And another medal ! It's beginning to look as if medals to the Bedfordshire Yeomanry are quite common. This one is the British War Medal to Private 1773 William Sargent which was on a dealer's list. William was born in Bedford in 1890, in a large family that originated from Turvey, including his brother Sidney, who also served in the BY. William went to France in January 1916 after enlisting in May 1915. His service record hasn't survived but he did, thankfully. He stayed in the Bedford area and died in 1963, aged 73. Can you provide any more information about William or the Sargent family ?
