1948 total release, discharge certificate from British army after WW2

1948 discharge certificate from British army after WW2.

Note that although the war ended in 1945, the demob some time afterwards was interim to the Territorial Reserves or something similar. Discharge was only final in 1948.

The certificate mentions a war medal. There is more about it elsewhere on the website.
