Thank you very much for your help and patience it just saves so much extra work! Please use the zoom option on the photos as this forms an integral part of the description. This extremely rare medal was awarded to A. To have a 1914 star named to an Australian Unit is such a rare find. From my research there are only around 233, 1914 stars actually named to an Australian Unit. Although not Australian, this is one of only 208 ever issued. A really rare medal that deserves to be in a museum. It also makes it rarer than even the rare Gallantry awards. I have done some research and he was an Ambulance Driver in the Australian Ambulance Corps. The Australian Voluntary Hospital was a military hospital staffed by Australian expatriates in England that served on the Western Front between 1914 and 1916. For much of this time it was the only Australian presence on the Western Front. Later transferred to the Royal Air Force (RAF) 01/04/1918. I have added some information about the hospital below. When the First World War. Broke out in August 1914, Lady (Rachel) Dudley, the wife of the former Governor-General of Australia. Decided to create a hospital from Australian doctors and nurses who were in the United Kingdom. There were relatively large numbers of these; while doctors and nurses could be trained in Australia, advanced qualifications still required a trip overseas. Lady Dudley discussed her proposal with King George V. And then with the Secretary of State for War. And the British Army’s Director General Army Medical Services. Who authorised the hospital. The hospital was formally offered to the British government by the Australian High Commissioner to the United Kingdom. On 15 August 1914. Volunteers responded to advertisements that Lady Dudley placed in English newspapers on 17 August 1914. Women doctors were not accepted, but women nurses were welcomed. The Australian Voluntary Hospital was commanded by Lieutenant Colonel William L’Estrange Eames. An officer in the Australian Army Medical Corps. Who had served in the Second Boer War. And was holidaying in England with his family at the time. He was unable to join the Australian Imperial Force. (AIF), which was not accepting enlistments outside of Australia. He was granted the temporary rank of lieutenant colonel. In the Royal Army Medical Corps. Ida Greaves, from Royal Newcastle Hospital. The hospital soon reached a strength of 120 staff, of whom 36 were nurses. The Australian Voluntary Hospital assembled its personnel and equipment at a camp established on the grounds of the Ranelagh Club. Which had been loaned for the purpose. It departed for France on 29 August 1914 on Lord Dunraven. S yacht “Greta”, which had been accepted by the Admiralty. As a transport for medical units. And moved to Le Havre. Owing to the German advance, the hospital was evacuated to St Nazaire. On 2 September, and reopened there 5 September. The 100-bed hospital was set up in a park under canvas, with a school and house close by rented for various facilities. It began receiving casualties from the retreat from Mons. On 26 October 1914, the Australian Voluntary Hospital moved to Wimereux. Where it established a 200-bed hospital. The hospital was well equipped, with motor ambulances donated by organisations in Australia, a pathology laboratory and the only X-ray unit in the area. A day after it opened on 29 October, it began receiving patients from the First Battle of Ypres. Much of the unit’s tents which accommodated the male personnel of the hospital were lost in a blizzard on 11 November 1914, and the men moved to the Golf club house of the Hôtel du Golf et Cosmopolite in Wimereux, which was eventually leased by the hospital, and became its officers’ mess. For a time, the Australian Voluntary Hospital was the only Australian presence on the Western Front. But in April 1916, Australian Army units began arriving from the Middle East in large numbers. The Australian Voluntary Hospital’s site in Wimereux was taken over by No. 3 Australian General Hospital, AIF in June 1916. The Australian Voluntary Hospital was then absorbed into the British Army. With Eames remaining in command. By 1 May 1919, the hospital had treated 73,868 patients. This medal would be a very rare addition to anyones collection of Nursing, Australian, Anzac, Hospital, Rarity medals of World War One. PLEASE SEE MY OTHER AUCTIONS.

Here’ s a lovely decoration group to an Australian soldier serving in the Australian Imperial forces (AIF) comprising a trio of medals. This is his full entitlement (no 1914-15 Star entitlement: enlisted in 1916) comprising Military Medal (MM) British War Medal (BWM) and Victory Medal (VM) all correctly impressed as follows. Military Medal:’4542 Pte V. BWM & VM to’4542 PTE. Medals are court mounted and in EF condition. The medals are accompanied by a research article for a local historical society in Victoria Australia, the Greensborough Historical Society (a suburb of Mbourne, Victoria). The article was researched and written by. Val Wilson who was apparently Splatt’s grand-niece (see the photos). The article has some nice pictures of Splatt in uniform and post war with wife. More research could be done, his military file is available online. Splatt was born in Greensborough on 7th February, 1893. He enlisted in January 1916 with a group of mates. They all became part of the 11th reinforcements of the 22nd Battalion, AIF. In August-September 1918, the Battalion helped capture Mont St. Quentin, and then took part in the last fighting by the AIF on the Western Front at Montbrehain in October 1918. Splatt took part in the battles of 1916, 1917 and 1918, being wounded in both 1917 and 1918, and was awarded the Military Medal (MM) in June 1918, for actions at Ville-sur-Ancre, as follows. For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty during the attack on Ville-sur-Ancre on the morning of the 9th inst. This man was acting as company runner and though wounded whilst advancing onto the enemy position, he remained on duty and refused to go to the R. He rendered invaluable assistance to his company commander in maintaining communication with the Platoon in the advanced posts, passing many times across the most exposed positions under severe M. He continued to carry messages and rendered splendid service right through the operation. He lived in Greensborough, then Oakleigh for the rest of his life. He died in 1967 aged 74 years. It’s a nice lot with a good citation. See my very good feedback. Items located in Melbourne, Australia.

Frame Size 54cm x 33cm. Items can be sent without frames at buyers request. Was born in Newton Abbot, Devon, England in 1888. He emigrated to New South Wales in 1911, his occupation was recorded as a miner. He enlisted on the 31/8/1914 to the 4th Battalion A. After only two months training, the battalion was among the first Australian units to be deployed overseas. Pte Whitear embarked on H. T Euripides on the 20/10/1914, arriving in Egypt 2/12/1914. After this the battalion undertook further training and took part in the defence of the Suez Canal before landing at ANZAC Cove 25th April 1915 as part of the 2nd & 3rd wave. Pte Whitear is listed on the embarkation roll as serving with E Coy, but B Coy on his casualty sheet. From there, evacuated 29/4/15 landing at Alexandria 1/5/1915 and sent to hospital at Ras El Tin. 4th Battalion casualties between 25 & noon 30th April: Officers 2 KIA 6 WIA. Other Ranks 26 KIA 89 WIA. Total 8 officers & 182 men. During the day the medical services were overwhelmed. The suffering of the wounded was pitiful; many men died on the beach, and it is estimated that hundreds more lay in the hills out of the reach of help. Most notably, there were inadequate arrangements for the critically wounded, who could not be taken back to the ships until after all the troops and stores had been landed. It was early evening before boats became available; many of the maimed and bleeding were sent off in filthy barges. No one knows for sure how many Australians died on the first day, perhaps 650. Total casualties, including wounded, must have been about 2,000. This news trickled in to the Australian newspapers. Even a month after the landing, only 350 deaths had been acknowledged. It is also said that two fell overboard and drowned. We list militaria and coins weekly. We provide quality mounted medals, badges and historical research.
