War hero’s medal back home after 90 years

A FIRST World War medal belonging to the brother of a fallen soldier has been discovered in soil after more than 90 years.
The medal belonged to Robert Dodds whose brother William was gunned down in front of him in 1916. Both men were awarded the medals at the end of the conflict.

But Robert’s precious Victory Medal went missing soon after his return, leaving him only with his dead brother’s posthumously-awarded Star Medal. for more click here
