help request for Cpl Jack Beasant's Military Medal

Postby thunderboltflyer » Sun Aug 26, 2012 11:40 pm

Hi all. I am trying to find out where my great grandfather was awarded his Military Medal and for what action. The information i have found so far is:
I have his medal card stating ....Corps: 1/8 Bn Worcester Regt, Regimental No: 51028, Surname: Beasant Christian name: Jack, Rank: Cpl Date of gazette: 'hard to read but looks like Ro65 ? Registered paper 68/121/856 schedule number : 250586
it has been stamped that he was awarded the military medal.
I also found him listed in the London Gazette on 23rd July 1919 9373
but i cannot find anything which indicates which battles his regiment was involved in or the circumstances for which he earned his MM.
My mother never really found out much as he never talked of his service but i as his medal is pride of place in her home, i feel it would be lovely for her to know how he came to be awarded it.
Any help guidance or information would be great
kind regards
