TheGenealogist adds Meritorious Service Medal Roll.

The roll of names for 29,000 individuals who were decorated with the Meritorious Service Medal (MSM) British honour in the First World War have been released by TheGenealogist.
According to the release note the medal was first awarded in 1845 to non-commissioned officers in the British Army who had a record of long service in the forces. The First World War saw it awarded to those who performed acts of non-combatant gallantry in the performance of their military duty, not necessarily while the serviceman was on active service and may have been in the saving or attempted saving of the life of an officer or an enlisted soldier.
