A SCARCE WW2 GREEK COUNTER INSURGENCY OPERATIONS M. GROUP TO A GUNNER RA WHO ACTING AS AN INFANTRYMAN WAS INVOLVED IN THE CHAOTIC AND BRUTAL FIGHTING IN. BETWEEN DECEMBER 1944 AND JANUARY 1945 WHERE SO MANY COMBATANTS AND CIVILIANS LOST THEIR LIVES. 1939-45 STAR; AFRICA STAR. STAR, DEFENCE AND WAR MEDALS. London Gazette 10 May 1945. In recognition of gallant and distinguished services in the field. 64th Light Anti-Aircraft Regiment, Royal Artillery was deployed to. At this time German forces had been defeated in Greece and 64. Regiment had been converted to infantry as the need for anti Aircraft units had been greatly reduced in that theatre of operations. The aim of this was so that units like the 64. Would take over the roles of guarding POWs, policing work etc, freeing up regular Infantry troops. However with the German forces being pushed out of the country, their was a political vacuum, in which Greek partisan, Communist and loyalist forces vied for power, with the British being heavily involved. As such, many of the units that had been deployed as secondary troops, ended up in the middle of a brutal couple of months of fighting. Gunner Hulmes, whos unit was based in. Would have been involved in the heavy fighting against ELAS forces and it was for his gallantry during this time that he was Awarded the Military Medal. Among other fighting, men from the 64. Regiment, along with forces from the Greek Brigade were involved in the defence of Averoff Prison when it was assaulted. From After the Battle magazine. On December 18, at dusk, ELAS scored a major success when they stormed Averoff Prison in the. The jail complex lay outside the British perimeter. ELAS planned the action in order to get their hands on two former collaborationist Prime Ministers, General Georgios Tsolakoglou (April 1941-December 1942) and Ioannis Rallis (April 1943 – October 1944), and others awaiting trial for alleged collaboration or war crimes. The prison, which held some 640 inmates, was guarded by gunners from the 64th Light. RA and about 150 men from the Greek Brigade. While one part of the 1,000 strong attacking force kept the building under a heavy barrage of small-arms fire and grenades, another set the west block of the prison alight. While the flames threatening to engulf the prisoners in their cells, the British commander had no option but to open the cells and order the inmates to rendezvous at a point outside the prison walls. In the chaos and confusion, less than half of the prisoners made it. Many others were slaughtered by the frenzied mob and several of the British soldiers were murdered as well. See the following link for a good brief summary of events in. Hulmes Award is one of some 100 awards for those involved in counter insurgency operations in. In December 1944 and January 1945; 3 of which went to Hulmes unit. During this time 1000s of combatants on both sides were killed and wounded (approximately 1300 British) and it is thought around 20,000 civilians lost their lives. As such, the recommendations for these politically sensitive awards have been closed for 75 years. Therefore it would be hoped these recommendations will be made available in a year or two. An intriguing award for gallantry for operations that have been somewhat swept under the carpet by the British Government.

The Italians had been retreating to Dessie, to the north of Addis Ababa, through country where just a single road cut through solid mountain, reaching 11,000 feet high at Mussolini Pass. No landing ground could be found in this area, and the nearest at Combolchia was still in Italian hands and nearly 250 miles from the capital.

WW2 RAF 76 Squadron Pilot Air Crew Europe Medal Group, Nuremberg Raid POW

Superb fully researched Air Crew Europe Medal Group to a 76 Squadron Halifax pilot who was shot down and taken prisoner on the Nuremberg Raid of 30/3/1944. Medals are original issue and rarely for WW2 medals were engraved by the pilot. In addition to the medals there are several pages of research and a copy of Martin Middlebrook’s book on the Nuremberg Raid in which the pilot is mentioned several times. F/Lt Henry “Roger” Coverley was a pilot with 76 Squadron flying Handley Page Halifax III aircraft. He even had his own plane with his personal nose art (see photo, note: this photo is not included in the group, it is scanned from a book). Flying Halifax LK795 MP-P on the infamous Nuremberg Raid the aircraft was shot down by a Me110 and crashed near the town of Hamm. All the crew survived apart from Sgt Mott who was killed, despite attempts to evade capture they were all taken prisoner. Coverley was a POW at Stalag Luft 1. He survived the war and was awarded the Air Crew Europe Star along with the standard WW2 service medals. Interestingly, and rare for WW2 medals, he had them all engraved with his rank and name and service number. The engravings are correct for the period. Later he was featured in several Bomber Command books such as Middlebrook’s Nuremberg Raid, Nichol’s The Red Line and Simpson’s excellent Ops, Victory at all Costs. With his contributions and being named in so many key books they all add to the research value of his service and medals. Please see photos for details, medals are in good order, not cleaned. ACE is of course 100% genuine as can be seen. A really nice and rarer ACE grouping.
