War Medal found in a field in Pittenweem

Alexander Whyte, a 50-year-old detectorists from St Monans found   a local person’s warmedal.

Mr Alexander Whyte found the medal with a metal detector near to where the former Pittenweem Railway Station would have been. He thinks that the medal may date back to either World War I or II.

The medal is inscribed with ‘The Britsh Red Cross Service’ and the letters which appear to spell ‘galed’ – assumed to be the recipient’s surname, or part of it. It’s however unclear what the medal is for, as the British Red Cross doesn’t keep a full record.

Mr  Whyte  would like to return the found medal to its owner and is asking anyone who can help to contact him.
