Default British WWII medal naming/engraving?

Hello all,

Just a general question regarding naming of British WWII campaign stars and whether this was common practice or not. I have seen many examples of First World War medals that were stamped with the recipient's name but not so for Second World War; is that because the practice was dropped or because it only applies to certain types of medals? (i.e. if WWII campaign stars were in fact stamped in this manner were the Defence Medal & War Medal 1939-45 typically stamped on the edge as well?)

Asking in order to gather info on obtaining replacement medals for an RAF casualty.
