A very history filled day so far!

A medal that was given to me by my Father, not long after my Grandfather had passed away. I’ve tried to look into it in more depth but most of the ancestry sites carry a price tag that I just can’t afford.

What I do know is that P. Carney was part of the Irish Guards during World War One and is presumably my Great Grandfather. The medal itself was awarded to soldiers for taking part in the first year of the great war.

More history! Anyway, hope you all like the photo. Have a good weekend everyone!
