He enlisted into the regular Army on the 28/10/1913 to the Royal Artillery and his occupation is recorded as Wagon Maker. He landed in France with the 15. Division on the 19/8/1914. Division was involved in the desperate fighting of 1914, including The Battle of Mons and subsequent retreat, The Battle of Le Cateau, The Battle of the Marne, The Battle of the Aisne, The Battles of La Bassee and Messines & The First Battle of Ypres. Second Battle of Ypres and the Capture of Hill 60. The Sheffield Daily Telegraph 15/6/1915 lists him as being wounded in action. The nature or severity of the wound is unknown. It is possible that on recovering from his injuries he was posted to 134th Battery 32nd Brigade 4th Division. His Divisional Gallantry Card is dated 22/10/1917 and it is believed this was issued prior to being nominated for the DCM incident. The diary records on the 31/10/15′Heavy Gas casualties’ on the 27th and 134th, casualties approx. 6 Officers (1 Killed) and 19 other ranks. Houchin’s citation reads: For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. When a gas shell wrecked the officers dug out and all the occupants became casualties, he showed great coolness and determination as one of the rescue party, working under heavy fire and in spite of gas fumes. On the following morning, though suffering from gas, he manned a gun with the only other man available and fired a bombardment program made out for the whole battery. His splendid courage and determination enabled the battery to remain in action and carry out its tasks during a most important period of the operations. For the same action, Lt. Henry James Ivens, R. (WIA in the incident) MC citation reads: For. Conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. When a gas shell struck his dug-out, killing, wounding, or gassing all the occupants, he assisted in recovering the wounded and then went to the dressing station. While there his battery commander was brought in. Realising that no officer was left at the battery he re-joined it and took command until taken away in an unconscious condition. Brigade War Diary records on the 24/11/1917 that he has been awarded the DCM. This was the 3. Battle of Ypres (Passchendaele). The war diary for this period is full of fire missions, receiving counter battery fire and gas attacks by the Germans. A hard fought campaign for not just the infantry. He was also awarded the Italian Medal for Military Valour (Bronze) being gazetted in the London Gazette 12/9/1918. During WW1, 365 Silver & 954 Bronze awards were given to members of the Commonwealth forces. He transferred to’B Class’ reserve on 27/11/1919.

German Cross in Gold post WW2 version – no swastika, NICE EXAMPLE – PERFECT PIN DEVICE – GENUINE ST&L (STEINHAUER & LUCK) PIECE, LATER EXAMPLE (OPEN HINGE), VERY NICE CONDITION. In 1957 the West German government authorised replacement Iron Crosses with an Oak Leaf Cluster in place of the swastika, similar to the Iron Crosses of 1813, 1870, and 1914, which could be worn by World War II Iron Cross recipients. The 1957 law also authorised de-Nazified versions of most other World War IIera decorations (except those specifically associated with Nazi Party organizations, such as SS Long Service medals, or with the expansion of the German Reich, such as the medals for the annexation of Austria, the Sudetenland, and the Memel region). The main government contract to manufacture and supply these new de-nazified WW2 1957 official decorations went to the world famous German firm Steinhauer & Lueck, Luedenscheid Germany. Knights Crosses, Iron Crosses , Wound Badges, Tank Assault Badges etc were re-designed by Steinhauer & Lück – often with the oak-leaf spray replacing the swastika, with S&L having the sole patent rights to all WW2 1957 German decorations. S&L did not have the whole monopoly on medal making, other famous firms such as Deschler & Sohn, BH Maher and Juncker also manufactured these new German decorations. Lüdenscheid is situated between the cities Dortmund and Bonn. It was here that one of the youngest medal firms was founded in 1889 by August Steinhauer and Gustav Adolf Lück. The first production began in a cellar, the customer base continued to increase. A property was bought at 51 Hochstrasse which is still home for this famous company today. During WW2 Steinhauer & Lück produced medals and badges, like the famous Knights Cross and many other types of medals and badges. In 1957 this company was awarded the contract to produce all the newly re-designed legal WW2 1957 de-nazified decorations, plus the contract to manufacture all of Germany’s official decorations including Germany’s highest order the Bundesverdienstkreuz. Only a very limited number of original WW2 1957 medals are still produced, mainly Iron Crosses, German Cross Gold & Silver & Wound Badges and are considered 100% genuine by the German Government. The German Cross (German: Deutsches Kreuz) was instituted by Adolf Hitler on 16 November 1941 as an award ranking higher than the Iron Cross First Class but below the Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross. The German Cross was issued in two degrees: gold and silver (the color of the laurel wreath around the swastika), the former being an award for bravery, the latter being for distinguished service and was considered a continuation of the War Merit Cross with swords. The German Cross was unique in that the Gold and Silver degrees were considered as separate awards but should not be worn simultaneously. However, pictures of recipients wearing both grades exist. There are a total of 11 recorded instances of a recipient receiving both the German Cross in Silver and Gold during the war. A special grade, the German Cross in Gold with Diamonds, was manufactured towards the end of World War II but was never bestowed. The medal consists of a star badge, containing a swastika (in German, Hakenkreuz, “hooked cross”, which gives the award its name, the “German cross”). It had a diameter of 6.5 cm and was worn on the righthand pocket of the tunic. If a recipient was awarded both the silver and gold divisions, both of them could be worn on the uniform. This award was also available in cloth form, which made for easier wear on the combat uniform; Helmuth Weidling wore this variety during his defense of Berlin in April-May 1945. Far more awards in gold (combat) were made than in silver (support). The cross title refers to the fact that the swastika is a cross, a sun-cross. In 1957 an alternative version for replacement of the German Cross was implemented. It features a Iron Cross in place of the swastika, whose display was banned in Germany, and later in many other European countries, after the war. Veterans who had earned the medal during the Third Reich were unable to wear it on formal occasions, before this change. The design of this decoration was executed by Professor R. Klein of Munich and the first examples were made by the DESCHLER firm of Munich. The first prototypes contained 10 rivets, with a system of attachment typical of the Iron Cross of 1914. To begin with, the DESCHLER firm used 6 rivets, then from from about the middle of 1942 onward, only 4. The base piece consists of a silver star with eight rays, upon which is fixed another star with eight rays, lighter and smaller, in a dark gray color. A silvered disk bordered with two red bands is placed above. A swastika in black enamel bordered silver is fixed on the disk by means of two or four prongs situated on the ends of the arms. Between the two red bands is found a gilt or silvered wreath. The year 1941 is embossed at the base of the wreath. The wreath is fixed with four rivets. In some cases the wreath rivets maintain the whole cross (ex Zimmermann), in other case they just hold together the wreath , the circle and the black star. The hinge itself may be a bent piece of metal soldered in a recess at the top of the star (types marked 20, 134, DESCHLER), or more simply, soldered directly onto the star (Juncker and Godet types). The pin is fixed to the hinge by a cross-pin. The construction of this decoration is the most complex of all the military decorations of the Third Reich.

Offered is a Distinguished Flying Medal group of 6 medals to Flight Sergeant A. Brown, who flew as a Navigator in Mosquitoes as part of the 128th Squadron (Pathfinder Force) R. The swing mounted group consists of: Distinguished Flying Medal G. 1939-45 Star; Atlantic Star with imitation clasp AIR CREW EUROPE; Africa Star; Defence Medal; War Medal 1939-45 with Mentioned In Despatches oak leaf. The medals are swing mounted. All medals excluding the D. Are unnamed – as issued. Comes with Air Ministry envelope containing unused period form. Copy of the D. Recommendation and & details of sorties-targets and dates. Copies London Gazette 1945. Andrew Brown, who presumably was active earlier in the Coastal Command, began his operational career with the 128th Squadron in September 1944, the same month that the squadron was reformed at Wyton as a Mosquito light bomber unit (8th Path Finder Force Group), as part of the P. Fast Night Strike Force. In this capacity, Brown went on to complete his 40 operational sorties against German targets. This included 18 sorties to Berlin. A scarce WWII D. Accompanied by copy of his recommendation for the D. 128 Squadron reformed at Wyton on 5 September 1944 as a Mosquito squadron in No. 8 Group, and was part of the Light Night Striking Force. The squadron flew night intruder missions over Germany for the rest of the war. Locations: September 1944-June 1945: Wyton. October 1945-March 1946: B. The Light Night Striking Force (LNSF) was an outgrowth of the Pathfinder Force use of the fast and long-ranged Mosquito bomber, which could carry a sizeable bomb load. Under 8 Group, the number of Mosquito squadrons was built up. These were used for harassing raids on Germany. To the two (Oboe-equipped) Mosquito squadrons already in Pathfinder Force, a third No. 139 was added in June 1943, which Bennett intended to use for diversionary raids to draw the German nightfighters away from the main force. In February 1944 an entirely Mosquito raid was mounted against Düsseldorf. It was formed of the usual marker aircraft from 105 Squadron and 692 Squadron Mosquitos, each carrying a single 4,000 lb “cookie”, and backup aircraft with 500 lb delayed action bombs. With Harris’ support, Bennett formed more Mosquito squadrons to expand the LNSF, giving him nine bomber squadrons, as well as the Oboe-equipped markers and 8 Group’s own meteorological Mosquitoes. The LNSF achieved 27,239 sorties, their best month being March 1945 with nearly 3,000 sorties. This was achieved with the loss of just under 200 aircraft on operations or “damaged beyond repair”. Flight Sergeant Brown flew 40 operation sorties in Mosquitoes from September 1944-10. Targets were : Karlsruhe, Hamburg, Osnabruck, Hannover x 5, Munster, Berlin x 18, Mannheim x 2, Sterkrade, Stuttgart, Magdeburg x 3, Erfurt x 2, Nuremburg, Kassel x 2 & Essen.

A good group to a long serving Sergeant Major of the Rifle Corps who would have seen a great deal of action. Additionally a very scarce casualty to the Rifles for the battle of Tamaai. The following is from A Brief History of the Regiment. The 3rd Battalion, under Lieutenant-Colonel Cromer Ashburnham, remained in South Africa, and was quartered at Pietermaritzburg, when in January, 1881, the Boers, under Joubert, invaded Natal. Major-General Sir George Colley, the High Commissioner and Commander. In-Chief, having assembled at. A small force, which included the 3rd Battalion, advanced and attacked the Boers on the 28th in position at Laing’s Nek. Battalion in part covered the left flank, and in part formed a reserve to the assaulting column. The attack was repulsed with heavy loss, and the Battalion covered the retreat, but did not lose many men. On the 25th of January the 2nd Battalion arrived from. In a state of the highest efficiency after its successful experience in the Afghan War. It marched forthwith to join headquarters at. Where it remained until the armistice in March. 8th, 1881, The Boers, as a result of their victory at Laing’s Nek, made a desperate eriort to sever the communications between Coney’s force at Mount Prospect, and the advanced base at. The General accordingly took prompt steps to avert this catastrophe, and thus. It came about that on the 8th of February was fought on the. An action as glorious as any in the history of the 60th. Colley, with two 9-pounder R. Guns, thirty-eight men of the Mounted Infantry, and five companies of the 3rd Battalion, under Ashburnham, marched early on the 8th from Prospect upon Newcastle, crossed the Ingogo River, and, on ascending the heights beyond, was attacked from all sides shortly before noon. The British position was a plateau covered with short grass, rocks, and boulders; whereas the kloofs and slopes occupied by the Boers were also not only strewn with rocks, but overgrown with. Long grass, which being three and four feet high afforded excellent cover. The troops, though completely surrounded, maintained the fight for nearly seven hours, until at last, in the gloom of approaching night and a heavy thunderstorm, the fire ceased and the enemy sullenly withdrew. The Battalion had lost five out of thirteen officers, and 119 out of 295 other ranks; of I Company only one officer and thirteen men were left, but nowhere had the enemy gained ground. The survivors, without food or water, and with ammunition running short. But with courage and discipline still unshaken, then faced the last ordeal of that long day. Little could be done for the wounded, except to collect and leave them with the chaplain, the doctor, and a few other non-combatants; and then, in drenching rain and darkness only broken by flashes of lightning, the few remaining horses were hooked into the guns, and the little force moved silently across the veldt to the river, which was in flood, and had to be forded breast high. So slippery was the ground from the rain that the horses could not draw the guns ; this for the last few miles was done by the Riflemen. At 8.30 a. Prospect Camp was reached after a peculiarly strenuous test of the courage and endurance of the troops. “The conduct of all ranks throughout this trying day was admirable, ” wrote Sir George Colley in his despatch. The comparatively young soldiers of the 60th Rifles behaved with the steadiness and coolness of veterans. At all times perfectly in hand, they held or changed their ground as directed without hurry or confusion ; though under heavy fire, themselves fired steadily, husbanding their ammunition and at the end of the day, with sadly reduced numbers formed and moved off the ground with the most perfect steadiness and order; and, finally, after eighteen hours of continuous fatigue, readily and I cheerfully attached themselves to the guns, and I dragged them up the long hill from the Ingogo, when the horses were unable to do so. On the night of the 26th of February Sir George Colley decided to seize Majuba Hill by a night march Feb. A hazardous undertaking which was ably executed. The following day the Boers in three assaulting columns, covered by the rifle fire of their largely superior force. Carried the mountain with splendid gallantry, and completely defeated the small British force of 414 soldiers and sailors. Two companies of the 3rd Battalion were posted upon the lower spurs of the mountain, and with a third company sent out later with ammunition they covered. The retreat, but were only slightly engaged. The brave and accomplished Colley dauntless to the end died a soldier’s death upon the summit of the mountain, and deplorable indeed was the loss in officers and men of the force engaged. A peace insisted upon by the British Government brought this unhappy campaign to a close little to the satisfaction of the troops concerned. The 3rd Battalion, under Colonel Ashburnham, had been moved from. When the outbreak of hostilities in. Caused it to be despatched with the 38th Regiment to. On the 18th of July, shortly after the bombardment of. It landed while the city was still in flames, and formed part of the advanced force under Major-General Sir Archibald Alison. A portion of the Battalion took part with the Mounted Infantry, on the 22nd of July, in the first engagement of the campaign at Mallaha Junction, eight miles from. And again in the reconnaissance in force on. The 5th August near Ramleh. On August the 18th, upon the arrival of Sir Garnet Wolseley, it embarked for. And took part in the actions of Tel-el-Mahuta on the 25th, and Kassassin on the 9th of September, when the enemy, about 13,000 strong, was completely defeated. Ashburnham, which had been organised for the night. March of the 12th-13th September and the assault of the lines of Te-el-Kebir at daylight. The Brigade forming the support of the Highland Brigade closed up at the beginning of the battle as day began to dawn, and gave a timely assistance in the assault of the enemy’s lines. The Battalion in two lines pressed eagerly forward with its accustomed dash, and entered. The Egyptian works at about the centre of the position, where Major Cramer, second in Command, was wounded, and had his horse shot under him. After an ebb and flow of strenuous bayonet fighting the enemy gave way on all sides, and, suffering great losses, were. Broken and dispersed in headlong flight. Was captured, and the war ended, upon which the Battalion formed part of the army of occupation. In February, 1884, the Battalion, under Ashburnham, was ordered to Suakim, where it served in a Brigade under that distinguished Rifleman, Major- General Sir Redvers Buller, as part of General Sir Gerald Graham’s force. On the 29th of February it took part in the defeat of the Dervishes at El Teb, and on the 13th of March it was present at the critical battle of Tamai. The troops were in two squares, one under Sir Gerald Graham, commanding the force, the other under Buller. Graham’s square was broken, and in the confusion some of its men poured a volley into Buller’s, causing one face to run in. Sir Redvers at once rode outside the square, and, with great coolness, rallied his men. By restoring the formation he undoubtedly staved off a terrible disaster, for, had the square been really broken, nothing could have saved. This action ended the Campaign.
