorial) is the original 1930 George V 'Robes' issue (in issue 1930-36) - so to find it with WW2 service medals is rather unusual. This is the version - George VI pre-1947 - more usually found with WW2 groups.

    My uncle Harald H Jensen joined the TA Armoured Corps in 1923 and remained in service until after the war. That should explain. :)

    Awarded for

    Granted for a minimum of 12 years service in the Territorial Force with war service counting double.
