Edwin son of John D & Mary Sutcliffe seems the most likely (from the Electoral registers).

Kathryn Dearnley and her daughter Joanne were presented with the honour in recognition of the loss of husband and father Lance-Corporal Michael Dearnley who was killed while on an operational tour of Northern Ireland in 1977.

Lance-Corporal Dearnley was born in Marsden in December 1947 and joined the British Army in September 1969, enlisting into the Royal Army Ordnance Corps, serving in Germany.

On May 31, 1977, while on an operational tour of Northern Ireland, Lance-Cpl Dearnley was travelling in an armoured car with his unit, an Explosive Ordnance Disposal team, which had been tasked with defusing an explosive device planted by Irish republican terrorists in Londonderry.

En-route to the scene the team passed a crowd of civilians who surged into the path of the armoured car. The driver swerved to avoid causing casualties and the vehicle turned over. Lance-Cpl Dearnley died as a result.

His daughter Joanne was just six years old at the time.

Mrs Dearnley said on receiving the award: “Joanne was only six years old when her father died, but the loss is still felt by both of us just as closely now as it was over 30 years ago.

“It has been a very memorable and touching ceremony for us and we’re both very proud and honoured to receive this medal.”
