The superb Great War Battle of Arras 24th April 1917 Trench Raid Bangalore Torpedo Detachment mans Military Medal group awarded to Sapper S. Kemp, Royal Engineers, who as a member of the 519th London Field Company Bangalore Torpedo detachment which accompanied a trench raid made on 24th April 1917, and showed an utter disregard for his personal safety, when he went forward under a heavy fire to relight a Bangalore torpedo which had failed to explode, and which was needed to be blown for the third belt of barbed wire to be breached in order to allow the trench raiders to access the enemy trenches. This they duly did, all as a result of Kemps gallantry in having gone forward to relight the fuse over a distance of 15 yards under hot fire and close range. Group of 4: Military Medal, GVR bust; 556195 SAPR S. ; British War Medal and Victory Medal; 2826 SPR. Mounted swing style as worn. Condition: Good Very Fine. Together with the recipients tunic medal ribbon bar for the same. Rare Military Medalists League enamelled lapel badge. GVIR wire bullion sleeve patch. And two facsimile recommendations for his award of the Military Medal. Sidney James Kemp came from northwest London and saw service during the Great War as a Sapper No. 556195 with the Royal Engineers, and as a member of the 519th London Field Company was present out on the Western Front when he won the Military Medal for bravery in the field in the London Gazette for 12th December 1917, the award having been earned on 24th April 1917 during the Battle of Arras, and originally recorded in the 60th Divisional Engineers Routine Orders of 14th September 1917, it being for his work when with a detachment of men operating the Bangalore torpedo during a trench raid. The original recommendation reads as follows: No. 556195 Sapper Sidney James Kemp, 519 (London) Field Company. This man formed one of the RE party which took part in a trench raid on the 24th April 1917, and accompanied the centre infantry detachment in charge of the Bangalore torpedoes. When this detachment advanced, it was found that the third belt of wire had not been cut. This man accordingly came up with a Bangalore torpedo party and assisted in laying the torpedo against the enemys wire under a hot fire at close range. At the first attempt it failed to explode and consequently this man who had gone back some 15 yards again came forward and lighted the fuse thereby causing the torpedo to explode and destroy the wire, thus enabling the detachment to enter the enemys trenches. This man showed an utter disregard for his personal safety, and acted with great courage and determination. Kemp, who became a member of the Military Medallists League, appears to gone on to see service during the Second World War in Civil Defence work.

Camp Superintendant The Iron Cross (German: Eisernes Kreuz) was a military decoration of the Kingdom of Prussia, and later of Germany, which was established by King Friedrich Wilhelm III of Prussia and first awarded on 10 March 1813 in Breslau. In addition to during the Napoleonic Wars, the Iron Cross was awarded during the Franco-German War, the First World War, and the Second World War. The Iron Cross was normally a military decoration only, though there were instances of it being awarded to civilians for performing military functions. Two examples, the civilian pilot Hanna Reitsch was awarded the Iron Cross First Class for her bravery as a test pilot during the Second World War and Melitta Schenk Gräfin von Stauffenberg (also a German female test pilot) was awarded the Iron Cross Second Class. The Iron Cross was also used as the symbol of the German Army from 1871 to 1915, when it was replaced by a simpler Greek cross. In 1956, the Iron Cross became the symbol of the Bundeswehr, the German armed forces. The traditional design is black and this design is used on armored vehicles and aircraft. A newer design in blue and silver is used as the emblem in other contexts. The Iron Cross is a black four-pointed cross with white trim, with the arms widening towards the ends, similar to a cross pattée. It was designed by the neoclassical architect Karl Friedrich Schinkel and reflects the cross borne by the Teutonic Knights in the 14th century. The ribbon for the 1813, 1870 and 1914 Iron Cross (2nd Class) was black with two thin white bands, the colours of Prussia. The noncombatant version of this award had the same medal, but the black and white colours on the ribbon were reversed. Initially the Iron Cross was worn with the blank side out. This did not change until 1838 when the sprig facing could be presented. Since the Iron Cross was issued over several different periods of German history, it was annotated with the year indicating the era in which it was issued. For example, an Iron Cross from the First World War bears the year “1914″, while the same decoration from the Second World War is annotated “1939″. The reverse of the 1870, 1914 and 1939 series of Iron Crosses have the year “1813″ appearing on the lower arm, symbolizing the year the award was created. The 1813 decoration also has the initials “FW” for King Frederick William III, while the next two have a “W” for the respective kaisers, Wilhelm I and Wilhelm II. The final version shows a swastika. It was also possible for a holder of the 1914 Iron Cross to be awarded a second or higher grade of the 1939 Iron Cross. In such cases, a “1939 Clasp” (Spange) would be worn on the original 1914 Iron Cross. A similar award was made in 1914 but was quite rare, since there were few in service who held the 1870 Iron Cross. For the First Class award the Spange appears as an eagle with the date “1939″ that was pinned above the Cross. Although two separate awards, in some cases the holders soldered them together. A cross was the symbol of the Teutonic Knights (a heraldic cross pattée), and the cross design (but not the specific decoration) has been the symbol of Germany’s armed forces (now the Bundeswehr) since 1871. The Iron Cross was founded on 10 March 1813 in Breslau and awarded to soldiers during the Wars of Liberation against Napoleon. It was first awarded to Karl August Ferdinand von Borcke on 21 April 1813. King Wilhelm I of Prussia authorized further awards on 19 July 1870, during the Franco-German War. The Iron Cross was reauthorized by Emperor Wilhelm II on 5 August 1914, at the start of the First World War. During these three periods, the Iron Cross was an award of the Kingdom of Prussia, although given Prussia’s pre-eminent place in the German Empire formed in 1871, it tended to be treated as a generic German decoration. The 1813, 1870, and 1914 Iron Crosses had three grades: Iron Cross 2nd Class German: Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse, Iron Cross 1st Class German: Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse, Grand Cross of the Iron Cross (German: Großkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes, often simply Großkreuz). Although the medals of each class were identical, the manner in which each was worn differed. Employing a pin or screw posts on the back of the medal, the Iron Cross First Class was worn on the left side of the recipient’s uniform. The Grand Cross and the Iron Cross Second Class were suspended from different ribbons. The Grand Cross was intended for senior generals of the German Army. An even higher decoration, the Star of the Grand Cross of the Iron Cross, was awarded only twice, to Field Marshal Gebhard von Blücher in 1813 and to Field Marshal Paul von Hindenburg in 1918. A third award was planned for the most successful German general during the Second World War, but was not made after the defeat of Germany in 1945. The Iron Cross 1st Class and the Iron Cross 2nd Class were awarded without regard to rank. One had to already possess the 2nd Class in order to receive the 1st Class (though in some cases both could be awarded simultaneously). The egalitarian nature of this award contrasted with those of most other German states (and indeed many other European monarchies), where military decorations were awarded based on the rank of the recipient. For example, Bavarian officers received various grades of that Kingdom’s Military Merit Order (Militär-Verdienstorden), while enlisted men received various grades of the Military Merit Cross (Militär-Verdienstkreuz). Prussia did have other orders and medals which were awarded on the basis of rank, and even though the Iron Cross was intended to be awarded without regard to rank, officers and NCOs were more likely to receive it than junior enlisted soldiers. In the First World War, approximately four million Iron Crosses of the lower grade (2nd Class) were issued, as well as around 145,000 of the higher grade (1st Class). Exact numbers of awards are not known, since the Prussian archives were destroyed during the Second World War. The multitude of awards reduced the status and reputation of the decoration. Among the holders of the 1914 Iron Cross 2nd Class and 1st Class was Adolf Hitler, who held the rank of Gefreiter. Hitler can be seen wearing the award on his left breast, as was standard, in many photographs. Adolf Hitler restored the Iron Cross in 1939 as a German decoration (rather than Prussian as in earlier versions), continuing the tradition of issuing it in various grades. Legally it is based on the enactment Reichsgesetzblatt I S. 1573 of 1 September 1939 Verordnung über die Erneuerung des Eisernen Kreuzes (Regulation for the Re-introduction of the Iron Cross). The Iron Cross of the Second World War was divided into three main series of decorations with an intermediate category, the Knight’s Cross, instituted between the lowest, the Iron Cross, and the highest, the Grand Cross. The Knight’s Cross replaced the Prussian Pour le Mérite or “Blue Max”. Hitler did not care for the Pour le Mérite, as it was a Prussian order that could be awarded only to officers. The ribbon of the medal (2nd class and Knight’s Cross) was different from the earlier Iron Crosses in that the color red was used in addition to the traditional black and white (black and white were the colours of Prussia, while black, white, and red were the colors of Germany). Hitler also created the War Merit Cross as a replacement for the non-combatant version of the Iron Cross. It also appeared on certain Nazi flags in the upper left corner. The edges were curved, like most original iron crosses. The standard 1939 Iron Cross was issued in the following two grades: Iron Cross 2nd Class Eisernes Kreuz 2. Klasse, Iron Cross 1st Class Eisernes Kreuz 1. Klasse abbreviated as EKI or E. The Iron Cross was awarded for bravery in battle as well as other military contributions in a battlefield environment. The Iron Cross 2nd Class came with a ribbon and was worn in one of two different methods: when in formal dress, the entire cross was worn mounted alone or as part of a medal bar, for everyday wear, only the ribbon was worn from the second hole in the tunic button. The Iron Cross First Class was a pin-on medal with no ribbon and was worn centered on a uniform breast pocket, either on dress uniforms or everyday outfit. It was a progressive award, with the second class having to be earned before the first class and so on for the higher degrees. It is estimated that some four and a half million Second Class Iron Crosses were awarded in the Second World War, and 300,000 of the First Class#. Two Iron Cross First Class recipients were women, one of whom was test pilot Hanna Reitsch. One of the Muslim SS members to receive the award was SS Obersturmführer Imam Halim Malko, and was granted the Iron Cross (Second Class) in October 1943 for his role in suppressing the Villefranche-de-Rouergue mutiny. He and several other Bosnian Muslims were decorated with the EK. II personally by Himmler in the days after the mutiny. Interestingly, he would only wear the ribbon, and not the cross itself because of his faith. The Knight’s Cross of the Iron Cross (Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes, often simply Ritterkreuz) recognized extreme battlefield bravery or successful leadership. The Knight’s Cross was divided into five degrees: Knight’s Cross (Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes), Knight’s Cross with Oak Leaves (mit Eichenlaub), Knight’s Cross with Oak Leaves and Swords (mit Eichenlaub und Schwertern), Knight’s Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords, and Diamonds (mit Eichenlaub, Schwertern und Brillanten), Knight’s Cross with Golden Oak Leaves, Swords, and Diamonds (mit Goldenem Eichenlaub, Schwertern und Brillanten). In total, 7,313 awards of the Knight’s Cross were made. Only 883 received the Oak Leaves; 160 both the Oak Leaves and Swords including Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto (posthumously); 27 with Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds; and one with the Golden Oak Leaves, Swords, and Diamonds (Oberst Hans-Ulrich Rudel). Recipients of the Knight’s Cross with Oak Leaves, Swords, and Diamonds: (pilots) Colonel (Oberst) Werner Mölders (15 July 1941), Lieutenant General (Generalleutnant) Adolf Galland (28 February 1942), Colonel (Oberst) Gordon M. Gollob (3 August 1942), Captain (Hauptmann) Hans-Joachim Marseille (3 September 1942), Colonel (Oberst) Helmut Lent (7 July 1944), Major Heinz-Wolfgang Schnaufer (14 October 1944), Major Walter Nowotny (19 October 1943), Colonel (Oberst) Hans-Ulrich Rudel (Diamonds: 29 March 1944, Golden Oak Leaves: 1 January 1945), Major Erich Hartmann (8 August 1944), Colonel (Oberst) Hermann Graf (16 September 1942). Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring never held the Diamonds. He, being one of the first soldiers presented with the Knight’s Cross in 1939, was presented with the Grand Cross of the Iron Cross in 1940. Submarine captains of the German Navy (Kriegsmarine): Captain (Kapitän zur See) Wolfgang Lüth (11 August 1943), Commander (Fregattenkapitän) Albrecht Brandi (21 November 1944). General Field Marshals (Generalfeldmarschälle): Erwin Rommel (11 March 1943), Albert Kesselring (19 July 1944), Walter Model (17 August 1944), Ferdinand Schörner (1 January 1945). Generals and state officials: Brig. General (Generalmajor) Adelbert Schulz (9 January 1944), Waffen-SS Lt. General (SS-Obergruppenführer) Herbert Otto Gille (19 September 1944), Waffen-SS Brig. General (SS-Brigadeführer) Sylvester Stadler (6 May 1945), Lt. General (General der Fallschirmtruppe) Hermann-Bernhard Ramcke (19 September 1944), Maj. General (Generalleutnant) Theodor Tolsdorff (18 March 1945), Maj. Karl Mauss, DDS (15 April 1945), Lt. General (General der Panzertruppe) Dietrich von Saucken (8 May 1945), Lt. General (General der Panzertruppe) Hermann Balck (31 August 1944), Lt. General (General der Panzertruppe) Hasso von Manteuffel (18 February 1945), Maj. General (Generalleutnant) Hyazinth Graf Strachwitz (15 April 1944), Waffen-SS General (SS-Oberstgruppenführer) Sepp Dietrich (6 August 1944), General (Generaloberst) Hans-Valentin Hube (20 April 1944). Like the Knight’s Cross, the Grand Cross (Großkreuz) was also worn suspended from the collar. The only recipient of the Grand Cross during the Second World War was Reichsmarschall, or “Reich Marshal of the Greater German Reich, ” Hermann Göring, who was awarded the decoration on 19 July 1940. The medal is in effect an oversized Knight’s Cross. It had the same overall characteristics as the Knights Cross but was much larger, measuring 63 mm (2.5 in) wide as opposed to about 44 mm (1.7 in) for the Iron Cross and 48.5 mm (1.9 in) for the Knight’s Cross. It was originally intended to have outer edges lined in gold, but this was changed to silver before the award was presented. The Grand Cross was worn with a 57 mm (2.2 in)-wide ribbon bearing the same colours as the Knights Cross and 2nd Class ribbons. The award case was in red leather with the eagle and the swastika outlined in gold. The Grand Cross was not a bravery award. It was reserved solely for General Staff officers for “the most outstanding strategic decisions affecting the course of the war”. Göring received the Grand Cross for his command of the Luftwaffe during the successful 1940 campaigns against France, Belgium, and the Netherlands (at the same time as he was promoted to Reichsmarschall of the Greater German Reich). The original Grand Cross that was presented to Göring (personally by Hitler) was destroyed during an air raid on his Berlin home. Göring had extra copies made, one of them with a platinum frame that he was wearing at the time of his surrender to the allies in 1945. Several times in official photographs, Göring can be seen wearing his Pour le Mérite, Knights Cross, and Grand Cross around his neck at the same time. The Star of the Grand Cross of the Iron Cross (also called Iron Cross with Golden Rays) was meant to be worn like the Iron Cross First class (pinned to the breast). Like the Grand Cross of the Iron Cross, this award was not intended to be bestowed for bravery. Rather, it was bestowed upon the most successful General officer at the conclusion of a war. The first Star of the Grand Cross was presented to Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher for defeating Napoleon in the Battle of Waterloo, 1815. That medal is called the Blücherstern (Blücher’s Star). The second version of the Star of the Grand Cross of the Iron Cross was presented to Paul von Hindenburg for the German victories over the British in the German offensives in March and April 1918. A Star of the Grand Cross of the Iron Cross was manufactured for the Second World War, but it was never awarded. The only known example was found by Allied occupation forces at the end of the war, and was eventually added to the West Point military collection. It is generally believed that Reichsmarschall Göring was the intended eventual recipient. The design was based on the 1914 version of the Star of the Grand Cross, but with the 1939 Iron Cross as the centerpiece. German law prohibits the wearing of a swastika, so 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).

I have been collecting WW1 & WW2 militaria for over 25 years and have collected cabinets full and piles of items from small to large! I have a few of these WW1 trench/duck boards and its time to sell one off. So here is what I call a’junk’ example, it really was made from scrap wood, anyone who tells you that these were all made to a specific size and plan hasn’t a clue what they are talking about! I have seen plenty of originals to tell that they are all slightly different. Mainly as they are made by thousands of different men, from different units, given different tools and supplied with different batches of wood. Resulting in various different styles as can clearly be seen when you examine multiple photographs closely. As you can see some of the boards are made from two pieces of thinner wood nailed together into the supports, some are like this and some aren’t, using what ever was to hand, as nobody then knew that these would be desirable and they sure as hell were not made to last 100 years! Even the support beams are made from multiple pieces of wood, despite this being one of the most crudely made examples I have, it is certainly one of the sturdiest! It won’t take herds of people running over it, but it will display really nicely if you have the room! It is the height of those IKEA display cabinets that almost all collectors have, so easy to put next to, or even behind depending on what you have displayed inside. If you have any questions I will try and answer them. Collecting in person would of course be easiest and probably cheapest, however not if you live miles away. However, you are more than welcome to organise your own courier or for someone to collect them from me. I can be around any day of the week or weekend and at any time and can wait all day if necessary. The item when wrapped in bubble wrap and surely bound up in brown tape will measure 202cm x 54cm x 15cm and weight somewhere around 10kg, maybe a little less, most couriers only want an estimate, maybe a little less. Its big, heavy and awkward! I do have some other examples of these that are really tatty and have suffered over the years from rot in places before I got hold them. I will list them separately, but will price them per plank and will cut them into manageable pieces and dispose of all the rotten bits. If interested in any small pieces then please see my other listings.

The MAKE OFFER function is available on the watch, please use it. This is a stunning Black Coloured Porcelain Dial WW1 Trench watch but it is historically important due to the fantastic engraving that the watch carries… A true historical artefact. This is a very special watch indeed and was awarded to a very special guy… This watch was presented to Private HW Barker, York and Lancaster Regiment, who was awarded the DCM for repairing telephone lines under fire at the battle of Asiago. For conspicuous gallantry under intense enemy barrage while working continuously on a main telephone line which had been cut to pieces. The two men assisting him were killed one after the other, but Private Barker stuck to his job and put the line through alone. Upon his return he immediately volunteered to go out through a barrage and mend another line, though he had nothing to eat for 15 hours. His absolute disregard of danger and his devotion to duty were magnificent. The hands are awesome which with the numerals carry some of the original luminous paint. The dial is beautifully black and in great shape. The crown is the original Pumpkin crown. The movement which is running well and keeping time is unsigned, however is a Fontainmelon movement. Is it wearable, oh YES this is a watch made for wearing and will catch the eye of many as your arm rests on the bar of your local pub.
