The following documents are transcripts of the Medal Index Cards (MIC) located at the UK National Archives (formerly the Public Record Office). They detail the medals awarded to CUMBERBATCHs who fought in the 'Great War'.

The Medal Index Cards for the gentlemen below are my transcriptions of these records and I have tried to make these representations a close facsimile of the original cards as possible. Therefore, I have used .pdf files as they give better control over layout and presentation. You will need an ADOBE ACROBAT reader, which is freely available at www.adobe.com.

For more images, entitlement and history of the 1914 Star, 1914-1915 Star, British War and Victory medals, please The Imperial War Museum webpages entitled British Service Medals of the First World War.

Currently medal index cards detailed in .pdf files below complete for CUMBERBATCH surnames only. Other variant spellings are yet to be researched. Where there is no .pdf file then I have included the name, rank, regiment and serial number of the soldier. Officers' serial numbers were not specified.
