Ww1 Australian Gallipoli 1st Day Lander & Wounded Medal Group 400 Pte T Whitear

WW1 Australian Gallipoli 1st day lander medal trio to Private T. Whitear, 4th Battalion A. Who was most likely also a 1st day wounded casualty. 1914-15 Star, British War and Victory Medals, impressed named 400 PTE T. Rising sun collar badge. Comes with copies Australian Army service papers, copy embarkation roll & newspaper casualty list, unit diary April 1915, Passenger list 1911. Professionally glass framed and mounted display. Frame Size 54cm x 33cm. Items can be sent without frames at buyers request. Was born in Newton Abbot, Devon, England in 1888. He emigrated to New South Wales in 1911, his occupation was recorded as a miner. He enlisted on the 31/8/1914 to the 4th Battalion A. After only two months training, the battalion was among the first Australian units to be deployed overseas. Pte Whitear embarked on H. T Euripides on the 20/10/1914, arriving in Egypt 2/12/1914. After this the battalion undertook further training and took part in the defence of the Suez Canal before landing at ANZAC Cove 25th April 1915 as part of the 2nd & 3rd wave. Pte Whitear is listed on the embarkation roll as serving with E Coy, but B Coy on his casualty sheet. From there, evacuated 29/4/15 landing at Alexandria 1/5/1915 and sent to hospital at Ras El Tin. 4th Battalion casualties between 25 & noon 30th April: Officers 2 KIA 6 WIA. Other Ranks 26 KIA 89 WIA. Total 8 officers & 182 men. During the day the medical services were overwhelmed. The suffering of the wounded was pitiful; many men died on the beach, and it is estimated that hundreds more lay in the hills out of the reach of help. Most notably, there were inadequate arrangements for the critically wounded, who could not be taken back to the ships until after all the troops and stores had been landed. It was early evening before boats became available; many of the maimed and bleeding were sent off in filthy barges. No one knows for sure how many Australians died on the first day, perhaps 650. Total casualties, including wounded, must have been about 2,000. This news trickled in to the Australian newspapers. Even a month after the landing, only 350 deaths had been acknowledged. It is also said that two fell overboard and drowned. We list militaria and coins weekly. We provide quality mounted medals, badges and historical research.

WW2 Australian Army El Alamein killed in action group of 5 medals to Private F. Chaney, who served B Coy, 2/32nd Battalion. 1939-45 Star, Africa Star, with clasp 8th ARMY, Defence Medal, War Medal 1939-45, Australian Service Medal 1939-45. All named WX10881 F. CHANEY, first 2 medals pantographed style naming, the rest impressed. Medals come direct from the family. Francis Frederick Chaney was born in Perth Western Australia on 3/10/1920. 16/4/1941 he departed Fremantle and on the 3/5/41 arrived Middle East to 9th Division Postal Unit. 6/10/1942 Transferred to 2/32 Bn. 31/10/42 He was reported missing believed to be P. But on the 1/11/42 reported K. He was buried at the El Alamein box cemetery on the 2/11/41. The 2/32nd Battalion and the Battle of El Alamein. Field Marshall Montgomery, Commander of the British Eighth Army, originally planned his break out operation,’Super-charge’, for the night of 31 October-1 November 1942. However, to ensure that it was adequately planned and prepared, the attack was postponed until the night of 1-2 November. During this planning stage it was vital that the pressure remained on the enemy and the 9th Australian Division launched an ambitious attack with two brigades on the night of 31 October-1 November. The 2/32nd Battalion’s role was to capture the enemy’s position at the main road at Barrel Hill. Forming defensive flanks to the north, northwest and west, they would form a screen for the 2/48th and the 2/24th Battalions to advance. In the last stage of the attack, the 2/32nd would provide the 2/3rd Pioneer Battalion with anti-tank gun and machine-gun support. A German sniper shot at two of the battalion’s officers who were reconnoitring before the attack, killing one of the officers. Casualties increased during their advance on the railway line. Despite their increasing casualties, the Australians captured the vital bridgehead known as the’saucer’, the 1-kilometre area which included the German medical post, the Blockhouse, Barrel Hill and a crossing in the railway embankment. During the next day the Australians struggled to hold the area as together with British troops they fought a furious battle against the counter-attack by German tanks. By the evening of 1 November, the exhausted and depleted Australian units were still holding their positions at the’saucer’. We list militaria and coins weekly.
