Post will be Tracking, sign for your end A4 envelope. 25th Australian Infantry Battalion. The 25th Battalion was raised at Enoggera in Queensland in March 1915 as part of the 7th Brigade. Although predominantly composed of men recruited in Queensland, the battalion also included a small contingent of men from Darwin. The battalion left Australia in early July, trained in Egypt during August, and by early September was manning trenches at Gallipoli. At Gallipoli the 7th Brigade reinforced the depleted New Zealand and Australian Division. The 25th Battalion, however, had a relatively quiet time because the last major Allied offensive had been launched, and turned back, in the previous month. It left the peninsular on 18 December 1915. After further training in Egypt, the 25th Battalion proceeded to France. Landing on 19 March 1916, it was the first AIF battalion to arrive there. Now fighting as part of the 2nd Division, it took part in its first major battle at Pozieres between 25 July and 7 August in the course of which it suffered 785 casualties. After a spell in a quieter sector of the front in Belgium, the 2nd Division came south in October to attack again in the Somme Valley. The 25th Battalion took part in two attacks to the east of Flers, both of which floundered in the mud. Although it acted in a supporting role at the second battle of Bullecourt, the 25th Battalion did not carry out a major offensive role again until 20 September 1917, when it was part of the 2nd Division’s first wave at the battle of Menin Road in Belgium. Victory here was followed up with the capture of Broodseinde Ridge on 4 October. The 25th reprised its role from Menin Road, in what was its last large-scale offensive action for the year. 1918 was an exhausting year for the 25th Battalion. It fought to turn back the German spring offensive in April, and then participated in battles at Morlancourt, Hamel, Amiens and along the Somme Valley as the German Army was pushed ever closer to defeat. These actions sapped the strength of the AIF, already terribly weak due to earlier casualties and lack of reinforcements. In September, the 25th was one of several battalions ordered to disband to reinforce others. Its troops mutinied, winning the Battalion a temporary reprieve. The battalion went into the line one last time on 3 October 1918 and took part in a successful attack to break through the German defences around Beaurevoir. It was disbanded nine days later.

An original group of World War Two medals to a Royal Air Force Aircraftman 1st Class who was killed in action on 1st November 1943. The medals were awarded to Arthur Wilson who came from Shildon in County Durham. The Air Crew Europe Star. The original memorial scroll named to Aircraftman 1st Class A. Wilson Royal Air Force with some writing, the medals included and the address for Mrs J Wilson on the reverse. A pre-war photo of Arthur Wilson in suit and tie marked AK1 A Wilson RAF KIA on the reverse in pencil. Arthur Wilson was born in 1921 and he was 22 when he died in 1943. His death was registered in Shrewsbury and he is buried at Shildon Cemetery and is commemorated on St John’s Church Shildon war memorial – photos of the memorial shown above. I’m not sure on the actual action that caused his death but this could be researched. It would have been one of his first sorties due to his rank. The medals come with their original ribbons and they have been mounted on a piece of card. Worthy of more research. Please let me know if you need any additional photos or details.

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).
