A TREASURE hunter is desperate to trace the relatives of a Great War veteran after finding his medal in a school playing field.
Metal detector enthusiast Tony Bibby of Stanford-Le-Hope, Essex, unearthed the precious piece - belonging to Harry Tucker of the Bedfordshire Regiment - 10 years ago in Horndon-on- the-Hill.
He has so far been unable to trace the man’s family. “With this year being the centenary, I thought it was time I had another go at locating Mr Tucker’s relatives,” Tony said.
“I would certainly want to have the medal if he were my ancestor.”
