I have this medal record (I blurred some of it) for Sidney Truckle:
We know that Sidney died on 15th August 1915 in Gallipoli, Canakkale, Turkey.
On this "Medal" card it states that he was "Killed in action". Yet the qualifying date is 9th July 1915.
I then looked at this Regiment or Corps when Decoration was earned document (names blurred):
I can see that it originally had the same date (9.7.15) . But then it was crossed out and changed to 7.8.15, even though the remarks state he was killed in action on 15.8.15.
I am trying to build a picture here. Did Sidney actually receive his medal, or did it never happen and it was granted him after his death? I am not sure exactly what this information is telling me.
