MEDAL: Searching for the family of war hero

I write in the hope that this correspondence will help to find a relation of J. Gibson, who was in receipt of a First World War medal, the 1914-1915 Star.

The details are TZ. 7838, J. Gibson, A.B. RNVR. A.B. – Able Body Seaman, RNVR – Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve.

This medal was found in 1984 at 37 Hotspur Street, Tynemouth, and is now in a display frame.

Research shows that members of the Gibson Family lived at the above address and at 38 Hotspur Street.

They appear to have lived in Tynemouth from at least 1960, and possibly before.

Should any member of the family wish to reclaim the medal please contact
