Rare Ww1 British War Medal In Bronze 4082 G. Camilleri Maltese Labour Corps

Offered is a bronze British War Medal issued to P. Ho served with the 1st. Battalion of the Maltese Labour Corps. Possibly in the Gallipoli theatre and certainly in the Salonika Campaign. British War Medal 1914-20 in Bronze impressed named 4082 G. Comes with the original ribbon, as worn, showing fraying to suspension rod area. Some 5600 men served in the Maltese Labour Corps. An analysis of the regimental numbers of the recruits of the MLC that had died in service indicate that numbers between 992 to 5,051 belong to those that served with 1. It is recorded that, almost from the very beginning, Maltese Labour battalions were doing splendid work. Gallipoli and Salonika knew well the lilting music of the swarthy gangs of broad-shouldered men who sang as tirelessly as they worked. Today, however, even Maltese authors hardly feature their contribution in the writings on the Maltese war effort. In August 1915, there was a request for 750 volunteers from Malta to form a labour battalion for service with the British Army. More than 1,000 applied and by the start of September 864 of these had been selected. The excellent rate of pay (2 shillings & 6 pence per day, plus 6 pence a day if married and one penny for each child) and a flexible 3-month contract was very attractive. The men were allocated roles as labourers, drivers, and stevedores and placed under the command of Major JV Aspinall of the King’s Own Royal Malta Regiment of Militia. Many of the unit’s other 14 officers were also drawn from the island’s militia. The unit served at Mudros, a Greek port being used to support the Gallipoli Campaign from September 1915. Some 234 men volunteered to serve close to the front at Gallipoli as stevedores. These were accompanied by a quartermaster, sergeant, corporal and five men from the Malta Corps of the St John Ambulance Brigade and three Roman Catholic chaplains. The unit suffered one man killed in action and two slightly wounded. The corps was said to have performed well under Turkish shellfire. The unit worked closely with the ANZAC forces during the campaign and two of the officers who led the MLC at Gallipoli later served as Maltese commissioners to Australia. Major-General Walter Campbell, on behalf of the Mediterranean Expeditionary Force, wrote to the Governor and Commander-in-Chief, Malta (Paul Methuen, 3rd Baron Methuen) that “I have much pleasure in informing you that the Battalion performed most excellent work, both at ANZAC and elsewhere, and I shall be grateful if you will be good enough to express to the Commanding Officer, and through him to the NCOs and men of the Battalion, my high appreciation of the services they have rendered”. In 1916, the British Salonika Army was formed to support the Serbian Army fighting German, Austrian and Bulgarian forces on the Macedonian Front and to resist the Bulgarian invasion of Greece. In August, it was decided to reform the 1st Battalion MLC to serve in this theatre. The unit, under Major S. Samut-Tagliaferro (from the militia) and comprising a dispenser, six hospital orderlies, 502 labourers, and 307 stevedores, arrived in Salonika on 26 September 1916 and established themselves at the Ordnance Depot. A further 216 men arrived in October. All of the British Army’s supplies had to be transported by boat and landed at Salonika whereas the Central Powers could make use of shorter overland supply routes. The 1st battalion MLC is believed to have assisted in the construction of two new deep-water piers near the Standard Oil Depot, these being known as Malta Pier and Pinto Pier. The unit served outside of Salonika on the lines of communication and suffered 49 deaths during the deployment. We list militaria and coins weekly.

NOTE ; I have relisted this lot of medals due to a message advising me that these are most likely copies. Apparently the medal forums covering such topics chat about the lettering & numbering (rounded “3″, as compared to flat topped “3″,) styles, blemishes (dot or no dot) between the V and B of the obverse, etc, etc. However, they also comment that the copy BWM`s , in bronze, has the suspension loop moulded into the medal. This lot to be auctioned here, shows the hole for the pin for attachment of the suspension loop! ? And they show age….. The pictures tell more than I can so please spend some time to view properly. If anything else, they would make good gap fillers for any collection………………. PAIR of BRONZE or copper? WW1 British War Medals (BWM) to the Chinese Labour Corps CHINESE. These units (one from many countries, India, Burma, etc) were used during ww1 to build roads, for loading ships, and often for the hard menial work of trench construction, etc so saving the allies manpower for other uses. Unfortunately missing the suspension bars from both of these… Never the less, the Bronze WW1 BWM`s are harder to find than the silver version`s due to them being scrapped for their copper content, in quantity, between the World Wars.. They have no material value unlike the silver versions but this still does not belittle the valuable service that these units contributed to the 1914/18 Great war. These came from a estate sale of a medal collector, some years ago….. The item “WW1 MEDALS, BWM. BRONZE. CHINESE LABOUR CORPS. CONSECUTIVELY NUMBERED. REPLICAS” is in sale since Saturday, March 11, 2017. This item is in the category “Collectables\Militaria\1914 – 1918 (WWI)”. The seller is “glengellan” and is located in Aspley, QLD.

I have been clearing a few items from my fathers estate, this medal I remember playing with as a child in the early 1970′s, according to my father he was given the medal as a boy in London from a Chinese family who lived nearby and who worked in the docks area, they told him the recipient of the medal had died in the first world war, my brother was able to check with the Commonwealth war graves people and download a copy of the certificate commemorating his death. The medal which comes in the rarer bronze metal is marked around the rim with: No 40732 Chinese L. C, the certificate shows that this relates to Labourer Lo Hai Ch’lng 40732 100. Coy Chinese Labour Corps who died on 22 November 1917 and who is remembered with honour at the Arques-La-Bataille British cemetery. To go with the medal is a small brass trench art shell case pot, this is marked to the base Aug 1918 with other numbers and symbols, the outside of the pot is very faintly decorated (and hard to photograph) with two fish and two flower pots and running from top to bottom are two lines of Chinese characters, obviously I havent the first clue what this means but I would like to think that it is in celebration of Lo Hai Ch’lng’s life. The medal is very dirty and the ribbon is very rough, there is a bump on the edge near the number, the shell case is in good condition but faintly decorated as previously stated, this stands 3.5 inches high.
