Military Medal of John MACINNES sought by family

British-FlagThe family of John MacINNES are on a mission.  To locate the missing Military Medal and accompanying First World War trio which may have been sold by a previous generation when hard times fell upon them.

The son of John MacINNES lived in the London region until he died. Unfortunately once his estate was assessed, his father’s war service medals from the Great War could not be located.  Upon reflection, it appears the medals may have been sold for one reason or another.

The Military Medal, 1914 Star, British War Medal and Victory Medal, similar to that awarded to John MacINNES. His descendants are desperately seeing these missing medals and are willing to compensate whoever may have these awards in their collection.

The descendants of John MacINNES are desperate to track the missing medals down and there is a reward for the location of the awards. The medals were last seen in a frame.   The Military Medal should be accompanied by The 1914 Star, British War Medal and The Victory Medal.  All four medals including the Military Medal should have their Grandfather’s name impressed upon them, which was the custom for all British Commonwealth medals for service during World War One.

The medals are incredibly important to the descendants of John MacINNES as he was the only one of his brothers to return from The Great War. He was part of the 6th Battalion of The Cameron Highlanders.  One of his grandchildren has contacted Medals Gone Missing and implores anybody to contact him if they have any knowledge of the whereabouts of the missing medals.   To reinforce the assertion made by the family of John MacINNES,  there is a reward for their return and compensation will be negotiated.

It is hoped the medals can be returned to their father before he passes as he is very ill. The family of John MacINNES wish to thank in advance, anybody who can assist.  Any lead is helpful.
