Medal Citations

Does anyone know how or whether it is possible to access the citations for WW1 medals. I have obtained copies of the medal records from the National Archives but they don't show the reason the medal was awarded.

Margaret,

A bit late in posting a response but here goes. Whether a citation was published or not can depend on the medal awarded and whether the person was an officer or other rank. Possible sources to search are: the London Gazette; local newspapers or the regimental diaries. The regimental museum may also be able to help, or suggest other possible resources.
