I’m not sure if this person exists or if it’s fake?? Looking further, the staples on the page look rusted as does the paper looks genuinely worn with age... Also if this is genuine, I’d like to think I could get this back to a family member. Wether or not , the person lost it or a family member sold it . Who knows. I hate to see things like this out there.

    It looks genuine and the name rings bells. There was a Lt Higson who was Adjutant at RMB Eastney in the 1960s, affectionately known as Hig the Pig! I doubt very much if he's around nowadays, but you could try the RMA at this address: RM Corps Secretariat, Building 32, HMS EXCELLENT, Whale Island, Portsmouth, PO2 8ER.

    I agree. Sadly, not everyone shares the sentiment. I once successfully attempted to reunite a family with a couple of Great War campaign medals awarded to a long deceased relative. The family basically thanked me but said they didn't need clutter.:(
