17301 WWI MILITARY SERVICE: Private Ernest Septimus Flack of the 1st Battalion /Essex Regiment Regimental No. 9247. On 25 April 1915 he served in the Balkans (2B) Theatre of War. This theatre was known as the Dardanelles Campaign but is more commonly known as Gallipoli. He was involved in the Gallipoli landings and was wounded in action. He was discharged 17-5-1917 due to sickness and he was awarded the following medals: Victory, British War Medal, the 1914-15 Star and the Silver War Badge.

The War Diaries of the 1st Battalion Essex Regiment provide an interesting insight into the days surrounding the Gallipoli Landings. The Lancashire Fusiliers were the first to land at dawn. They took heavy casualties and were awarded "six VCs before breakfast". The Turks opened fire just as their boats ran aground short of the beach.

MEDAL OVERVIEW

First World War, 1914-1918: All servicemen of all services, some women, and some civilians, were eligible for one or more campaign medals if they served abroad. These records are the nearest the Public Record Office has to a full 'roll-call' for the First World War (PRO).

1914 Star - For service under fire in France and Belgium, 5 August-22 November 1914. Includes sailors serving ashore.

1914-1915 Star - For service in all other theatres of war, 5 August 1914 and 31 December 1915; and for service in France and Belgium, 23 November 1914 - 31December 1915.

British War Medal - For service abroad (including India) 5 August 1914- 11 November 1918, or 1919-1920 in Russia.

Silver War Badge - For retirement, or discharge due to sickness or wounds caused by war service, at home or abroad, after 4 August 1914.

Victory Medal - For military and civilian personnel who served in a theatre of war.

A Star, British War Medal and a Victory medal is referred to as a "trio".

1914-1915 Star: The 1914-15 Star, instituted in 1918, omits the words AUG and NOV from the scroll and the date in the centre reads 1914-15. It was awarded to all personnel (including naval) who served in any theatre of war between 5th August 1914 and 31st December 1915, other than those who had already qualified for the 1914 Star. Over 2,350,000 medals were awarded, although those who saw service for which the Africa General Service medal or the Sudan medal were granted were not eligible for the Star.

I certify that according to the Offical Records the individuals named in this ROLL are entitled to the Decoration as detailed above. Place Warley signed: Major (WO 329/2746/Page 50-Sheet 50.B - Roll No. K/2/8B).

The BRITISH WAR MEDAL: The sterling silver British War Medal was instituted in 1919 to commemorate the successful conclusion of the Great War, although the qualifying period was extended to 1920 to cover mine clearing operations at sea as well as service in North and South Russia, the Baltic, Siberia, the Caspian Sea and the Black Sea.

The obverse of the medal depicts the uncrowned, left-facing profile of King George V by Sir Bertram Mackennal (the tiny initials 'BM' may be found at the base of the profile), known as the 'coinage head'. The reverse carries the dates 1914 1918 and shows St George on horseback trampling on the shield of the Central Powers. At the base is a skull and crossbones, symbolic of death, whilst above is the rising sun of victory. The medal is surmounted with a straight ribbon suspension bar.

The medal was impressed along the bottom edge with number, rank, name and regiment of the recipient in block letters, although those to merchant navy personnel show just the recipient's full name. Some BWMs are also impressed 'FOR SERVICE WITH THE ROYAL NAVY' and these were awarded to civillian canteen staff and tradesmen who served on a ship of war at sea. The BWM was, more often than not, accompanied by at least a Victory Medal, although some recipients of the BWM, such as those in post-war service, naval personnel who served in depot ships and boom defence vessels, or those who served in theatres such as certain parts of India, did not qualify for the Victory Medal.

Well over six and a half million BWMs were produced, including considerable numbers at the Calcutta Mint and 110,000 examples struck in bronze. These were awarded mainly to Chinese, Indian and Maltese personnel enrolled in labour corps units who served in various theatres of war. The bronze version is much rarer, and therefore much more valuable than its silver counterpart, although collectors of groups should note that recipients of the bronze medal were mostly not elligible for the Victory Medal, and so the BWM may be found alone.

I certify that according to the Official Records the individuals named in this ROLL are entitled to the Medal or Medals as detailed above. Place Warley, Date 16.1.20. Signed: W. Stewart Lieut.

The VICTORY MEDAL: The yellow bronze Victory Medal was authorised in 1919, issued to personnel who already had either of the Stars and, with a few exceptions, to holders of the BWM.

The obverse shows the standing figure of Victory, holding a palm branch in her right hand and stretching out her left. The reverse depicts a laurel wreath containing the words 'THE GREAT WAR FOR CIVILISATION 1914-1919'. Although the main period for qualifying ended generally in November 1918, some examples of service, such as Hedjaz and Aden up to midnight on 13th-14th January 1919, justify the dates on this medal.

Early issues of the VM were finished in a dull brownish bronze, but the numerous later issues were gilded. The ribbon, suspended by a ring, was of a double rainbow design. Some six million British & Commonwealth examples were produced. One again, the naming is incuse along the lower edge of the medal.

This medal is often known as the Allied Victory Medal because the same theme of the figure of Victory, with an identical ribbon, was adopted by thirteen of the allied nations. Individuals who were mentioned in dispatches were entitled to wear a bronze oakleaf on the ribbon of this medal.

SILVER WAR BADGE: The Discharge Badge 1914-18 by Paul Hinckley (http://members.tripod.co.uk/hinckley/index-swb.html)

Sometimes the Silver War Badge (SWB), was also referred to as the Wound Badge, Services Rendered Badge or the King's Silver Badge, this 1¼" (33mm) diameter Sterling silver lapel badge was issued from 1916 until 31st December 1919. It was accompanied by an official certificate of entitlement.

The badge was intended to be worn in civilian clothes by service personnel who had been honourably discharged due to wounds or sickness, and it was an offence to do so if not entitled. Prior to this it had been the practice of some misguided women at home to present white feathers to apparently able-bodied young men who were not wearing the King's uniform.

A total of 1,092,016 badges were issued; the fact that the badges are not hallmarked is indicative of their manufacture by the Royal Mint, although several contractors, including J R Gaunt & Son Ltd of Birmingham, were involved in the stamping of numbers and the fitting of pins.

Two separate dies were used, with differences in the curl of the 'I' in the GRI monogram. The first die also has slightly smaller crosses between the inscriptions. This change in dies, possibly due to the first one wearing out, occurred in Spring 1918, somewhere between badge numbers 366652 and 374053.

There are also several slight variations in construction of the badge, notably two different types of pin hinge design, varying pin lengths, and position and style of impressed serial number on the reverse. The badges were manufactured with the pin in either the vertical (see fig 1 on the left) or the horizontal (fig 2) positions.

Each badge was uniquely numbered on the reverse, Royal Navy, Merchant Navy, Royal Marines and Royal Air Force badges having an RN, MN, RM or RAF prefix respectively. Other prefixes for Australia, Canada, New Zealand and South Africa (A, C, NZ and SA) were also used. Some badges with a prefix I (for India) also exist although they are rare.

It is through these serial numbers that details of the recipients may be researched by checking the War Badge rolls, although only those awarded to the Army can be researched at the Public Record Office.

After the Armistice was signed in 1918, the conditions under which personnel qualified to receive the badge were laid down in Army Order (AO) 29, namely that the recipient must have served with the Colours for at least seven consecutive days since 4th August 1914 and have been retired or discharged due to wounds, sickness or on attaining the age of 51. Civillians serving with the RAMC, female nurses, VADs and members of QMAAC also qualified under these conditions.

The rolls give the recipient's Regimental number, rank, name, unit on discharge, badge number, date of enlistment, date of discharge, age on discharge, whether sick or wounded, and whether served overseas. Certain units give details of the actual wound or sickness.

Same address,
Dear Harry,
Well I have just got your last letter – and excuse me not answering same before now you see it’s like this I have only just got back from India, to Egypt and regt. Now my dear boy I am sorry to know you have been so unwell, but hope you are better by now. Well you seem optimistic that I shall soon be home now seeing they are forming a new Garrison Batt. at home – for foreign service. But you see our Batt. is a service one, and I do not know whether it will affect us or not. But my dear boy speaking for myself, I wish the thing was over so I could return home & to my former life, if only for your mother’s sake, and I am beginning to feel the strain. I hope you will continue to write & comfort your mother, as much as possible – and I know she worries over me. Yes I think the war will end soon, Germans can never stand the strain- much longer, and now the United States have gone against her the end will come sooner than we expect. I am always pleased to have a few lines from yourself, and I very often think of you, and the time when we shall meet again. Now I hope you will excuse these few simple lines, I do not feel in much form for writing at present. So now my lad goodbye for present, remember me to all. And now in conclusion I ask you to believe me to remain.
Truly yours J.W. Staines
