Military Medals

Don't know if anyone out there can help, but among my grandfather's possessions - which have been passed on to me - were a Military Medal (to go along with his three campaign medals) and a letter of commendation dated 3/1/18.
Unfortunately, the letter is made out in the name of Lance Cpl W French of the 1st Bn The Rifle Brigade.
His Army number was 3582, while my grandfather, Cpl Walter Morgan, from the Royal Warwickshire Regt, had the Army number 8352.
The same numbers but in a different order as you will see.
There are two reasons I am writing his.
I would like to get the letter of commendation to his grandchildren if possible. They might not know they had a hero in the family and probably don't know why he won the MM.
I would like to find out why my grandfather was awarded his MM. We have a story passed down through the family, but I would like to discover the real reason he won the medal.
If you don't want to reply on this site, please email me at ******************* (Sorry, email address removed, as per site policy).
Many thanks,
Lance Morgan
