The group represents a rare piece of early Royal Australian Navy military history. Frederick Turner was one of the first men to be recruited and posted as a “Electrical Artificer”, and as such he was one of the 850 Royal Navy sailors who were seconded to the Royal Australian Navy on its formation. He was one of the original commissioning crew of the H. Sydney and one of the few R. N sailors present at the Sydney-Emden action. Further he was present at Australia’s first military action in WW1 being the capture of German New Guinea. Royal Navy 344615 &. Born 25/5/1880 in Derby. Enlisted for 12 years Portsmouth 30/10/1901. Fitter and Turner by trade but served as Electrical Artificer. He would have been one of the 1. To be trained as an Electrical Artificer and served in this role in the R. 1901-The position of’Electrical Artificers’ was created: The Royal Navy recognised the growing need for specialist electricians in the fleet, and introduced the Electrical Artificer specialisation. Three “Centres of Excellence” for the training of Engine Room Artificer Apprentices had been established at Chatham, Plymouth and Portsmouth, the latter housed in a collection of Victorian hulks in the harbour, being designated HMS Fisgard. Served between 1901- 1/3/1913, Royal Navy in the following ships and shore establishments. (Shore based training establishment) x 6 postings. Launched in 1852, being powered both by sail and steam.

Fisguard, was a shore establishment of the Royal Navy active at different periods and locations between 1848 and 1983. She was used to train artificers and engineers for the Navy. (One of six Devonshire-class armoured cruisers). Shore base, Crystal Palace/Sydenham, training Depot for Royal Navy Divisions. Arrogant-class cruiser, she became a tender to the training establishment H. 1/3/1913 Seconded to the Royal Australian Navy. From settlement in 1788, to 1859, Australia depended on units detached from the Royal Navy based in Sydney to provide Naval defence. In 1859, Australia was established as a separate British Naval Station, and until 1913, a squadron of the Royal Navy was maintained in Australian waters. At an Imperial Conference held in 1909, it was decided to deploy to Australian waters a naval unit consisting of at least a battle cruiser, three second class cruisers, six destroyers, three submarines and a number of auxiliaries. Detailed discussions were held on 19 August 1909 between representatives of the British Admiralty and the Australian Government that resulted in a decision to proceed with the establishment of an Australian Fleet Unit. The first units of this Navy, the destroyers, H. Ships Yarra and Parramatta, reached Australian waters in November 1910 and in the following year on 10 July 1911, His Majesty King George V granted the title of’Royal Australian Navy’ to the Commonwealth Naval Forces. In June 1912, a third destroyer, H. Warrego was commissioned at Sydney and in 1913 the battle cruiser, H. Australia and the light cruisers, H. Ships Melbourne and Sydney arrived in Australian waters. On the 4 October 1913, the Australian Fleet entered Sydney harbour for the first time and in October of the same year formal control of these units passed to the Commonwealth Naval Board. He served on the following Royal Australian Navy Ships and establishments. (Chief Engine Room Artificer CL II). (Chief Engine Room Artificer CL I). Sydney was a Chatham-class light cruiser. 5400 tons capable of 26 knots, an armaments of 8 x 6-inch guns, 1 x 13-pounder gun, 4 x 3-pounder guns & 2 torpedo tubes. She had a crew of 376 men. The first cruiser laid down for the R. Was Sydney which was launched in August 1912 by Lady Henderson, wife of Admiral Sir Reginald Henderson. She commissioned at Portsmouth on 26 June 1913. She departed Portsmouth on 25 July 1913 and first arrived on the Australia Station at Albany on 19 September 1913. On 4 October 1913 she formed part of the Australian Fleet Unit that ceremonially entered her namesake harbour to a rapturous welcome from tens of thousands of spectators who turned out on the shores of the harbour to welcome the arrival of their fleet. Frederick Turner was one of the original crew to commission and bring H. And in fact one of the founding members of the R. Prior to the outbreak of the war the permanent strength of the R. At that time comprised 3800 personnel, of whom some 850 were on loan from the Royal Navy. The days preceding the outbreak of war in August 1914 found Sydney in Queensland waters. On 3 August 1914 she was joined at Townsville by the destroyers H. Warrego and Yarra before proceeding north to form a unit of Admiral Patey’s Pacific Squadron. Following the outbreak of war on 4 August 1914, Sydney operated in New Guinea and Pacific waters and in the brief campaign against the German Pacific possessions during which she carried out a series of punitive patrols. Highlights during this period included the capture of Rabaul (9 to 11 September 1914) and the destruction of the Angaur Island Wireless Station on 26 September 1914. The convoys escort comprised Sydney, Melbourne, H. Minotaur and the Japanese cruiser Ibuki. The convoy sailed from Albany on 1 November 1914 and on the morning of 9 November 1914 was steaming some 50 miles east of the Cocos Islands. At about 06:20 on 9 November, wireless telegraphy operators in several transports as well as in the escorting warships received signals in an unknown code followed by a query from the Cocos Island station,’What is that code’? It was in fact the German cruiser Emden under the command of Captain Karl von Müller, ordering her collier Buresk to join her at Point Refuge to coal. Shortly afterwards, the Cocos Island telegraphists signalled’Strange warship approaching followed later by the same message prefixed by S. The international distress call. By 07:00 Sydney was doing twenty knots and at 09:15 had simultaneously sighted the island and the Emden some seven or eight miles distant. Emden opened fire at a range of 10,500 yards using the then very high elevation of thirty degrees. Her first salvo was’ranged along an extended line but every shot fell within two hundred yards of Sydney. The next salvo was on target and for the next ten minutes the Australian cruiser came under heavy, accurate fire. Fifteen hits were recorded but fortunately only five burst. It was during the opening stage of the engagement that Sydney sustained all of her casualties. Two shells from a closely-bunched salvo hit the after-control platform wounding all of the personnel closed up there, while a direct hit on the upper bridge range finder took off the operator’s leg putting the equipment out of action. Sydney’s first salvo went’far over the Emden’. The second fell short and the third scored two hits. Meanwhile, Von Müller, aware that his only chance lay in putting Sydney out of action quickly, maintained a high rate of fire, reported to be a salvo every six seconds. It was to no avail. In spite of the damage to her range-finders Sydney used her superior speed and fire power and raked the German cruiser. Her shells wrecked the enemy’s steering gear, shot away both range-finders and smashed the voice pipes, severing communications between the conning tower and the guns. Shortly afterwards Emdens forward funnel toppled overboard followed by the foremast which carried away the primary fire control station and wrecked the fire bridge. Despite the damage and the inexorable end, Von Müller continued the engagement. Half his crew was disabled until’only the artillery officer and a few unskilled chaps were still firing. Finally, with his engine room on fire and with a second funnel gone, he gave the order’to the island with every ounce you can get out of the engines. Shortly after 11:00, Emden was seen to be fast on the North Keeling Island Reef. At the conclusion of the action Sydney heading for Colombo, from where she later proceeded to Malta where she arrived on 3 December 1914. On 9 September 1916 Sydney finally left Bermuda, arriving at Devonport on 19 September before proceeding to Greenock for refit. On 31 October 1916 she was temporarily attached to the 5th Battle Squadron at Scapa Flow. On 15 November she sailed for Rosyth and on arrival joined her sister ships HMS Southampton, HMS Dublin and HMAS Melbourne as part of the 2nd Light Cruiser Squadron, attached to the 2nd Battle Squadron of which HMAS Australia was the flagship. For the remainder of the war her service was confined to North Sea patrols. On 4 May 1917, while on patrol from the Humber estuary to the mouth of the Firth, Sydney fought a running engagement with the German Zeppelin L43 until Sydney had expended all the anti-aircraft ammunition and the L43 all her bombs. Nil damage to either parties. Sydney sailed from Portsmouth on 9 April 1919 for the return passage to Australia calling at Gibaltar, Malta, Port Said, Port Suez, Aden, Colombo, Singapore, Penang, and Thursday Island before arriving in her home port of Sydney on 18 July 1919. Operating with the Fleet, mainly in home waters, she served in this role until 1929. Town class light cruiser. In 1918 a commemorative medallion was struck by the Navy to recognise Australias first naval fight. The centrepiece for this medallion consisted of a Mexican silver dollar, of which some 6429 were recovered from the wreck of Emden. The coins were mounted by the Sydney jeweller W Kerr and presented by Captain Glossop to the officers and men of the Sydney who were on board at the time of the engagement. A rare piece of Australian military history. Frederick Turner was one of the first men to be recruited and posted as a “Electrical Artificer”, and as such he was one of the 850 Royal Navy sailors who was seconded to the Royal Australian Navy on its formation.

Here we have a Fantastic WW2 Gallantry Military Medal Italy Fighting Action Gurkha Medal Group, A fantastic group of 6 loose medals, consisting of a WW2 Military medal correctly impressed to 45911 Naik Manbahadur Gurung 2/4 Ghurka Rifles, has a slight suspension repair, the other 5 medals appear to have been added and are not named, comes with a bit of research with a fantastic citation that reads thus. At 0200 hrs 13 Apr 1945 when the enemy was thought to be withdrawing from his positions in the ORTICA area, Naik Man Bahadur Gurung was ordered to take a patrol strength 1 and 4 to find out if Pt 362 was still held by the enemy. He led his section to the flank of Pt 362 and sent a pair of men on the feature to r. These men reported that there were sentries on the feature and between 40 – 50 others in the rear. By this time it was almost dawn and Naik Man Bahadur decided he could not get the information back and return to keep in touch with the enemy, before daylight. He therefore disposed his patrol in some nearby slit trenches. These proved to be between two enemy positions. Man Bahadur ordered his section to lie low till dark. At approx 1500 hrs the Italians sent a fighting patrol towards Pt 362. Naik Man Bahadur saw it and in spite of certain disclosure of his position, he waved his handkerchief as a warning to the patrol. He then directed the fire of his patrol against the enemy when then fired on him from three directions. At approx 1530 hrs an Italian Coy attack was put in on Pt 362. Naik Man Bahadur took over the Bren Gun and killed three Germans, Wounding several more, The attack was successful. Throughout the action Naik Man Bahadur displayed absolute fearlessness and dogged dertimination inspired his patrol and was without doubt largely responsible for the successful occupation of Pt 362 and subsequently ORTICA, places both strongly defended. This lovely medal group is a nice testament to many of the brave acts towards the end and during WW2 that were done by native troops in service to the Allied forces, Naik Gurungs is no exception!

Wilson Royal Air Force with some writing, the medals included and the address for Mrs J Wilson on the reverse. A pre-war photo of Arthur Wilson in suit and tie marked AK1 A Wilson RAF KIA on the reverse in pencil. Arthur Wilson was born in 1921 and he was 22 when he died in 1943. His death was registered in Shrewsbury and he is buried at Shildon Cemetery and is commemorated on St John’s Church Shildon war memorial – photos of the memorial shown above. I’m not sure on the actual action that caused his death but this could be researched. It would have been one of his first sorties due to his rank. The medals come with their original ribbons and they have been mounted on a piece of card. Worthy of more research. Please let me know if you need any additional photos or details. Please see my other listings of British and foreign Medals and Militaria. Thanks and kind regards.

World War Two Casualty Medal Group to 909137 Gunner Ronald Hubert Hall of 426 Battery, 107 (The South Notts Hussars) Regiment, Royal Horse Artillery who was killed in action during the defence of Tobruck on 4th December 1941. Gunner Hall was born in Derby and lived in West Bridgford in Nottingham. Casualty Medal Slip confirming name and the award of 4 medal. Original medal box sent to Mrs F. Hall (Florence Mabel Hall his mother). Gunner Hall was serving with the 426 battery of the 107th Regiment S. A who were an anti aircraft battery. This testimonial is from another soldier who was serving with the regiment at the same time and recalls his experiences at around the time of Gunner Hall’s death. After a spell defending the Suez Canal, the Regiment moved to be part of the Trobruk defences in April 1941. I believe the following events took place during late November and early December 1941. We tried to break out but we got hammered. The German 88s fired airburst and, I dont know, the gun I was on must have been one of the unlucky guns. We had four guns, number one, I was number two, three and four. Everything there was firing just where we were and we started off firing, all of a sudden there was an airburst and I was putting the switches on doing a level with all the bubbles when I saw Bill sat on my right. I said are you alright, he replied that hed been hit in the knee. I looked at him , it was a lot more than a hit in the knee and I got out of the seat to see what I could do and he just went out. We didnt have stretcher bearers, there was nobody there when it came to medical attention. I just dragged him out, laid him down, fetched one of the few medical blokes that were. Then the next round came up, put the switch on and put the range on, old Bill would normally have done that. Then another shell came over and I thought thats close, then I looked round to my left to the two of them that were there, they didnt move. I got up to look at them and both of them had been hit pretty bad , both of them had been killed. All the other guns more or less got away with it. The next round that came over, I was putting the range on, the switch , loading it, I was the only one left and there was no sign of anyone coming, reinforcements or anything, and another round came over and lifted me out of the seat! I went flat on my back and the next thing I knew I was moved out. I finished up in one of the field hospitals that we had but I wasnt actually wounded, only knocked unconscious. A complete and interesting group worthy of more research. Please let me know if you need any additional photos or details. Please see my other listings of British and foreign Medals and Militaria.

Second Lieutenant Keith Penicuik Ewart was born on 26 December 1892 in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. He enlisted into the 2nd Canadian Divisional Signal Company on 21 January 1915, being attested for the R. On 30 September 1916, and receiving his commission the following month. Second Lieutenant Ewart was killed in action on 4 January 1918 whilst flying a DH4; his observer, Lieutenant A. They are both buried at Niergnies Communal Cemetery, France. Westlake and Ewart both served with 27 Squadron RFC and on the morning of 4 January 1918 took off at 09.50/10.50 from the airfield. It was reported that they were then seen “gliding down from 13,000 feet south-west of Denain in combat with EA (enemy aircraft) on return from bomb run to Denain”. It’s possible that B 1542 was shot down by German ace Wilhelm Reinhard who claimed his seventh victory that day in the area. Both Ewart and Westlake were buried by the Germans at Niergnies – where they are still buried, the only two allied servicemen in the cemetery. 1914-15 Star 110 2.
