Just as the Rosetta stone finally enabled the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs to be deciphered, Howard's pioneering work in Chapter 3 now provides today's researcher with the missing key to the Medal Index Cards. His discoveries significantly advance our understanding of the wide range of obscure notes and abbreviations found on Medal Index Cards, as well as the significance of the different coloured inks used. In Chapter 4 Howard reveals how the Schedule Numbers found on the MM Cards, link to the individual award of the decoration. Furthermore, there are detailed notes on the Gazettes for the DSO, MC, DCM and MM which link the London Gazette dates to particular battles and actions. Howard's ground breaking work now throws light on why, where and when the MM in particular was awarded 'For Bravery in The Field' and is a major step forward in our appreciation of this previously hard to research medal.
