THIS SITE IS STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION AND MANY     

                ITEMS ARE STILL TO ADDED & UPDATED

               

  
MY NAME IS PAUL LEIGHTON 

THIS IS MY COLLECTION OF MEDALS TO THE FAMILY SURNAME LEIGHTON & FERRIGE

 FROM BOTH WARS AND BOTH SIDES OF THE FAMILY.

MY MOTHERS MAIDEN NAME WAS FERRIGE, THEY WAS ONLY 6 MEN IN WW1 WITH THE SURNAME FERRIGE AND TWO OF THE MENS MEDALS  ARE IN MY COLLECTION.

THE TWO OTHER FERRIGE'S IN MY COLLECTION BOTH SERVED IN WW2 THESE ARE ALSO INCLUDED.

THERE ARE BROTHERS, KILLED IN ACTION MEDALS & DEATH PLAQUES. AND A FAMILY GROUP THE SURNAME JONES.

MY GRANDMOTHER PATRICIA DIVORCED ERIC LEIGHTON AND REMARRIED FREDRICK JONES IN 1952 .

HE WAS A WONDERFUL MAN WHO WAS ALWAYS THERE FOR US ALL AND WILL BE ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED WITH LOVE AND AFFECTION.GRANDAD SERVED WITH THE ROYAL NAVY IN WW2 AS DID BOTH HIS BROTHERS, HIS FATHER AND HIS UNCLE BOTH SERVED IN WW1 ALL THEIR DETAILS ARE ADDED AS MY TRIBUTE TO HIM AND HIS FAMILY. IT IS AN HONOUR TO HAVE HAD THIS MAN IN MY LIFE. 

ALSO THERE ARE MANY MEDALS TO THE SURNAME LEIGHTON, WHICH I HAVE COLLECTED AND HAD DONATED TO THE COLLECTION BY FAMILY MEMBERS.

MOST OF THE RESEARCH HAS BEEN DONE BY MYSELF, SEARCHING VARIOUS WEB SITES AND SOME KIND F0RUM  MEMBERS,  I HAVE AMASTED A HUGE AMOUNT OF INFOMATION ON THE REGIMENTS, FAMILY TREES, HISTORY, PHOTOS & OTHER DETAILS WHICH IM ADDING EACH DAY SO CHECK BACK FOR UPDATES ON THE MEN FOUND HERE.

EACH MEDAL HAS BEEN MOUNTED ON A BLACK VELVET BACK GROUND AND FITTED IN STAINED OAK FRAMES OF WHICH I CUT AND MAKE MYSELF THE REGIMENTAL CAP BADGES & SHOULDER TITLES ARE ALSO ADDED, AS ARE THE MEDAL INDEX CARDS AND A BRASS NAME PLAQUE. SOME SINGLE MEDALS ARE NOW DOUBLED UP DUE TO STORAGE SPACE.

 

 

  

 BELOW ARE THE PEOPLE & THEIR MEDALS

                     IN MY COLLECTION

                                          My hope is in the future that each man

           will also have my Ancestry account linked showing each persons family tree.

 

Any help is welcome regarding this collection, I'm no expert at this type of research,       

          so if any mistakes are seen please let me know and I will alter any txt
