Colonel Miklosy, part 5 – Riddle, two medals or one?

Both, the ranklist and the officers record (that is kept in the military archives)  regarding Miklosy state that he received the Erdely (Transylvania) medal. This is shown with the sign of an encircled E. The medal was in the estate too but to my own surprise there was this paper that states he received the military merit medal for the action in Felvidek (Southern Hungary) but he has not been awarded the corresponding medal for participation in that action in Felvidek.

So a separate medal for merit regarding that action but no medal for the participation – did he do staff prepatory work? It will be impossible to tell what is the story here I am afraid.

Here a picture from the ranklist – his foreign medals are not stated in this list but they are in his officers record.
