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. He was mobilised 11/1/1921 – 8/6/1921 to assist with the Miners Strike. The Royal Artillery records him as being discharged 27/10/1921.

Incredibly rare and beautifully kept’original’/’genuine’ WW2 Bronze Star Medal with Valour Device (USA) – with original Case and Ribbon. The Medal itself is well maintained and has been respectfully stored as a’collector item’ for many years now. The medal is’unnamed’, and in wonderful condition – cleaned and preserved regularly to prevent any discolouration over time (please see attached pictures). The’Bronze Star Medal’ (USA) is a United States Armed Forces decoration for either heroic achievement, heroic service, meritorious achievement or meritorious service in a combat zone. When the medal is awarded by the US Army and US Air Force for acts of valour in combat, the’V’ Device is authorised for wear on the medal (as displayed in the pictures). When the medal is awarded by the US Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard for acts of valour or meritorious service in combat, the combat’V’ is authorised for wear on the medal. Officers from other uniformed service of the USA are eligible to receive this award , as are foreign soldiers who have served with or alongside a service branch of the United States Armed Forces. The gallantry to earn the award must have taken place in action against an enemy of the United States of America; while in service with the US Armed Forces or while serving with friendly foreign forces in armed conflict against an opposing force in which the United States is not a belligerent party. The Bronze Star Medal with Valour Device is still awarded today for acts of gallantry in the face of the enemy, and remains an award of respect and recognised gallantry in action. The Bronze Star with’V’ Device is generally awarded so long a the gallant action does not justify the award of one of the next higher valour awards, such as the’Silver Star Medal’ (USA). This medal is in wonderful condition, and comes with genuine and original WW2 Ribbons, case and’V’ Devices. A Second World War Bronze Star Medal with’V’ Device is very rare, and would sit beautifully in a collection of similarity.
