Offered is a general Service Medal (1918 – 62) with 2 clasps IRAQ, N. PERSIA, impressed named 33157 PTE: O. Comes with copies medal roll & medal index cards. Private McDonell served with the Royal Irish Fusiliers post WW1 and his records will still be held at the Ministry of Defence. He is on the medal roll for clasps Iraq (10/12/19 13/6/20) & NW Persia (10/8 31/12 20) and it is highly probable that he only just missed out on WW1 active service. In 1921 the Army re numbered every soldier with a 7 digit number, Pte McDonell being given 7041379. The threat of Arab nationalism, a resurgent Bolshevik Russia and the international power struggle for control of oil production meant that the British government found it necessary to send troops to areas of vital national interest in the Middle East. The nationalist Arabs had limited arms, mostly acquired during the First World War after the defeat of the Turks. They were now using these against the British and so the 1st Battalion The Royal Irish Fusiliers was nominated to carry out a difficult and thankless internal security task in Mesopotamia (now Iraq). The first stage of the Faugh’s journey ended at the head of the Persian (Arabian) Gulf, where they transferred to a river boat and proceeded up the River Tigris. Changing to rail and road for another 400 miles, they eventually came to ancient Kasvin, capital of the Persian Empire under the Safavids from 15481598, where they found that their barracks were nothing more than a collection of monotonous mud huts. This experience was despite assurances given to Parliament in London on 23 July 1919 by Henry Foster, Financial Secretary to the War Office who, in response to being asked. What arrangements are made for the well-being of the troops stationed at Kasvin, Persia; and whether he is aware that complaints are being made that the food is insufficient, that the postal service is most irregular, and that the general conditions are very bad there? Replied : No previous complaints have reached the War Office regarding the conditions at Kasvin. It is stated by an officer who passed through there in April that the troops were well hutted and that there was no shortage of food. The climatic conditions are much better than in Mesopotamia. As regards the postal arrangements, I understand that there was previously some delay in the case of mails which were sent viâ Mesopotamia, but arrangements have since been made for a new service from Constantinople. Wednesday, 1 September, 1920. Lieutenant Colonel Dobbs and his battalion set out on 1 September from Khanikin, north east of Baghdad, for Mirfana which was 20 miles away. They expected trouble at two passes, Fasilah and Qizil. Lying on a high ridge in the Fasilah Pass, the enemy were waiting and opened fire on C Company. The enemy advanced over exposed ground down a forward slope where they were struck by the machine guns and artillery of the supporting column. The enemy was driven from the pass and the Faughs suffered only two casualties, one of whom, Lieutenant H V Gough, was severely wounded. Between 9/11/19 – 21/3/1921 the Battalion suffered 8 Killed.

Jenkins was awarded the military medal for bravery for his actions in killing the Japanese officer. The katana sword that killed Hubert is one of the star items and treasures of the Scotts Dragoon Guards Museum in Edinburgh and it can be seen on their website. The sword was donated to the museum by Trooper Vernon Jenkins. Details of the attack and death of Captain Hubert Cornaby are included in the book’Tank Tracks to Rangoon by Bryan Perrett’. There is a photo of Hubert Cornaby when he attended Old Aldenham School in Hertfordshire shown above – he is on the third row from the front, forth from the right. Hubert’s father was William Basil Cornaby a Far Eastern Trader and Shipper of Hong Kong – where Hubert had been born. Captain Cornaby had joined the regiment as a 2nd Lieutenant on 15th April 1941. He was promoted to Captain and also Temporary Major from 12th January 1944. Captain Cornaby was initially buried in Mandalay but his body, along with other servicemen, was re-buried at the Taukkyan War Cemetery in Myanmar (formally Burma). A very interesting and well documented group to an officer casualty of the Burma Campaign worthy of more research. Please let me know if you need any additional photos or information.

BARNHAMS WARTIME SERVICE AT THE. In an attempt to lure out and destroy a portion of the Grand Fleet, the High Seas Fleet, composed of 16 dreadnoughts, 6 pre dreadnoughts, 6 light cruisers, and 31 torpeado boats, departed the Jade early on the morning of 31 May. The fleet sailed in concert with Rear Admiral Von Hippers five battlecruisers and supporting cruisers and torpedo boats. The Royal Navy’s Room 40 had intercepted and decrypted German radio traffic containing plans of the operation. In response the Admiralty ordered the Grand Fleet, totalling some 28 dreadnoughts and 9 battlecruisers, to sortie the night before to cut off and destroy the High Seas Fleet. Barham slipped her mooring at 22:08 and was followed by the rest of Beatty’s ships. When dawn broke Beatty ordered his forces into cruising formation with the 5th Battle Squadron trailing his battle cruisers by five nautical miles (9.3 km; 5.8 mi). At 14:15, Beatty ordered a turn North by East to rendezvous with the Grand Fleet. Shortly before the turn, one of his escorting light cruisers, Galatea spotted smoke on the horizon and continued on her course to investigate. At 14:32, Beatty ordered a course change to south-southeast in response to the spot report. S signallers were unable to read the signal and her Officer of the Watch presumed that it was the expected point zigzag to the left of the base course and signalled that course change to the rest of the squadron. After several minutes it became apparent that the squadron was not conforming to Beatty’s other ships, but Evan-Thomas refused to change course until clear instructions had been received despite entreaties from the Barham. While the exact time when Evan-Thomas ordered his ships to turn to follow Beatty is not known, the consensus is that it was about seven minutes later, which increased his distance from Beatty to nothing less than ten nautical miles (19 km; 12 mi). Hipper’s battlecruisers spotted the Battlecruiser Fleet to their west at 15:20, but Beatty’s ships did not see the Germans to their east until 15:30. Two minutes later, Beatty ordered a course change to east-southeast, positioning the British ships to cut off the German’s line of retreat, and signalled action stations. Hipper ordered his ships to turn to starboard, away from the British, to assume a south-easterly course, and reduced speed to 18 knots (33 km/h; 21 mph) to allow three light cruisers of the 2nd Scouting Group to catch up. With this turn, Hipper was falling back on the High Seas Fleet, 60 miles (97 km) behind him. Beatty then altered course to the east, as he was still too far north to cut Hipper off. This was later characterised as the “Run to the South” as Beatty changed course to steer east-southeast at 15:45, now paralleling Hipper’s course less than 18,000 yards (16,000 m) away. By this time the 5th Battle Squadron was about seven point five nautical miles (13.9 km; 8.6 mi) northwest of Beatty. The Germans opened fire first at 15:48, followed by the British battlecruisers. The light cruisers of the 2nd Scouting Group were the first German ships visible to Evan-Thomas’s ships and Barham opened fire on them at 15:58 until the cruisers disappeared into their own smoke screen at around 16:05. Von der Tann at a range of about 23,000 yards (21,000 m). Moltke , together with her sister Valiant. The shell struck just below the waterline and burst on impact with the belt armour. The impact was right on the joints between several armour plates and drove them inwards and destroyed part of the hull behind them. Between them, Barham and Valiant hit Moltke four times from 16:16 to 16:26, but only one of those hits can be attributed to Valiant. Two of the others detonated upon striking the waterline armour, but failed to penetrate. The impacts drove in the plates and fragments caused much flooding by damaging the surrounding structure. Barham was herself was struck twice during the “Run to the South”: the first was a 28.3-centimetre (11 in) shell from von der Tann that failed to do any damage when it hit the waterline armour and the battlecruiser S. Lutzow fired a 30.5-centimetre (12 in) shell that detonated in the aft superstructure. This sent splinters in every direction and started a small fire, but otherwise did no significant damage. At 16:30, the light cruiser Southampton, scouting in front of Beatty’s ships, spotted the lead elements of the High Seas Fleet coming north at top speed. Three minutes later, she sighted the topmasts of Vice-Admiral Scheers battleships, but did not report this for another five minutes. Beatty continued south for another two minutes to confirm the sighting before ordering his force to turn north, towards the Grand Fleet in what came to be known as the “Run to the North”. His order only applied to his own forces; the 5th Battle Squadron continued south until after it passed Beatty heading northwestwards at 16:51. Beatty then ordered Evan-Thomas to turn his ships in succession to follow the battlecruisers three minutes later. This meant that they were some 4,000 yards (3,700 m) closer to the rapidly advancing High Sea Fleet. And now within range of the battleships of the 3rd Squadron which opened fire on the 5th Battle Squadron as they made their turn. Evan-Thomas continued his turn until his ships were steering due north, which interposed the 5th Battle Squadron between Hipper’s battlecruisers, which had reversed course around 16:48 to follow Beatty north, and Beatty’s ships. While making the turn, Barham was struck by two 30.5-centimetre shells beginning at 16:58, probably from the battlecruiser S. The detonation blew a 7-by-7-foot (2.1 by 2.1 m) hole in the main deck, sent fragments through the middle and lower decks and burned out the casemate for starboard No. Three minutes later another shell hit the aft superstructure, severing the antenna cables of the main wireless station. Seydlitz and Lützow between 17:06 and 17:13 while Barham was hit twice more by Derfflinger ; although neither of them did any significant damage. In contrast, the hit on Lützow flooded a 15-centimetre (5.9 in) magazine and the hits on Seydlitz blew a 10-by-13-foot (3.0 by 4.0 m) hole in the side of her bow. Other fragments from the second hit caused damage that allowed the water to spread even further. The third shell detonated on the face of the starboard wing turret, although some fragments entered the turret and caused minor damage. Beatty in the meantime had turned further west to open up the range between his battered battlecruisers and the Germans. At 17:45 he turned eastwards to take his position in front of the Grand Fleet and re-engage Hipper’s ships. This meant that the 5th Battle Squadron and the light cruisers were the sole targets available for the German ships until after his turn, although the worsening visibility hampered both sides’ shooting. Barham was not hit during this time and she and Valiant , later joined by their sister Warspite , continued to fire at Hipper’s 1st Scouting Group until 18:02 when Valiant lost sight of the Germans. They hit Lützow , Derfflinger and Seydlitz three times each between 17:19 and about 18:05. One of these hits also started several major fires inside the hull. The hits on Seydlitz mostly opened up more holes that facilitated the flooding. Hipper turned his ships southward around 18:05 to fall back upon Scheer’s advancing battleships and then reversed course five minutes later. Evan-Thomas turned northeast at around 18:06 and then made a slow turn to the southeast once he spotted the Grand Fleet. He first spotted the battleship. Flagship of the 6th Division of the 1st Battle Squadron and thought she was leading the Grand Fleet as it deployed from cruising formation into line ahead. At 18:17 he realised that. Was actually at the rear of the formation and he ordered a turn to the north to bring his squadron into line behind the Grand Fleet. This took some time and his ships had to slow down to 1218 knots (2233 km/h; 1421 mph) to avoid overrunning the 6th Division and blocking its fire. The 5th Battle Squadron concentrated their fire on the German battleships after losing sight of the battlecruisers, with Barham opening fire at 18:14. No hits were observed and the ships stopped firing after making their turn north, but Barham opened fire for a short time when they fell in line with the Grand Fleet a few minutes later, probably without making any hits. Barham fired 337 fifteen-inch shells and 25 six-inch shells during the battle. The number of hits cannot be confirmed, but it is believed that she and Valiant made 23 or 24 hits between them, making them two of the most accurate warships in the British fleet. She was hit six times during the battle, five times by 30.5 cm shells and once by a 28.3 cm shell, suffering casualties of 26 killed and 46 wounded.
