E, see pictures for condition. Scarce Brigadier George F Charles CBE WW1 WW2 medals RAMC Dentist & ANZACS & RAF. Very scarce WW1 & 2 Military C. E medal group Brigadier Dental Corps RAMC. London Gazette 14 June 1945. The Original Recommendation states: Colonel Charles has administered the Army Dental Services in Scottish Command for over three years. To his organising ability and wide experience, coupled with energy and enthusiasm, are due the excellent dental arrangements in the Command. During the mobilisation and special training of the large forces for overseas many dental problems arose and were successfully overcome under his supervision. In short, the high standard of dental fitness of all troops in and leaving the Command is undoubtedly due to his zeal and efficiency – attributes which have inspired all his officers and men in their work in the common cause. George Frederick Charles was born in 24th February 1891, Heywood, Lancashire and joined the Army Dental Corps (arm of RAMC) as Temporary Lieutenant in September 1915. He married Dorothy Bailey December 1916, in Builth, Breconshire, mid Wales. He served as a Dental Officer during the Great War on the Western Front , France from 8 October 1915, later serving in the ANZACS 11th Battalion Australian Infantry from 11 July 1918. THE HUNDRED DAYS OFFENSIVE-ANZACS 11TH Battalion-all out war. British Troops advance Around this time, a small group of US soldiers was attached to the 11th Battalion to gain experience. The following month, the battalion captured Gerbedoen Farm before supporting the 10th Battalion’s successful attack on Merris. On 8 August, the Allies launched their own offensive, known as the Hundred Days Offensive, around Amiens. The 11th Battalion did not take part in the opening phase of the offensive, moving to Hamel and establishing themselves in a defensive position around Harbonnieres. On 10 August, the battalion was committed to a strong attack around Lihons; although successful, the attack lasted three days and resulted in heavy casualties, including 58 killed and 140 wounded. On the night of 12/13 August, the 11th was withdrawn to the support line just behind the front. WW1 British Tank Later, they were moved to Vaire and then Cerisy, before supporting the 9th and 12th Battalions around Chuignolles and Proyart on 23 August and then around Chuignes and Cappy two days later, where further losses were experienced. The 11th Battalion’s final attack came against the Hindenburg Outpost Line on 18 September when they launched a three-company attack around Fervaque Farm and Carpeza Copse near Villeret. Despite being severely understrength each company had an average strength of just 76 men they advanced over 3,000 yards (2,700 m) and took over 120 prisoners and large quantities of German equipment, for the loss of 18 men killed. WW1 German and Allied Fighters in dog fight over western front Further casualties came on 24 October when German aircraft attacked the battalion headquarters, killing a number of officers, including Darnell, who was the acting commanding officer. The heavy casualties that the Australians had suffered during the final year of the war, and the decrease in volunteers arriving from Australia, meant that the battalion was desperately understrength. Germans Surrender In October, they were withdrawn from the line for rest and reorganisation, at the insistence of the Australian prime minister, Billy Hughes. At this time, the battalion was reorganised into a two-company structure. In early November, the battalion prepared to return to the front around St. Quentin, but before they could return to the fighting, an armistice came into effect, bringing the war to an end Captain Charles just after end of WW1 transferred to the Royal Air Force Dental Service in 1919. He reverted back to the Army Dental Corps two years later, with whom he held various appointments between the wars. Advanced Colonel on 1 July 1939, he embarked for France as Deputy Director Dental Services with Medical HQ and Staff of the British Expeditionary Force on 10 September 1939. German Panzers advance – ” Blitzkreig”, Summer 1940, France He formed two additional Dental units at Boulogne and Dieppe but these were rapidly overrun by the German attack in the summer of 1940. He retired on 16 August 1946, died in the village of “Battle”, Sussex 1957 aged 66. Auctiva gets you noticed! Track Page Views With. Auctiva’s FREE Counter.

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.

A very interesting WW1 Military medal grouping, awarded to a medic in the 134th field ambulance, Royal Army Medical Corps. Charles Henrey Searle was born in Dawlish, 1878 and at a young age moved to Exeter. In 1911 he resided in 29 Stuart Road, Heavitree, Exeter with his wife and three children (two girls and a boy). Searle was a printer machinist for the nespaper”Exeter Flying Post”. Newspaper article: Western times 07/09/1917.’Military Medal for Heavltree Man Mrs. Stuart-road, Heavitree, received a letter yesterday from his commanding officer intimating that her husband, Sergt. Had been awarded the Military Medal for gallant conduct and devotion to duty. What special act was that won for Sergt. Searle this distinction was not stated, either by the O. Or the winner himself in a letter received at the same time, in which the honour was also mentioned. Searle, who was born at Dawlish, came to Exeter an early age. And for 20 years was employed machinist at the office of the late Exeter Flying Post. He left that employment March 1st to join the and three weeks later received his first stripe, the second coming seven weeks later, and the third three months after, while training on Salisbury Plain. Going across the Channel, he reverted corporal, but three months had been restored to his earlier rank, and since being awarded the Military Medal has been made staff-sergeant, an excellent record. Will be interesting recall incident which occurred three months after Sergt. With others, he proceeded a spot where there were many wounded men. One by one his companions collapsed, but Sergt. Searle stuck to his post for nine days and nights Lack rest and sleep then told its tale, and he also collapsed, and a relief party carried himthe last of the original contingentto the rear, where, happily, speedily recovered. Sgt Searle was awarded the M. M for Gallantry, mentioned in the London Gazette on October 17, 1917. Mentioned in the Edinburgh gazette 22 October, 1917. Searle most likely joined the R. C, trained at salisbury plains with a field ambulance and upon travelling overseas to France and Flanders was sent into the 39th division, being drafted into the 134th field ambulance. 134th at this time were suffering heavy casualties as a result of the battle of Messines (June, 1917) and required reinforcements. Shortly after this the 134th field ambulance were present at the battle of Pilckem Ridge and the duration of the third battle of Ypres (Passhendaele, 1917). This would have been around the same time that Searle is mentioned on the letter and subsequently recieving the M. M for gallant conduct and devotion to duty. The event Searle is mentioned in the letter to his wife is a near citation for his M. Searle would have earned the Military medal for gallant conduct at the battle of Passhendaele with the 134th field ambulance. Another member of the 134 F. A recieved a M. M for the battle of Picklem Ridge (Passendaele) for dressing and bringing in wounded. He is gazzeted at the same time as Searle was (Edinburgh Gazette 22October, 1917). A very interesting medal group, the 134th field ambulance aren’t known for recieving a lot of gallantry in France and Flanders. Medals are all correctly impressed. M – 74443 SJT C. SEARLE 134 / F.
