    When world war I happened it was known as ‘World war’.It become World War I only after World War II happened in 1939.So if Andrew’s father was awarded wit bravery medal it should contain words “For our courageous Soldiers in World War” not  “World War I “.So Smith understood that he was lying

    i guess
    how would they know there gonna be sequel to it otherwise they would have written world war and not world war 1.

    the other proof is that words were not these on medals given to recipients.
    third why would it be soldiers when it is given to just one  .why plural .
