Originally from from Halifax, Yorkshire, Later father lived in Stoney Stanton, Leicestershire. Vincent Farrer born Leeds, Yorkshire 3rd September 1917, Mother Emily Farrer (Allinson), in 1940s her address was New Row, Boroughbridge, Yorkshire. He joined West Yorkshire Regiment 4536569 Private V Farrar before WW2 and probably out in India at the outbreak of war, at time of his capture his rank was Corporal. Of all the British regiments which served in Burma, none surely can equal the record of the West Yorkshires. Their fifteen Battle Honours are only exceeded by the nineteen of the 10th Gurkha Rifles (which fielded three battalions in the campaign), and the Honour Burma 1942-45, the dates covering all four years of the War, is shared only with the Royal Berkshires, 7th Gurkhas and 10th Gurkhas. Corporal Vincent Farrar was captured during the retreat from Burma to India March 1942. British troops ordered to surrender Singapore February 1942 – Disasterous decision. The Burma Railway, also known as the Death Railway, the SiamBurma Railway, the ThaiBurma Railway and similar names, was a 415-kilometre railway between Ban Pong, Thailand, and Thanbyuzayat, Burma, built by the Empire of Japan using Prisoners of war in 1942 / 1943 to support its forces in the Burma campaign of World War II. This railway completed the rail link between Bangkok, Thailand, and Rangoon, Burma. Thousands of mainly British POWs were brutalised, tortured, starved and died of exhaustion, disease or were killed by the Japanese. After the war many Japanese war Criminals were tried and punished for their crimes. Bridge over the River Kwai under construction by Japanese using British POWs. Lieutenant-Colonel Philip Toosey was the senior British officer at Tarmakan, where the Japanese forced the prisoners to construct a railway bridge over the River Kwai for the Burma-Siam Railway. The conditions at Tarmakan were appalling. 300 men were packed into each bamboo hut, with an allocation of 18 inches of space. Toosey later recalled: Every form of cruelty that an uncivilised mind could invent was used on the prisoners. British and Allied POWs of the Japanese getting water ration. He then joined the Royal Fusiliers 8th Battalion as Lance Corporal 144446292, sent to Palestine during 1945-48 prior to British withdrawal, resulting in division of Palestine and Israel. Also entited to GSM Palestine 1945-48 medal (copy medal roll extract supplied). During the next three years he was promoted up to Colour Sergeant. When in 1950, the Communist-backed forces of the North invaded South Korea, Britain became the second largest contributor out of 21 countries that joined UN forces in its first ever armed response. Yet at the time, nobody living in the rubble of post-war Britain seemed to have any appetite for another conflict. The Royal Fusiliers (City of London) were now a single Battalion and were part of the 28th Commonwealth brigade sent to fight in Korea August 1952 to July 1953, their most famous member being actor Michael Caine aka Private Maurice Micklewhite R. Even before the conflict, Korea, previously part of the Japanese Empire which had been divided by the 38th parallel between Communist North and Pro-Western South in 1945, was desparately poor. After three years of fierce fighting between Mao Tse-Tung’s Chinese and the North against the UN forces, it had been blown to pieces. The “Korean war” never really officially ended, only a “cease fire” that has held to this day. IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING LOCKDOWN.

Pre-War India & Palestine medal group WW2 North Africa & Burma Essex Regiment

Pre-War India & Palestine medal group WW2 North Africa & Burma Essex Regiment

Pre-War and WW2 medal group if 7 to the Essex Regiment, comprising India General Service Medal 1908, clasp North West Frontier 1930-31, General Service Medal 1918, clasp Palestine, 1939-45 Star, Africa Star, Burma Star, Defence Medal and War Medal, the first two with correctly impressed naming to. IGSM Medal Roll confirms award of medal and clasp to Pte Reeve with his unit given as 2nd Battalion, Essex Regiment and the GSM Roll, with confirmation of clasp, following his transfer to the 1st Battalion of the Essex Regiment. Whilst in Palestine, men of the 1st Battalion, Essex Regiment, were caught up in the aftermath of the Christmas Day bombing of the Jordania Cafe in Haifa for which Pte Mott, 1 Essex, was awarded the Empire Gallantry Medal which was subsequently exchanged for a George Cross. Interestingly, their numbers are not miles apart and both have the same Palestine/WW2 combination. During WW2, 1st Essex served in North Africa before the Division was moved to the Far East, participating as a part of the Chindit Force and subsequently Columns working deep into the jungles. I have found reference online to a G. REEVES sic, serving with one of the Chindit Columns, but apart from available rolls and CWGC, no other research done as yet. Medals are in NEF condition with original ribbons although a couple are a little tatty. The Stars are all first issue with small rings. Along with the group is an original, WW2 issue, bi-metal cap badge if the Essex Regiment with slider and blow holes. A nice group, worthy of further research. No reserve and realistic offers will be considered. The item “Pre-War India & Palestine medal group WW2 North Africa & Burma Essex Regiment” is in sale since Monday, October 22, 2018.
