My great uncle Peter Rice (11554) served in the Liverpool Regiment in World War One. He was awarded the Military Medal and the date when it appeared in the London Gazette was 11th February 1919. Is there any way I can find out why the Medal was awarded? Why would it have appeared as late as February 1919 in the Gazette when the War ended in November 1918? I can find few details of his service other than the award of the Military Medal. He served in the 13KLR and 1KLR.
