An original World War 1 medal trio comprising 1914/15 Star, British War Medal and Victory Medal. The medals are named as follows. Edge bruising, good fine or better. Also mounted on card with photocopy of the relevant date extract from the Regimental History and original Memorial Scroll Pte: Thomas James New – S. Thomas James New was born in Machen, Monmouthshire. He served during the Great War with the 2nd Battalion, South Wales Borderers in the French theatre of war from 4 December 1915. New was killed in action on the Western Front, 19 May 1917. On this date the Battalion were to win a Victoria Cross as a result of Sergeant Albert Whites bravery in action at Monchy-le-Preux. On May 14th it was back in the Monchy defences, C Company in the front line in Snaffle Trench along with the K. The others being in support in Orchard and East Trenches. The trenches were in bad condition and needed unlimited work, being full of rubbish, lacking proper fire-steps, waterlogged in places, too shallow in others, none too sanitary and unprotected by wire. Much good work was put in, but this tour of duty was made memorable by the great gallantry of one of D Company on May 19th when D was assisting the Border Regiment and the Inniskillings in an attack. D, who were on the left of the Borders, had as objective the portion of Devils Trench just astride of Bit Lane. To protect Ds left a rifle grenade section was to halt near the Northern end of a disused and waterlogged trench, half-way across No Mans Land, and give covering fire, while directly Devils Trench was reached bombers were to work Northward along it and so cover the erection of a strong point. A and B were to move up into Snaffle and Shrapnel Trenches when D went forward, A providing a carrying party to take wire, bombs and other supplies across to D. Directly the British barrage started German machine guns opened from behind some wire on our left of Bit Lane, and despite the barrage they maintained a destructive fire. Men fell fast, especially as they neared the waterlogged Arrow Trench. Captain Davies led the advance with the utmost courage, running forward well ahead to give the right direction. He was well backed up by Second Lieutenant V. Jones, but they were both shot down. Sergeant [Albert] White, seeing that all depended on putting these machine guns out of action, promptly made for the nearest one which seemed to be doing most of the damage. Followed by Corporal Nowel he dashed at the party covering it, shot three and bayoneted a fourth, and was within a few yards of the gun when he caught its full discharge and went down riddled with bullets. His self-sacrifice, subsequently recognised by a posthumous V. Diverted the fire from the other attackers for a moment, but even so it was impossible for them to reach their objective. The attack came to a standstill, the survivors sheltering in shell holes until darkness let them crawl back. Four officers and 112 men had gone over the top; only 61 got back, nearly half of whom were wounded. Private New has no known grave and is commemorated on the Arras Memorial, Pas de Calais, France.

An original World War 1 Military Medal (MM), British War Medal and Victory Medal with lengths of original ribbon, named correctly to. MM – 14248 Sjt: W. BWM and Victory – G. The 20th Battalion was also known as the 20th (Shoreditch) Battalion. Surname on both BWM and Victory originally spelt’Reale’ with the final letter on both officially erased, nearly extremely fine. MM London Gazette 6 August 1918. Real attested for the Middlesex Regiment at Stoke Newington and served with the 20th (Shoreditch) Battalion during the Great War on the Western Front. He is referred to in the unit war diary under a page headed “Military Medals” at the end of March 1918 stating the MM was awarded for gallantry and devotion on the 21st – 26th March 1918. This period is known as the’Spring Offensive’ and was the last German push to win the war and in places the allied forces were pushed back to positions behind their 1915 and 1916 starting points before the advance stalled. As the advance caused several new salients the German line became too long to hold with the number of troops they had available. There are numerous pages devoted to the actions of late March in the war diary. During this period the unit were stationed at St. Leger, to the north of Bapaume and south east of Arras. It makes grim reading but it does appear that the 20th did not give up much ground, even though villages on their flanks were being taken by the enemy. Also awarded the MM during this period were three others, two of whom are reported as missing on the 9th April. Two of the three Officers decorated in this period were taken PoW on the 9th. The war diary suggests Sjt. Real was wounded on the 9th April 1918. Upon coming back into the line following the Offensive, the 20th found themselves in the hamlet of Fleurbaix, south west of Armentieres. The unit went into the front line on the night of the 5th/6th April, relieving the 12th Suffolks. A raid planned on the German lines commenced on the night of the 8th/9th April and was hit with a furious counter-attack from the Germans, following an SOS signal going up. The Battalion HQ was surrounded and outposts attacked from the rear. The CO and part of the HQ personnel managed to escape and set up a defensive line in a trench called City Road. A further retreat occurred in response to the German advance which was finally halted at Shaftesbury Avenue trench where the 20th met the 13th Yorks Regt. The following day the unit withdrew through Armentieres. The item “Original WW1 Spring Offensive Military Medal (MM) and Pair, Middlesex R, Wounded” is in sale since Thursday, August 27, 2020.
