    Hello,
    Does anyone know if there are any records that are searchable online or in the TNA regarding the Territorial Efficiency Medal recipients?
    As I would like to see if my g grandfather who would have qualified ever received one.

    thanks

    They are available on XXX... funnily enough I'm about to start a post about the Efficiency Medal that my Uncle got.

    They were all published in Army Orders as well. (Which is where FWR got them from).

    FWR seems to get a lot of information from the London Gazette, which is available on line at no cost.

    My father's service record states that he qualified for the Efficiency Medal, Territorial and the "Date of Gazette or other Authority" was "LG 6.3.47". Although FWR list my father it seems the records are merely what they found on the London Gazette which I had found anyway. They do not list the entry from the London Gazette for the award of the Efficiency Medal.

    For interest here is the page. It looks as if only officers were listed.

    I have looked on FWR and found a possible.
    WH Johnson No.900377 gunner in RFA

    the only thing is the service number is not the same.
    He was in the territorials before WW1 and served in France during WW1 then territorials until 1926 so easily qualified for a medal.
    Is this his number in WW2 (he was in the home guard) not his WW1 number ?
    Am I able to find out any more information about this WH Johnson(900377)
    Can someone explain why in 1946 he gets a Territorial Eff. Medal when the RFA was disbanded in 1924.

    Thank you for any help.
