It's possible that others may also respond to the forwarding request in
the following message so my apologies if you receive it more than once.
However, I think it's worthy of as wide a distribution as possible.

We have in our possession a war medal belonging to the above person.
person is not a member of our family, and how it came to be in our
possession, no one knows. I have searched the Commonwealth War Graves
and have found that Charles was a private in the Queens Own ( Royal West
Kent Regiment) and that he died on the 30th November 1917. He was the
son of Charles and Sarah Burke, of Lambeth Road, London. I would like
return this medal to anyone in the extended family of Charles Burke. If
name appears in your family research, could you please contact me. I am
a member of any other area news group, apart from the Suffolk news
if any of you reading this do belong to other groups, could you pass on
e-mail message on.
