Hi Littlehand

I can only find 4 E. Martin's listed on the Medal Roll, they are:

Ordinary Seaman E. Martin
Private E. Martin, 1st King's Dragoon Guards
Private E. Martin, 60th Rifles
Lieutenant Evelyn Charles Martin, 87th (Royal Irish) Fusiliers, Commissariat and Transport Department.

So we may have a possible match with Private E. Martin, 1st King's Dragoon Guards. More research needed.

Salute

There is one 4 year old on the 1861 census, from Kent, Ramsgate, by the name of Edward H Martin.
Give or take a year search, two other possibles,both 5 year olds, plain old Edward Martin, one from Chatham, the other from Sandwich, Kent.
