British 1914-15 Star Medal Trio Awarded To Lieutenant Arthur Morton Goodall, Of The 1st Battalion Durban Light Infantry (South African Infantry). Lot includes 1914-15 Star, British War Medal, Victory Medal, photocopy of his CWGC certificate, service card, pictures & biography. Mr Goodall served with the 1st Bn. Durban Light Infantry (South African Infantry). The Goodall family are intrinsically linked to the “Lever Brothers” company, Arthur being born in “Port Sunlight”. Indeed, he appears on the war memorial for the model village. His father worked for the firm, eventually managing their interests in South Africa, hence the family emigrated there when Arthur was a boy. Arthur would return to the UK to study engineering at Manchester University, where he was known for his contribution to the university sports teams and the Officer Training Corp. He is commemorated on the University of Manchester War Memorial and Hulme Hall Memorial. The two photographs of Arthur date to around this time (showing him in rugby uniform). At the outbreak of war, he and his unit were involved in the invasion of German South-West Africa (now known as Namibia). Mr Goodall was killed in action on the 21/03/1916 during the Action of Soko River, he is buried at Moshi Cemetery in Tanzania. His full entitlement is on offer here. Name and number correctly impressed on all medals. It is recorded that Arthur died as he went to the aid of his badly wounded sergeant, whilst bandaging his wounds Arthur was hit and killed or died shortly after. However, I think the most fitting memorial to him comes from Hulme Hall/Manchester University; Arthur possessed the gift of friendship in a marked degree and was very popular in the Hall and at the University. He was a familiar figure, in cowboy costume, at the shrove Tuesday celebrations and entered into all University activities with enthusiasm. In him the Hall loses one of its stalwarts. It should also be noted, that Arthur’s brother, 2nd Lieutenant Harold Armitage Goodall R. A was killed on the Western Front in March 1918. Much of the above research (and more besides) comes from “Chairs That Stand Empty: The Men Behind the Names on the Hulme Hall First World War Memorial” by A. I thoroughly recommend the book, particularly if interested in this medal group. The 1914-15 Star (Pip) was awarded to those who served in a theatre of war between 5.8.1914 and 31.12.1915, except those who had already qualified for a 1914 Star. The Victory medal (“Wilfred”) follows a design agreed upon at Versailles in 1919. The medal is in lacquered bronze and shows a winged victory holding a palm branch. All orders are dispatched fully insured and wrapped appropriately.
