    's-Hertogenbosch medal.jpg Hi All. I'm currently researching my Uncle's war service. He was Lt Bertram Anthony Flack (1924-2009) and I believe he served with the 1st Bn East Lancashire Rgt in the latter half of 1944 before being wounded and losing part of his hand. He later served in the British Foreign Office rising to senior ranks. I have a photo of a medal that was in his estate which appears to refer to 's-Hertogenbosch. Can anyone tell me please about his service in WW2 and this medal?

    apply for his service records
    Get a copy of military service records
    Apply for the records of someone who's deceased
    You can apply for a copy of someone else’s service records if any of the following apply:

    • you’re their immediate next of kin, for example their spouse or parent
    • you’ve got consent from their immediate next of kin
    • you have a general research interest - you’ll only have access to limited information, unless they died more than 25 years ago

    Very little on line about this medal. It is probably an unofficial commemorative award for veterans of this campaign on the 50th Anniversary.
