Numbered Army Cuban Pacification Medal to a Colonel/WW1 Silver Star Recipient

This is a No. 811 US Army Cuban Pacification Campaign medal. It has the original full wrapped, open C catch brooch and original ribbon. The brooch has been mounted upside down. Also the ribbon does show some wear at the middle folds, but this is due to a defective ribbon dye used by the mint. The planchet is in very good condition, with no edge knocks. The letters and numbers are well struck, clear and very easy to read. This specific medal was awarded and issued to Colonel (then Captain) Walter Trotter Bates. Bates was born in Dayton, Ohio, on August 1, 1872. He first enlisted in Company G, of the 17th US Infantry, at St. Paul, Minnesota, on August 29, 1895. He was honorably discharged, on July 6, 1898, as a Sergeant, to accept a commission to 2nd Lieutenant at Fort Leavenworth, KS. He was awarded this medal while he was a Captain with the 27th Infantry. His Army registers show that after he accepted the 2nd Lt. Commission on June 22, 1898, he was promoted to 1st Lt. On March 2, 1999; Capt. On June 2, 1903; Major on May 15, 1917; Lt. On August 5, 1917, and Colonel on July 1, 1920. He retired on disability on August 31, 1936. During WW1 he was assigned to the 27th Infantry Division and was awarded the Silver Star Citation. He died on April 17, 1956, and is buried at the Arlington National Cemetery, in Arlington, VA. I will include a copy of his issue record for this medal; a copy of his Spanish American War application in Minnesota; a 3 page copy of his Army Registers for 1916, 1948 and 1961; and a copy of a picture of his headstone. I should also mention that besides the Silver Star medal, he was also eligible for the WW1 Victory medal with Somme Offensive, Ypres-Lys, and Defensive Sector battle clasps, and was issued a Spanish War Service medal #2662, and the Philippine Campaign medal No. 961, but the whereabouts of these other medals is unknown. My Friend Scott Smith has emailed me to advise that Colonel Bates was not awarded the Silver Star Citation in WW1 but actually was awarded the SS for action in the Philippines, in 1899. Scott Smith has been a researcher for many years, and has published many USMC research books.

World War One Imperial German Medal Group with a photo of the recipient. The group includes the Iron Cross 1st class marker marked W. To reverse, the Iron Cross 2nd Class ring is marker marked K. And the German Honorary World War Commemorative Medal of the German Legion of Honour. Unfortunately I don’t know who the recipient is but the medals and photos all came together. He appears to be an officer but I’m not sure which regiment he served in. The three medals can be seen being worn on the photo. He is also wearing his Pickelhaube helmet. Unfortunately the ribbons are missing. You can see in the photo he received the gilt oak leaf with swords emblem to his German Legion of Honour medal showing he was a front line soldier. The reverse of the photo has marks in each corner showing where it was at one time in a photo album or frame. Please let me know if you need any additional photos or details. Please see my other listings of British and German medals and militaria. Thanks and kind regards.
