Numbered China Medal Look up


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Just wondering if anyone on the Forum has a China roll, just checking who was awarded medal numbered 567. Any help appreciated

You need to describe which "China" medal you are talking about. Army China Campaign? USN China Relief Expedition? USMC China Relief Expedition? USMC China Service? The only one you'd likely get a hit on is Army China Campaign if the # has a prefix of "No." If your medal is the Army version, is there a "No." in front of the 567?

Sorry it is an Army China medal i believe with a No before the number. The medal is with a friend and i have'nt seen it, he believes that it was awarded to a member of the US Cavalry.

Here's the medal card (copied at the National Archives in Washington, DC) that was used by Al Gleim to compile the medal roll. It's important to note that the unit shown is the one which which the soldier was serving at the time the medal was issued. Often the unit of qualifying service was a different one.

Kurt and Adam, Thanks so much for this information. Shame he didn't have a middle name, it'll be hard to find information on him. Kerry

Sometimes it's actually easier to research someone without a middle initial. A quick check of the Army enlistment registers on Ancestry shows that Tucker was born in St. Louis in 1878. (Be aware that young soldiers sometimes added a few years to their age when they enlisted, so he actually may have been born a few years later than this date.) In 1900 he was serving in Troop M of the 6th Cavalry before ending up in the 15th Cav in 1906. For Boxer Rebellion collectors the 6th Cav is a desirable regiment and Troop M is the most desirable unit within that regiment.

 

There's another set of Army campaign medal cards in the Archives that are alphabetical by recipient last name. These cards also give the unit of qualifying service. Here's an example for another solider in Troop M.
