    My previous message is a muddled way of saying that HEAFORD and GIFFORD could look the same when transliterated into Cyrillic.

    There is no equivalent to the letter H in the Russian alphabet. An H in an English name is commonly transliterated into Cyrillic as the letter which is equivalent to the hard G in English (as in...

    I'm unclear whether this is a German born in Hamburg or a British Subject born in Hamburg.

    If the latter, British sources are likely to be more use and are certainly more easily accessible.

    It appears that HMS Odyssey was the Collingwood Hotel, Ilfracombe. That seems to have been an accounting base (not where he was stationed). They specialized in Naval Parties (NP) (ad hoc groupings...

    Perhaps you were entering too much information. Searching on simply "Vyvian Alfred TYLOR" (with quotation marks) finds him immediately.

    Don't forget this is OCR not a transcription.

    That seems to a number allocated to the Royal Fusiliers. He may have transferred to the RA. As Megan has explained, you need to apply to the MoD.

    In my experience I think it's best first to identify the person and then find out what medals he got from the relevant documents.

    Others may have a different view.
