Hi All, hope someone can help...

Trying to trace a medal awarded to my fiances Great Grandfather, JOHN GEORGE BUDDEN. Born in 1874.

He was coastguard for 6 yrs in Ballyglass then transferred to Co Wicklow for 5 yrs.
In December 1910 he nearly lost his life saving 3 fishermen and was awarded the Trade Bronze Medal plus the Carnegie Hero Watch, these were presented to him by the King.

We beleive the medal has the name BUDDEN on it. My father in law would love to trace this medal with a view to maybe buying it back into the family.

Could anyone tell me anything about Mr Budden, hopefully we can find some info and help fill in the blanks.

Any help would be much appreciated.
