A Group to an 8th Army Private

Flag_of_the_United_KingdomThis is a pretty unassuming group to an Army Medical Corps Private 7358394 H Strow. He has the 1939-1945 Star, the North Africa Star, the Italy Star, the Defence Medal, the 1939-1945 War Medal and the Efficiency Medal (GVI) with Territorial Bar. The Efficiency Medal was awarded with 12 years of service, with war service counting for double. It appears that Strow must have stayed on in the Territorial Army after the conclusion of hostilities in 1945. The RAMC was the last Corps to demob so this guy would not have got out until some time in 1946.

Again, pretty boring but these WW2 groups are so often anonymous so when you get one you try to make sure it has a GSM, EM or LSGC on it so you have the owners name and number.
