    Hello my name is Stephen William Birchall, while researching my late Grandfathers war history we have come across this site and the information that you have William Birchall’s (34582) War Medals and would like to know how you came by them, did you purchase them or is there a family connection?
    Look forward to hearing from you,
    Stephen Birchall
