25TH APRIL 1915 FIRST DAY GALLIPOLI AUSTRALIAN WW1 MEDAL TRIO comprising: 1914-15 STAR, BRITISH WAR MEDAL & VICTORY MEDAL, all correctly impressed 62 PTE H BLAKELEY 6TH BN. ” Also present is the MEMORIAL PLAQUE correctly named to “HARRY BLAKELEY. There is also a nice little’TRIBUTE MEDAL’ issued by the City of Heidelberg, which is an inner-suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. On the side that can be seen, around the rim of the medallion, it states’FOR KING AND COUNTRY’and below;’1915 A. In the centre is the wording on a boomerang! PRESENTED TO and then engraved H. The medallion is in great condition. These types of medallions, whilst scarce now, were reasonably common to Australian units during the war. The 6th Battalion was a’famous fighting infantry battalion’. Get the unit history, it provides good context. All of these items are beautifully framed (See the photos). The medals are court-mounted for display, and there is a marvelous, large, detailed photograph measuring 38cm high by 50cm wide which is a recent print of a contemporary photograph. This print shows 11 young men who were all members of the 6th Battalion, AIF. There is a gold-coloured PLAQUE which provides details of the men. It seems that these men were pre-war members of the’Melbourne University’ Regiment. There is one officer in the group, 2nd Lt. He wears the uniform and badges of the Melbourne University Regiment. Sadly, of eleven men pictured, four were KILLED ON 25TH APRIL1915, two KILLED elsewhere during the war, with five making it home. Beautifully framed, great condition.

Post will be Tracking, sign for your end A4 envelope. 25th Australian Infantry Battalion. The 25th Battalion was raised at Enoggera in Queensland in March 1915 as part of the 7th Brigade. Although predominantly composed of men recruited in Queensland, the battalion also included a small contingent of men from Darwin. The battalion left Australia in early July, trained in Egypt during August, and by early September was manning trenches at Gallipoli. At Gallipoli the 7th Brigade reinforced the depleted New Zealand and Australian Division. The 25th Battalion, however, had a relatively quiet time because the last major Allied offensive had been launched, and turned back, in the previous month. It left the peninsular on 18 December 1915. After further training in Egypt, the 25th Battalion proceeded to France. Landing on 19 March 1916, it was the first AIF battalion to arrive there. Now fighting as part of the 2nd Division, it took part in its first major battle at Pozieres between 25 July and 7 August in the course of which it suffered 785 casualties. After a spell in a quieter sector of the front in Belgium, the 2nd Division came south in October to attack again in the Somme Valley. The 25th Battalion took part in two attacks to the east of Flers, both of which floundered in the mud. Although it acted in a supporting role at the second battle of Bullecourt, the 25th Battalion did not carry out a major offensive role again until 20 September 1917, when it was part of the 2nd Division’s first wave at the battle of Menin Road in Belgium. Victory here was followed up with the capture of Broodseinde Ridge on 4 October. The 25th reprised its role from Menin Road, in what was its last large-scale offensive action for the year. 1918 was an exhausting year for the 25th Battalion. It fought to turn back the German spring offensive in April, and then participated in battles at Morlancourt, Hamel, Amiens and along the Somme Valley as the German Army was pushed ever closer to defeat. These actions sapped the strength of the AIF, already terribly weak due to earlier casualties and lack of reinforcements. In September, the 25th was one of several battalions ordered to disband to reinforce others. Its troops mutinied, winning the Battalion a temporary reprieve. The battalion went into the line one last time on 3 October 1918 and took part in a successful attack to break through the German defences around Beaurevoir. It was disbanded nine days later.
