Two friends who discovered a First World War medal in an abandoned garden shed in Rugby, Warwickshire, are hoping to trace the owner's relatives ahead of the centenary of the war.
Graham Banks, 32, and Jennifer Ette found the medal in the latter's shed while they were taking it down.
They now want to find out more about the man who the medal belonged to, E.W. Follows, of the Worcestershire Regiment.
It's almost like it's fate that it's reappeared in the year of the centenary.
Mr Banks initially thought it was only an old coin. It was only when he returned later that day that he realised the significance of the discovery.
Something I read said the way to tell the real ones is they have the name, rank and service number of the person, as well as their regiment.
This had it. It belonged to E.W. Follows, of the Worcestershire Regiment, with his service number as well. That's when I got quite excited by it.
We want to find out more about him, like where he fought, how long he was in the war for, whether it was for a month or for the whole thing, and we'd love to find a living family member who we can actually give the medal to.
