Four brother’s family group medals and Memorial Plaques. A remarkable and extremely rare (probably unique being retained together) set of family medals. Come with supporting research material (1911 census record printout, CWGC printouts and extracts from the battalion war diaries of 1st/6th Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Regiment and the 1st Lancashire Regiment). 2599 Lance Corporal Philip Murphy, 6th Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Regiment (Sherwood Foresters). NOTE: 6th Battalion, Sherwood Foresters, was a volunteer unit of Britain’s Territorial Army. (First raised as The High Peak Rifles, in the High Peak area of Derbyshire in 1860), it fought as infantry on the Western Front during World War I. Attached as 43090 Lance Corporal to 1st Battalion, Lincolnshire Regiment. Died of wounds in France 26th September 1916. At Flers-Courcelette or Morval. In 1916 1st Lincolnshire Regt were involved at. The Battle of Albert (Somme 1st-13th July). The Battle of Bazentin Ridge (Somme 14th July-17th July). The Battle of FlersCourcelette. The Battle of Morval (25th-28thSept). Born Lea, Kent, enlisted Whaley Bridge. (Census 1911 records birthplace as Lee, London). Buried in GROVE TOWN CEMETERY, MEAULTE, Somme, France. In September 1916, the 34th and 2/2nd London Casualty Clearing Stations were established at this point, known to the troops as Grove Town, to deal with casualties from the Somme battlefields. 2052 Private Walter Francis Joseph Murphy, 1st/6th Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Regiment (The Sherwood Foresters). Died of wounds aged 20 in France 3rd July 1916. These were received on the first day of the Somme offensive Battle of Albert when the 1/6th was part of the 46th Division which was ordered to attack the north side of the Gommecourt salient, on the northern flank of the Somme battlefield. On 1 July, 1/6th Bn of the Notts and Derbyshire Regt. Was in support behind the attacking battalions of 139th Bde. A and B Companies took up positions in the British 1st Support Line, with the battalion bombers and four brigade machine gun teams between them, and C and D Companies were in the 3rd Support Line with the runners and signallers between them. Because of the mud, they were late getting into position and were very tired by the time they arrived, carrying large quantities of equipment and ammunition. When the battalion attempted to move up after Zero hour (07.30), it found that the way was blocked by the carrying parties and last waves of the battalions in front, which had not been able to leave the British front line trench before the smokescreen cleared. Although their first waves had crossed No man’s land and got into the German front line, the ground behind them was now being swept by artillery and machine gun fire, and positions re-occupied by Germans coming out of deep dugouts that should have been dealt with by the later waves. It was not until 08.45 that A and B Companies of the 1/6th Bn attempted to cross No man’s land, and they were immediately stopped by very heavy casualties. The Commanding Officer, Lt-Col Goodman, called off his battalion’s attack. There was an attempt to restart the attack at 15.30, but the smoke barrage was inadequate and it was cancelled. The left-hand platoon did not receive the cancellation order in time, went’over the top’ and was cut down. The battalion lost 41 men killed or died of wounds received on 1 July 1916. Born at Lee, London – according to CWGC. Buried in WARLINCOURT HALTE BRITISH CEMETERY, SAULTY, Pas de Calais, France. The site of the cemetery was chosen in May 1916.

CD Rom First World War Medals 10.9 Million Medals 4.6. Million Soldiers

First World War Campaign Medals. 10.9 million medals 4.6 million soldiers. Complete on one fully searchable DVD-ROM. Commemorating the centenary of the outbreak of the Great War this exceptional CD-ROM lists arguably every British Army serviceman and woman who served their King and Country during the war to end all wars’. From the Recruiting Sergeant-Major with his single award of the British War Medal to the Victoria Cross hero, the soldier slaughtered on the first day of the Somme or the Nursing Sister, you will find their medal details recorded in full on this truly amazing disc. These records are the nearest we have to a full British Army Roll-call for the Great War. The series of campaign medals issued for the Great War offers the military genealogist a goldmine of information. Many entries give battalion details that enable specific War Diary research to be undertaken which can breathe life, and in some cases death, into an individual soldier’s record. The original documents are held by The National Archives, Kew, London under the reference WO329. They have now been digitised by the Naval & Military Press and published for the first time. This now allows examination of these important records without a trip to Kew to view the original printed Rolls. The Medal Rolls were not damaged by enemy bombing in the Second World War. For this reason these Rolls form the only more or less complete list of soldiers who, by the fact that they were eligible to receive a WW1 medal, can be considered to have participated in the First World War. The Medal Rolls were created as lists of those individuals entitled to one or more campaign medals and list individuals by the military unit they were serving with at the time of their entitlement. The information contained in the listings can provide an additional remark or detail for an individual soldier which was hitherto unknown. As with our Soldiers Died in the Great War disc, all fields of information are searchable, enabling an individual soldier to be located with ease without knowledge of his regiment or corps. The Medal Rolls were the source material for the Medal Index Cards. During transcription much information was omitted and many errors and corruptions of a soldier’s record were made. Therefore, the Medal Rolls present a more complete and accurate survey of a soldier’s military career. A certificate of medal entitlement, with an individual’s service details, complete with historical information and a photographic reproduction of the medal(s), will be available to print in colour. It was issued to those who served in France and Belgium between 5th August 1914 and 22nd November 1914. Recipients of this star who were under fire during the period were entitled to wear a bar, sanctioned in 1919, which was sewn onto the ribbon; this bar simply had the relevant qualifying dates on it. This award is incomplete without the British War Medal and Victory Medal, as these two awards were automatically issued to those with this star. 1914-15 Star This award is identical to the 1914 Star, except for the obverse centre, which has the date 1914-15′ instead of 1914′, and the two months are omitted. The 1914-15 award was issued to all those who served in a theatre of war between 5th August 1914 and 31st December 1915, except those who already qualified for the 1914 Star by virtue of their service with the British Expeditionary Force. British War Medal 1914-20 The basic qualification for the award was service in any of the three armed services, any Commonwealth or Imperial formation, or in certain recognised voluntary organisations. No clasps were issued, the medal applying to all theatres of war, including some categories of service in the United Kingdom. This award is usually found with the Victory Medal of 1914-18, but can be awarded singly. The medal was issued for some operations after the 1918 Armistice. Victory Medal 1914-19 This bronze medal was awarded to all those who received the 1914 or 1914-15 Star and to most of those who received the British War Medal of 1914-20; it could not be awarded alone. The main qualification for the award was any service in a theatre of war between 5th August 1914 and 11th November 1918. Those who were mentioned in dispatches between August 1914 and August 1920 wore a bronze oak leaf on the ribbon. Territorial Force War Medal 1914-19 To qualify for this medal, which was only issued in bronze, the recipient had to be a member of the TF on or before 30th September 1914, and had to have served outside the United Kingdom between 4th August 1914 and 11th November 1918. However, members of the TF who qualified for the 1914 or 1914-15 Stars were not eligible to receive the award, which was worn after the Victory Medal. Some 34,000 medals were issued, making it the scarcest campaign award for the First World War.
