A SCARCE WW2 GREEK COUNTER INSURGENCY OPERATIONS M. GROUP TO A GUNNER RA WHO ACTING AS AN INFANTRYMAN WAS INVOLVED IN THE CHAOTIC AND BRUTAL FIGHTING IN. BETWEEN DECEMBER 1944 AND JANUARY 1945 WHERE SO MANY COMBATANTS AND CIVILIANS LOST THEIR LIVES. 1939-45 STAR; AFRICA STAR. STAR, DEFENCE AND WAR MEDALS. London Gazette 10 May 1945. In recognition of gallant and distinguished services in the field. 64th Light Anti-Aircraft Regiment, Royal Artillery was deployed to. At this time German forces had been defeated in Greece and 64. Regiment had been converted to infantry as the need for anti Aircraft units had been greatly reduced in that theatre of operations. The aim of this was so that units like the 64. Would take over the roles of guarding POWs, policing work etc, freeing up regular Infantry troops. However with the German forces being pushed out of the country, their was a political vacuum, in which Greek partisan, Communist and loyalist forces vied for power, with the British being heavily involved. As such, many of the units that had been deployed as secondary troops, ended up in the middle of a brutal couple of months of fighting. Gunner Hulmes, whos unit was based in. Would have been involved in the heavy fighting against ELAS forces and it was for his gallantry during this time that he was Awarded the Military Medal. Among other fighting, men from the 64. Regiment, along with forces from the Greek Brigade were involved in the defence of Averoff Prison when it was assaulted. From After the Battle magazine. On December 18, at dusk, ELAS scored a major success when they stormed Averoff Prison in the. The jail complex lay outside the British perimeter. ELAS planned the action in order to get their hands on two former collaborationist Prime Ministers, General Georgios Tsolakoglou (April 1941-December 1942) and Ioannis Rallis (April 1943 – October 1944), and others awaiting trial for alleged collaboration or war crimes. The prison, which held some 640 inmates, was guarded by gunners from the 64th Light. RA and about 150 men from the Greek Brigade. While one part of the 1,000 strong attacking force kept the building under a heavy barrage of small-arms fire and grenades, another set the west block of the prison alight. While the flames threatening to engulf the prisoners in their cells, the British commander had no option but to open the cells and order the inmates to rendezvous at a point outside the prison walls. In the chaos and confusion, less than half of the prisoners made it. Many others were slaughtered by the frenzied mob and several of the British soldiers were murdered as well. See the following link for a good brief summary of events in. Hulmes Award is one of some 100 awards for those involved in counter insurgency operations in. In December 1944 and January 1945; 3 of which went to Hulmes unit. During this time 1000s of combatants on both sides were killed and wounded (approximately 1300 British) and it is thought around 20,000 civilians lost their lives. As such, the recommendations for these politically sensitive awards have been closed for 75 years. Therefore it would be hoped these recommendations will be made available in a year or two. An intriguing award for gallantry for operations that have been somewhat swept under the carpet by the British Government.

A very interesting WW1 Military medal grouping, awarded to a medic in the 134th field ambulance, Royal Army Medical Corps. Charles Henrey Searle was born in Dawlish, 1878 and at a young age moved to Exeter. In 1911 he resided in 29 Stuart Road, Heavitree, Exeter with his wife and three children (two girls and a boy). Searle was a printer machinist for the nespaper”Exeter Flying Post”. Newspaper article: Western times 07/09/1917.’Military Medal for Heavltree Man Mrs. Stuart-road, Heavitree, received a letter yesterday from his commanding officer intimating that her husband, Sergt. Had been awarded the Military Medal for gallant conduct and devotion to duty. What special act was that won for Sergt. Searle this distinction was not stated, either by the O. Or the winner himself in a letter received at the same time, in which the honour was also mentioned. Searle, who was born at Dawlish, came to Exeter an early age. And for 20 years was employed machinist at the office of the late Exeter Flying Post. He left that employment March 1st to join the and three weeks later received his first stripe, the second coming seven weeks later, and the third three months after, while training on Salisbury Plain. Going across the Channel, he reverted corporal, but three months had been restored to his earlier rank, and since being awarded the Military Medal has been made staff-sergeant, an excellent record. Will be interesting recall incident which occurred three months after Sergt. With others, he proceeded a spot where there were many wounded men. One by one his companions collapsed, but Sergt. Searle stuck to his post for nine days and nights Lack rest and sleep then told its tale, and he also collapsed, and a relief party carried himthe last of the original contingentto the rear, where, happily, speedily recovered. Sgt Searle was awarded the M. M for Gallantry, mentioned in the London Gazette on October 17, 1917. Mentioned in the Edinburgh gazette 22 October, 1917. Searle most likely joined the R. C, trained at salisbury plains with a field ambulance and upon travelling overseas to France and Flanders was sent into the 39th division, being drafted into the 134th field ambulance. 134th at this time were suffering heavy casualties as a result of the battle of Messines (June, 1917) and required reinforcements. Shortly after this the 134th field ambulance were present at the battle of Pilckem Ridge and the duration of the third battle of Ypres (Passhendaele, 1917). This would have been around the same time that Searle is mentioned on the letter and subsequently recieving the M. M for gallant conduct and devotion to duty. The event Searle is mentioned in the letter to his wife is a near citation for his M. Searle would have earned the Military medal for gallant conduct at the battle of Passhendaele with the 134th field ambulance. Another member of the 134 F. A recieved a M. M for the battle of Picklem Ridge (Passendaele) for dressing and bringing in wounded. He is gazzeted at the same time as Searle was (Edinburgh Gazette 22October, 1917). A very interesting medal group, the 134th field ambulance aren’t known for recieving a lot of gallantry in France and Flanders. Medals are all correctly impressed. M – 74443 SJT C. SEARLE 134 / F. War and Victory -”74443 A. The medals are Searles full entitlement. Would be worthy of further research. Any questions please feel free to ask. The item “Scarce WW1 Military M.

This is a very interesting WW1 medal group to Pte L S Jeffrey who served at Gallipoli with the 1st battalion Royal Irish regiment and with the regiment was mentioned in despatches”for gallant and distinguished services in the field”. The soldiers are displayed with a turkish star from Gallipoli, I believe the enameled star to be original, just a fairly poor quality example. Private Lewis Jeffrey served with the Transport section of the army service corps before joining the Royal Irish regiment and being mentioned in despatches. I believe his medals will be named to him in the A. C as this was his first regiment he served with. I believe Pte Lewis S Jeffrey was from Glasgow and served in Gallipoli. I also have his brothers medal group for sale on another listing. He was Gallipoli casualty with the Army cyclist corps. His medals are contemporary framed like his brothers and both medal groups have came from the same source. Any questions please feel free to ask.

This is a scarce and interesting WW1 casualty medal group in contemporary frame to Pte Alexander Douglas Jeffrey who served in the Army Cyclist corps. The medals are frame with the soldiers death plaque and scroll. Medals have been in frame for a very long time and appear to all be correctly impressed”34 Pte A Jeffrey A Cyc Corps”. Pte Jeffrey had a very low service number of 34. I believe Alexander Jeffrey was from Glasgow and was shot in the chest and died of wounds in September 1915. This most likely took place at Gallipoli. I also have his brothers medal group for sale on another listing. He served with the Irish regiment in Gallipoli and was mentioned in despatches. His medal group also being contemporary framed. Both medal groups have both come privately from a house call. Any questions please feel free to ask.
