My Mother was in the ATS during WW2 and I understand that all who served in that war were given a war medal, I have never seen hers so I wonder if she had one and if not will I be able to send for it?

The ATS was a territorial service, and not part of the Regular Army, so different criteria may apply

My mother told me that she didn't bother sending for her medal, perhaps your mother didn't either.
