A Birchall Medal Group from the Palestine Mandate

Flag_of_the_United_KingdomOkay, this is a small family group but interesting. The 1939-45 Victory Medal means he was enlisted in 1945 but missed being deployed to any of the war zones. The Palestine Bar on the GSM means he deployed to Palestine during the emergency there between 1945 and 1948. The medal group is named to 1445860 Gnr W.Birchall R.A. The medal roll below indicates he was attached to 66th Battery, Airborne Anti-Tank Regiment, Royal Artillery.
