The Imperial Service Medal is not one that usually comes my way so it is nice to have something out of the ordinary to do some research on. This particular medal was awarded to James Sydney Gibson for his service as a Signalman with the NSW Tramways. The only information about the award being made to James that I could find was in the London Gazette and on the itsanhonour web page.
I've recently tracked down James' grandson and I'll return the medal to him in the near future.
The returned medal tally is now 1076.
