WW2 Royal Navy Long Service Group of Five Medals, Battle for Malta where he served at the HMS St. Malta and the Gunnery emplacements at HMS St. Angelo (a castle guarding the deep water harbour vital to the Allies) was one of the heaviest bombed places by the Nazi war machine, desperate to capture the island, and if not bomb it into dust as it was key to the North African Battles and the attacks the allies made on Italy. Please note two-thirds of the Royal Navy Personal serving at HMS St. Angelo during WW2 were killed in action by the bombing, so GHA Lee is a very lucky and very brave man who stayed in the Navy after the War. This Group of five comprises. All unnamed as issued and a King George VI R. Long Service and Good Conduct Medal named to M. Lee SCPO HMS St Angelo. These are mounted as worn with accompanying miniatures and miniature ribbon bar. After service in the Second World War Gordon Lee established a successful career in the Royal Navy, a temporarily Commissioned Stores Officer from 26th May 1945. He ended his career with the rank of Lieutenant Commander. He is the only person to have survived the battle of Malta and gone from non commissioned to higher commissioned Royal Navy Officer, a unique person with an incredible story to tell. Is a bastioned fort in Malta, located at the centre of the Grand Harbour. It was originally built in the medieval period as a castle, and then was rebuilt by the Order of Saint John as a bastioned fort called Fort Saint Angelo between the 1530s and the 1560s. It is best known for its role as the Order’s headquarters during the Great Siege of Malta of 1565. A major reconstruction to designs of fort took place in the 1690s, giving the fort its current appearance, the fort was eventually garrisoned by the British from 1800 to 1979, at times being classified as a stone frigate known as. The fort suffered considerable damage during World War II, but it was later restored. It was fitted during WW2 with the. Often referred to simply as the. It was one of the most popular medium-weight anti-aircraft systems during World War 2 used by most of the western Allies and the only real defence against the bombing of Malta. Mr Lee would have commanded such a gun with a crew during bombing raids which happened several times a day at its height. See images for pictures of the gun and of Malta during WW2.

This is an original 1939-45 Australian Service Medal correctly impressed and named to V47245 Maj. Below is some details about Maj. EA Drake-Brockman and his WW1 and WW2 military service but in civilian life he was a politician and later, a judge of the Federal Arbitration Court. This is a rare opportunity to own an original issued medal belonging to one of Australia’s great soldiers and elder statesmen. Edmund Alfred Drake-Brockman served initially on Gallipoli as a major in the 11th Battalion landing on 25th April 2015. He is mentioned in Charles Bean’s. The following is an excerpt from a book I’m writing about family members who served in military service.. On 25 August 1914, Drake-Brockman was appointed to the Australian Infantry Force as a Major in the 11th Infantry Battalion, the Western Australian battalion of the 1st Division. On 25 April 1915, he was in the second tow of the battalion, landing at Gallipoli about 200 metres north of Ari Burnu shortly before dawn. He immediately climbed Ari Burnu to Plugge’s Plateau. As he reached the summit, three Turks sprang up and made for him. One of his men killed all three. From here Drake-Brockman directed the men arriving from the beach, sending the 9th Battalion to the right and the 10th to the centre, while retaining the men of the 11th with him on the left. Ordered by Colonel E. Sinclair-MacLagan to place troops on Baby 700, Drake-Brockman moved forward to Russell’s Top. From there he discovered that the maps they had were wrong and the magnitude of the task and committed his own company to it. Shortly after noon, he moved to MacLaurin’s Hill, where he was in command until the arrival of Lieutenant Colonel R. Owen of the 3rd Battalion later in the day. On 15 July 1915, Drake-Brockman was seriously wounded receiving a gunshot to the back causing a serious injury to his upper left chest and another gunshot wound to his upper right thigh. He was evacuated to Malta, and then invalided home to Australia in October. For his services at Gallipoli, he was awarded a Companion of the Order of Saint Michael and Saint George (CMG). Pope who had been appointed to command a brigade. Drake-Brockman commanded the battalion at Pozieres in August 1916, Mouquet Farm in September 1916 and Bullecourt in April 1917. In all of these battles, the 16th suffered heavy casualties. For his services in command of the 16th Battalion, he was awarded the Distinguished Service Order (DSO), which he received from the King George V of England at Buckingham Palace in June 1919. On 9 October 1917, he was appointed to command the 4th Training Battalion, the training unit of the 4th Brigade, of which the 16th Battalion was part. In February 1918, Drake-Brockman resumed command of the 16th Battalion, leading it at Hebuterne in April 1918, Hamel in July 1918 and Amiens in August 1918. On 5 October 1918, he was promoted to Colonel and temporary Brigadier General and took over command of the 4th Brigade from Brigadier General C. During his service in WW1 he was Mentioned in Dispatches six times and in. 1914-15 Star, the 1915-19 War medal and the Victory Medal or what is commonly referred to as the WW1 Trio. He was also awarded the following medals. Companion of the Order of Bath (CB). Companion of St Michael and St George (CMG). Distinguished Service Order (DSO). WW1 Colonial Auxiliary Forces Officers Decoration. WW1 Colonial Auxiliary Forces Officers LSGC medal; and. The Order of Danilo 4th Class. After WW1 he commanded the 4th Infantry Brigade from 1 May 1921 to 30 April 1926. He was Aide de Camp to the Governor General from 1 July 1931 to 30 June 1935. Promoted to Brigadier on 1 June 1937, he took command of the 3rd Division, succeeding Major General T. He was promoted to Major General on 1 July 1937, only the fourth militia officer to be promoted to that rank in the decade before the Second World War. He remained in command of the 3rd Division until he retired from the Army on 7 January 1942. WW1 16th Battalion AIF Commanding Officer. WW2 Taking the Salute – Anzac Day, Melbourne.
