  • I have Richard Wills service medal from the 1st would war. It was amongst my deceased fathers belongings. I believe it was amongst his fathers belongings, My father was Owen Keith Wills, his Father was Thomas wills. Thomas was married to Margret, My father had two brothers, Gordon and Norman. Can any one tell me of the family connections to Richard? The service medal is held with great reverence to the sacrifice made by Richard and I would like to know where in my family he fits in Regards Dave Wills
