A very honourable thing you're trying to do,

Its not an official medal and was issued by the Rats of Tobruk association in 1977, so tracking them down may help.

Sorry for the delay in answering, yes the name on the medal is J. Watson wrote on the back and on the front it says tubruk siege 1941, no writing on side of medal, the medal was found in a site clearance on a demolition project on the old morton hights flats.
