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. Overall item size is 62cm high by 85cm wide. Impressive, scarce and a wonderful talking point and investment. I can pack it well so as it will make it to you safely. You are VERY welcometo collect!
