Following a request from another C&CI member I am compiling a list of Military Medals awarded to RFC/RAF other ranks. I have the listing from the Aerodrome Forum which, although it is a very good starting point, is not complete and includes some typos (including one which originates from another published source).
 
I will post the completed list in due course but, in the meantime, is there anyone who has undertaken any research in this field already ? It does seem pointless to duplicate work unnecessarily.
 
Nor surprisingly, there seem to be a number of MMs to RFC wireless operators with the artillery. Has anyone done any research in to this and/or wireless operators co-operating with Contact patrols ? I have a mention of there being only two of the latter (from 3 Squadron) during the battle of Loos in 1915, both of whom were soon wounded and invalided out.
