Original WW1 Spring Offensive Military Medal (MM) and Pair, Middlesex R, Wounded

An original World War 1 Military Medal (MM), British War Medal and Victory Medal with lengths of original ribbon, named correctly to. MM – 14248 Sjt: W. BWM and Victory – G. The 20th Battalion was also known as the 20th (Shoreditch) Battalion. Surname on both BWM and Victory originally spelt’Reale’ with the final letter on both officially erased, nearly extremely fine. MM London Gazette 6 August 1918. Real attested for the Middlesex Regiment at Stoke Newington and served with the 20th (Shoreditch) Battalion during the Great War on the Western Front. He is referred to in the unit war diary under a page headed “Military Medals” at the end of March 1918 stating the MM was awarded for gallantry and devotion on the 21st – 26th March 1918. This period is known as the’Spring Offensive’ and was the last German push to win the war and in places the allied forces were pushed back to positions behind their 1915 and 1916 starting points before the advance stalled. As the advance caused several new salients the German line became too long to hold with the number of troops they had available. There are numerous pages devoted to the actions of late March in the war diary. During this period the unit were stationed at St. Leger, to the north of Bapaume and south east of Arras. It makes grim reading but it does appear that the 20th did not give up much ground, even though villages on their flanks were being taken by the enemy. Also awarded the MM during this period were three others, two of whom are reported as missing on the 9th April. Two of the three Officers decorated in this period were taken PoW on the 9th. The war diary suggests Sjt. Real was wounded on the 9th April 1918. Upon coming back into the line following the Offensive, the 20th found themselves in the hamlet of Fleurbaix, south west of Armentieres. The unit went into the front line on the night of the 5th/6th April, relieving the 12th Suffolks. A raid planned on the German lines commenced on the night of the 8th/9th April and was hit with a furious counter-attack from the Germans, following an SOS signal going up. The Battalion HQ was surrounded and outposts attacked from the rear. The CO and part of the HQ personnel managed to escape and set up a defensive line in a trench called City Road. A further retreat occurred in response to the German advance which was finally halted at Shaftesbury Avenue trench where the 20th met the 13th Yorks Regt. The following day the unit withdrew through Armentieres. The item “Original WW1 Spring Offensive Military Medal (MM) and Pair, Middlesex R, Wounded” is in sale since Thursday, August 27, 2020.

WW1 Australian Gallipoli 1st day lander medal trio to Private T. Whitear, 4th Battalion A. Who was most likely also a 1st day wounded casualty. 1914-15 Star, British War and Victory Medals, impressed named 400 PTE T. Rising sun collar badge. Comes with copies Australian Army service papers, copy embarkation roll & newspaper casualty list, unit diary April 1915, Passenger list 1911. Professionally glass framed and mounted display. Frame Size 54cm x 33cm. Items can be sent without frames at buyers request. Was born in Newton Abbot, Devon, England in 1888. He emigrated to New South Wales in 1911, his occupation was recorded as a miner. He enlisted on the 31/8/1914 to the 4th Battalion A. After only two months training, the battalion was among the first Australian units to be deployed overseas. Pte Whitear embarked on H. T Euripides on the 20/10/1914, arriving in Egypt 2/12/1914. After this the battalion undertook further training and took part in the defence of the Suez Canal before landing at ANZAC Cove 25th April 1915 as part of the 2nd & 3rd wave. Pte Whitear is listed on the embarkation roll as serving with E Coy, but B Coy on his casualty sheet. From there, evacuated 29/4/15 landing at Alexandria 1/5/1915 and sent to hospital at Ras El Tin. 4th Battalion casualties between 25 & noon 30th April: Officers 2 KIA 6 WIA. Other Ranks 26 KIA 89 WIA. Total 8 officers & 182 men. During the day the medical services were overwhelmed. The suffering of the wounded was pitiful; many men died on the beach, and it is estimated that hundreds more lay in the hills out of the reach of help. Most notably, there were inadequate arrangements for the critically wounded, who could not be taken back to the ships until after all the troops and stores had been landed. It was early evening before boats became available; many of the maimed and bleeding were sent off in filthy barges. No one knows for sure how many Australians died on the first day, perhaps 650. Total casualties, including wounded, must have been about 2,000. This news trickled in to the Australian newspapers. Even a month after the landing, only 350 deaths had been acknowledged. It is also said that two fell overboard and drowned. We list militaria and coins weekly. We provide quality mounted medals, badges and historical research.

Major Hadwick WW2 Africa Italy 1939-45 star GSM Palestine 1945-48 group. El Alamein 1942 – Afrika Corps Germans in Panzer IV surrender to British Tommies. The Headquarters (HQ) of 2nd AGRA was formed at the Scotch Corner Hotel, Darlington, on 24 August 1942 from elements of Headquarters RA, First Army. It was assigned to First Army for the landings in North Africa (Operation Torch), and first went into action in March 1943, supporting IX Corps in Tunisia. It was with V Corps by the end of the campaign in May 1943, and then prepared for the Allied invasion of Italy. Royal Field Artillery North Africa – anti tank gun 2nd Field Regiment Royal Artillery The make-up of an AGRA during the Italian Campaign was extremely flexible: it could include army field regiments (25-pounders), medium regiments (4.5-inch or 5.5-inch guns) and heavy regiments (7.2-inch howitzers). It might also be augmented with 3.7-inch heavy anti-aircraft (HAA) guns loaned by the AA brigades for additional ground support fire. 2nd AGRA landed at Salerno in Italy with X Corps soon after the assault landings (Operation Avalanche) on 9 September 1943. 12th AA Brigade was responsible for the AA defence of the beachhead, and its HAA guns had also been firing in support of the infantry divisions during the first few days before 2nd AGRA arrived. When the break-out from the beachhead got under way on 18 September, 12th AA Bde provided a Light AA battery to protect 2nd AGRA’s medium gun areas around Mango. 2nd AGRA then supported X Corps in its advance to Naples and the crossing of the River Volturno. In the advance beyond the Voluturno it was reinforced by 214 (Southsea) Battery from 57th (Wessex) HAA Regiment, to fire in the medium role and the followed the advance in the HAA role. Scammell Pioneer tractor towing a 7.2-inch howitzer of 56th Heavy Regiment round a tight corner in Italy, 23 December 1943. The utility of the 3.7-inch gun for medium artillery work, and the declining threat from the Luftwaffe, meant that HAA units were increasingly used in the ground fire role. Despite the confusion in titles, 2nd AA Brigade actually operated as’2nd AGRA (AA)’ in the later stages of the campaign. In December 1943 2nd AGRA fired in support of 201st Guards Brigade’s attack up’Bare Arse Ridge’ on 6 November during the during the Battle of Monte Camino. Monte Cassino 1944 It supported 56th (London) Infantry Division of X Corps during the assault crossing of the Garigliano in January 1944, In February 1944, 2nd AGRA was sent with three field and five medium regiments to support the New Zealand Corps in operations against Monte Cassino (Captain Hadwick wounded February 1944). By late May, 2nd AGRA was supporting X Corps’ advance after Operation Diadem had broken through the German Winter Line, and in the subsequent pursuit to Lake Trasimeno and advance to Florence, with the following order of battle. It continued with X Corps during Operation Olive to breach the Gothic Line in August, and was with II Polish Corps in October. For the Allied Spring 1945 offensive in Italy (Operation Grapeshot), 2nd AGRA supported V Corps with five medium regiments 56th Heavy Rgt having been transferred to 21st Army Group in Belgium by that stage. At the end of the war HQ 2nd AGRA appears to have been redesignated HQ 180th Infantry Brigade in the Central Mediterranean Force. British troops in Palestine 1945-48 In November 1947, the United Nations recommended the partition of Palestine and the establishment of Arab and Jewish States. On 15 May 1948, Britain gave up her mandate. The British Army departed from Palestine leaving the Jews and the Arabs to fight it out in the war that followed. The campaign had cost 338 British lives. The clasp Palestine 1945-48 was added to the General Service Medal and awarded to soldiers who served in Palestine between 27 September 1945 (the date a state of emergency was declared) and 30 June 1948 (when the last British troops departed).
