BRITISH WAR AND VICTORY MEDALS LIEUT. Was attached to the 5th Divisional Pack Transport Troop for just over a week between 22nd September 1917 and 1st. Within days he would be Awarded MM for Gallantry supplying the front line around Glencourse Wood. At the start of the 5th. Divisions attack on Polygon Wood. London Gazette 12 December 1917. The original recommendation states. On two occasions Sergeant Court displayed courage and resource on convoy duty in the vicinity of Hooge and Glencourse Wood in rallying men and keeping convoy intact under shell fire at night on 25th and 26th September 1917. A 24 year old Labourer from Bingara enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force on 8th January 1915. March 1915, Court joined the 12th Light Horse Regiment, at. Which was then forming and was assigned to B troop. On completion of forming the Regiment embarked for. In two groups, the first on 11th June 1915 aboard HMAT A29 Suevic including. During the voyage to. The part of the 12th Light Horse Regiment travelling on the HMAT A29. And landed on 12th July 1916 to bolster the defences of the British garrison which was under pressure from Yemeni tribesmen who were threatening an attack. By 18th July no attack had occurred and the threat diminished allowing the Regiment re-embarked to. Prior to landing on Gallipoli, the 3 Squadrons of the 12. Light Horse were attached to other Light Horse Regiments already serving on the Peninsular. B Squadron became D Squadron of the 7th Light Horse Regiment, serving with them at Gallipoli from 29. During their time at Gallipoli, the 7. Light Horse were deployed on on the far right of the front line, in the southern regions of Anzac. November, his departure having been delayed so he could serve 14 day No2 Field Punishment for gambling! Court remaining with the 7. Light Horse in Gallipoli until they were evacuated on 20th December 1915. Transferring back to the 12. Light Horse when it reformed in. February 1916, he was promoted Corporal the next day. Court would continue to serve with the Light Horse, the Regiment moving to the. Taking part in its defence. June 1916 Court was admitted to hospital with conjunctivitis. June he was invalided to. Spent the following 6 months in hospital, recuperating and then training in. Until transferred to the 56th Australian Infantry Battalion on 2. February 1917, serving with them until the end of the War. He was promoted Temporary Sergeant on 27. May 1917 being confirmed to that rank in August. SERVICE WITH 56 BATTALION AUSTRALIAN INFANTRY. On 14 February 1916 as part of the “doubling” of the AIF. Half of its recruits were Gallipoli veterans from the 4th Battalion, and the other half, fresh reinforcements from. In early 1917 the 56th Battalion participated in the advance that followed the German retreat to the Hindenburg Line. It was spared the assault but did, however, defend gains made during the second battle of Bullecourt. Later in the year, the AIF’s focus of operations switched to the Ypres sector in. The 56th’s major battle here was at Polygon Wood on 26 September. With the collapse of. In October 1917, a major German offensive on the Western Front was expected in early 1918. This came in late March and the 5th Division moved to defend the sector around Corbie. The 14th Brigade, took up positions to the north of Villers-Bretonneux and held these even when the village fell, threatening their flanks. Once the German offensive had been defeated, the Allies launched their own offensive in August 1918. The 14th Brigade did not play a major role in these operations until late in the month, but its actions were critical to the capture of Peronne, which fell on 2 September. The 56th fought its last major battle of the war, St Quentin Canal, between 29 September and 2 October 1918. It was resting out of the line when the Armistice was declared on 11 November. It ceased to exist as a separate entity on 10 April 1919, when the remnants of all of the 14th Brigade’s battalions were merged into a single unit. Probably due to his mounted service experience. Was attached to the 5th Divisional Pack Transport Troop for just over a week between 22nd September 1917 and 1. At the start of the 5. 5TH DIVISIONAL PACK TRANSPORT TROOP, FROM THE STORY OF THE 5TH DIVISION. An important administrative event of the Blaringhem period was the formation of a Divisional Pack Transport Troop. This was a large troop of about 300 pack animals, and the necessary animals and personnel were secured by uniting under one organisation detachments of men and animals from the whole of the transport units of the Division. The idea was to centralise all forward pack transport under one control in order to ensure equal distribution in the work of supply in the forward areas. Under the old arrangement, which worked well enough in easy sectors, it might happen that a brigade in the line had so many casualties in its pack animals, or might so overwork them, that its forward supplies would partially break down, while the pack animals in another brigade in reserve would be having very little work to do. Centralising the pack animals of the entire Division under one control would obviate any danger of this and would also secure equal distribution of work to men and animals. The chief argument against the innovation was that transport personnel would work better if they felt that they were labouring for their own units, instead of partially losing their identity in a Divisional Troop. General Hobbs and Colonel Bruche weighed the matter carefully, and decided that the certainty of regular supplies reaching every unit of the Division must be the first consideration, even if a very natural sentimental repugnance existed to a temporary loss of unit individuality. Curtis (5th Divisional Train) was made O. Divisional Pack Transport Troop and under his control it soon became involved in work of the greatest importance. The Divisional Pack Transport Troop was located about half-way between Dickebusch and. Staff Captains of brigades intimated daily the number of pack animals required for each unit in the brigade, and these animals reported every evening at the quartermaster’s stores of the various units. Here they were loaded up with the next day’s issue of food and water and carried it, under the direction of guides supplied by the units concerned, to wherever it was wanted. By means of the Divisional Pack Transport Troop, eighty-four pack animals more were available for the work of supplying the forward units than would have been the case if each unit had worked its own pack transport. This result was attained partly by reason of the fact that the supplies of the reserve brigade could be delivered on wheels by the Divisional Train. On the 28th of October the Division was relieved on the Broodseinde Ridge by the 2nd Australian Division and D. Moved back again to Scottish Lines on that date. The Divisional Pack Transport Troop having admirably fulfilled the purpose for which it was created, was disbanded on the same day and Capt. Curtis and his fine staff were able to look back on a hard task well and faithfully carried out. Many of their animals had been killed by shells or drowned in the mud and few people in the Division were more familiar than the Transport personnel with that hideous road which wound past Hell Fire Corner, Birr Crossroads and Bellevarde Lake up the Westhoek Ridge, and thence on to the Broodseinde Ridge. Major Langley and his provost and traffic control detachments, too, and the 5th D. Were on it night and day and the sustained heroism of these men and of the medical and signal details employed in the same area almost equals that of the front line troops. Continued to service with 56 Battalion and after a spending February 1918 in hospital, was detached again to 5. Division HQ (Salvage Party) from 15. In August 1918, Court was sent to. To join the Cadet Battalion and was commissioned Second Lieutenant 56 Battalion on 4th January 1919. In Courts Cadet report, it notes his Standard of Education is Poor and regarding ability to train a platoon; His knowledge is not very good. He can instruct when he knows the subject. However regarding ability to Command a platoon, he was noted as Good and under Special Qualifications; Riding. Would have completed his course 10. He has been handicapped by lack of education but has worked hard and with some knowledge will make an instructor. His command over men is good. I consider that he will make an efficient platoon commander. Was sent back to 56 Battalion in. He was finally discharged from the Army on 2. A superb group to a soldier who saw a great deal of action at both Gallipoli with the Light Horse, France with the Infantry and a rare MM to the 5. Division Pack Transport Troop, a short lived unit within the Division. Condition VF or better, mounted for display, light contact marks overall.

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!

A very interesting WW1 Military medal grouping, awarded to a medic in the 134th field ambulance, Royal Army Medical Corps. Charles Henrey Searle was born in Dawlish, 1878 and at a young age moved to Exeter. In 1911 he resided in 29 Stuart Road, Heavitree, Exeter with his wife and three children (two girls and a boy). Searle was a printer machinist for the nespaper”Exeter Flying Post”. Newspaper article: Western times 07/09/1917.’Military Medal for Heavltree Man Mrs. Stuart-road, Heavitree, received a letter yesterday from his commanding officer intimating that her husband, Sergt. Had been awarded the Military Medal for gallant conduct and devotion to duty. What special act was that won for Sergt. Searle this distinction was not stated, either by the O. Or the winner himself in a letter received at the same time, in which the honour was also mentioned. Searle, who was born at Dawlish, came to Exeter an early age. And for 20 years was employed machinist at the office of the late Exeter Flying Post. He left that employment March 1st to join the and three weeks later received his first stripe, the second coming seven weeks later, and the third three months after, while training on Salisbury Plain. Going across the Channel, he reverted corporal, but three months had been restored to his earlier rank, and since being awarded the Military Medal has been made staff-sergeant, an excellent record. Will be interesting recall incident which occurred three months after Sergt. With others, he proceeded a spot where there were many wounded men. One by one his companions collapsed, but Sergt. Searle stuck to his post for nine days and nights Lack rest and sleep then told its tale, and he also collapsed, and a relief party carried himthe last of the original contingentto the rear, where, happily, speedily recovered. Sgt Searle was awarded the M. M for Gallantry, mentioned in the London Gazette on October 17, 1917. Mentioned in the Edinburgh gazette 22 October, 1917. Searle most likely joined the R. C, trained at salisbury plains with a field ambulance and upon travelling overseas to France and Flanders was sent into the 39th division, being drafted into the 134th field ambulance. 134th at this time were suffering heavy casualties as a result of the battle of Messines (June, 1917) and required reinforcements. Shortly after this the 134th field ambulance were present at the battle of Pilckem Ridge and the duration of the third battle of Ypres (Passhendaele, 1917). This would have been around the same time that Searle is mentioned on the letter and subsequently recieving the M. M for gallant conduct and devotion to duty. The event Searle is mentioned in the letter to his wife is a near citation for his M. Searle would have earned the Military medal for gallant conduct at the battle of Passhendaele with the 134th field ambulance. Another member of the 134 F. A recieved a M. M for the battle of Picklem Ridge (Passendaele) for dressing and bringing in wounded. He is gazzeted at the same time as Searle was (Edinburgh Gazette 22October, 1917). A very interesting medal group, the 134th field ambulance aren’t known for recieving a lot of gallantry in France and Flanders. Medals are all correctly impressed. M – 74443 SJT C. SEARLE 134 / F.
