NEW ZEALAND VICTORIAN MEDAL TO COLOUR SGT. GEORGE LEONARD New Zealand Medal 1869, reverse undated, to 2267 Colour Sergeant George Leonard, 68th (Durham Light Infantry) Regiment of Foot. Correctly impressed: 2267. CR. SERGT. GEORGE LEONARD, 68TH FOOT. The rank of colour sergeant was introduced into the British Army in 1813. The post was a position of honour for outstanding sergeants, providing recognition and extra pay. Historically, Colour Sergeants of British line regiments were tasked with protecting Ensigns, the most junior officers who were responsible for carrying their battalions\' Colours (flag or insignia) to rally troops in battles. For this reason, the Colour Sergeant rank was considered a prestigious one given normally to courageous Sergeants who had attained accomplishments in battles. The practice of carrying Colours of uniform design to identify each regiment and provide a rally point in the confusion of battle commenced in 1639. The Colours were carried in battle in the centre of the front rank between the centre companies where they could be easily seen and recognised. This had a moral raising effect on the spirits of the troops. It also meant that the once battle was joined the Colour Party became an obvious target and the centre would see the most bitter fighting.

Rushworth arrived just after the Battle of Alma and was almost immediately attached to the pay of Scutari Hospital, on 22 September 1854. Thereafter he remained at the hospital and did not qualify for the Crimea Medal. He would see active service in New Zealand, being present for the Tauranga campaign, at the rank of Orderly Room Clerk and Colour Sergeant, being discharged in January 1875.

He saw the following overseas service: Malta, 5 months, Ionian Islands, 1 year 4 months, New Zealand, 2 years 7 months, East Indies, 3 Years 3 Months. His statement of service on discharge states: “His conduct has been very good and that he is in possession of four good conduct badges and the New Zealand War Medal, is not in possession of an educational certificate.” “Has been once entered in the regimental defaulters book, Has been once tried by Court Martial.” Unfortunately for him, the one time he deserted during his service was between 1858 and 1879, during this time following the British Mutiny Act of 1858, following a court martial for desertion the Army could choose to Brand the deserter “On the left side, 2 inches below the armpit, with the letter D, such letter to be not less than an inch long”. The branding was fortunately not done by Hot Iron anymore, but instead done by tattooing with ink of gunpowder. An example of this branding is displayed in the Army Medical Services Museum with the implements used, they hold a preserved pieces of skin, from a post mortem, of a branded deserter. Following being found as medically unfit for further service he was discharged on 28th May 1877 at Netley, his distinguishing marks described as “Marked with the letter D”.

Military Medal. G.V.R. (22286 Sgt: J. Sylvane. 3/Div: -M-Aus. T. M. By:); British War Medal 1914-20 (22286 Sgt. J. Sylvane. 3-D.A.C. A.I.F.); Victory Medal unnamed. Good very fine. M.M. London Gazette 24 January 1919. The original recommendation states: \"On the 8th of August 1918 east of Hamel, during the preliminary bombardment, this N.C.O. was in charge of the 6th Trench Mortars. He handled his section with great ability, and carried out the allocated task under difficult circumstances. After the barrage had lifted, he went forward and assisted in the capture of an enemy 77mm gun and it\'s crew, and in turning this gun against the enemy. His coolness, courage and devotion to duty set a great example to the men under him.\" Sylvane enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force at Black Boy Hill, Western Australia on 20 December 1915, and was posted to the 36th Battery, 23rd Field Artillery Brigade. He went with the Battery to the UK in May 1916, and served in the French theatre of War from 24 November 1916. Sylvane advanced to Sergeant and transferred to the 6th Medium Trench Mortar Battery in February 1918. He served with the Battery on the Somme and was awarded his M.M. for gallantry in operations east of Hamel, 8 August 1918. The Battery\'s War Diary for 1-13 August 1918, gives the action as particularly hectic on 8 August, with several German Batteries being located by recce patrols. The Germans had spiked many of their guns, however several were captured, and two guns were later sent to the Australian War Museum. The Diary also contains the following Citation for Sylvane\'s M.M; \"For devotion to duty, courage and initiative in the advance east of Hamel 8 August 1918. In the initial attack he kept Mortars firing under heavy enemy barrage and in the day dealing with enemy strong points.\" Sylvane returned to Australia in H.M.A.T. Somali, 10 December 1918, and was discharged 15 March 1919. Jack\'s real name was William Innes Smith and he swapped identity with Jack Sylvane as he was over age. He was born in Stepney, London about 1870. Father, William Smith, Master Mariner and Mother, Catherine Elizabeth Innes. His Mother was Anglo/Burmese and his parents were married in Moulmein, Burma. Her father was a Scottish Shipbuilder and his wife a Burmese woman. William Smith (Jack Sylvane) arrived in Freemantle on the ii-fated SS Waikato in 1899. The ship drifted at sea for three weeks with a broken propellor shaft before being towed into Freemantle. It is assumed he was a crew member. A colourful life! He is also believed to have served as a Mercenary in Cuba.
WW1 AUSTRALIAN SOMME MILITARY MEDAL TO LANCE-CORPORAL CHARLES COLEMAN 1918 \"Somme\" M.M. awarded to Lance-Corporal Charles Coleman, 28th Australian Infantry Battalion, Australian Imperial Force - For his part in the capture of 12 men and 4 machine guns during an attack east of Framerville, near Amiens, 11 August 1918. He received a gunshot wound to his left leg the following month. MILITARY MEDAL, G.V.R., (6547 Pte - L. Cpl. C. Coleman. 28/Inf Bn: A.I.F.) minor edge bruising, very fine. M.M. London Gazette 21 January 1919. The original recommendation states (in joint recommendation with 3059 Pte L. Cpl. P. J. Fogarty): \"During the attack east of Framerville, near Amiens, on the morning 11th August 1918, these two signallers passed through a gap in the line during the mist, and came upon the enemy strong point while carrying their signalling gear and attack the post, capturing 12 prisoners and 4 machine guns.\" Charles was born in Birkenhead, South Australia, in 1890. He enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force, 8 September 1916, and embarked for France on S.S. Militia in January 1917. He served with the 28th Australian Infantry Battalion as part of the 7th Australian Brigade, 2nd Australian Division in the French theatre of War. Charles was awarded his M.M. for gallantry in operations on the Somme, in particular during the attack on Framerville, 11 August 1918. The Battalion War Diary records that zero hour for the attack was 4am, and that barrage was heavy with all calibre of guns. The Germans replied with a counter barrage, machine guns and gas, before the Australian Brigade attacked on a 2,000-yard front. The attack was successful with the Germans suffering heavy casualties, and 2 officers, 67 other ranks, and 16 machine- guns being captured. The 28th Battalion suffered 2 officers and 7 other ranks killed, 3 officers and 68 other ranks wounded. Charles continued to serve with the Battalion in France, and received a gunshot wound to the left leg, 5 September 1918. He returned to Australia on the S.S. Breman in May 1920 and was discharged 19 September 1920.

Also entitled to the Victory Medal. Partial erasure of details after number and before \'-L.CPL\' on M.M. Enough can be seen to see that the original naming was \'PTE-L.CPL\'. Obviously, Stewart wished only his NCO rank on the medal! Citation reads - \"In the Operation at CLERY on the 29th/30th August 1918, this Non-Commissioned Officer, showed great courage and initiative. As an enemy party of about 20 bombers advanced on and bombed the post which he commanded. He continually kept his Lewis Gun in action forcing the enemy bombers to take shelter and organising his Gun Team as a bombing party rushed forward with them succeeding in completely destroying the enemy bombing party. He did very good work in previous Operations at BRAY and SUZANNE as No. 2 of a Lewis Gun team.\" Charles Stewart enlisted on 14th February 1916. He was Wounded in Action three times including being gassed on the third occasion. In February 1917, the 37th Battalion provided 400 troops, with a similar party from the 38th Battalion to form a \"Special Raiding Battalion\". After several weeks of training the force staged a single 35-minute raid on the night of 27th February and was then disbanded. Stewart was Wounded in Action during this raid and twice more before the end of the War. Condition NEF. Nice toning to the Medals. Includes a lot of research including papers on CD and have full file on CD and 37 Battalion War Diary.
WW1 BRITISH GALLIPOLI MC & MID GROUP TO CAPT. R.W LEE ESSEX REGIMENT (LATE ARTIST RIFLES) A 1917 Palestine M.C./M.I.D. Group of four Medals awarded to Captain Reginald William Lee, Essex Regiment, late Artists Rifles, who was decorated for skillful leadership under heavy Turkish fire. Military Cross, G.V.R., unnamed as issued, with replacement suspension bar; 1914-15 Star (2. Lieut.R. W. Lee. Essex. R.); British War and Victory Medals with small M.I.D. oak leaves (2. Lieut. R. W.Lee.). Captain Lee served at Gallipoli and Sinai/Palestine. It was for his gallantry during the attack of Ali Muntar Ridge (Ali-El-Muntar), one of the key positions overlooking Gaza in the First battle of Gaza that Lieutenant Lee was awarded the Military Cross. On 26th March 1917 the First Battle of Gaza was fought. During the Battle, as part of 161 \"Essex\" Brigade, 54th Division, the 4th Essex were tasked with taking Green Hill and Ali Muntar Ridge. M.C. London Gazette 14 August 1917: ‘For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. During an attack he went back under heavy machine gun and rifle fire at close range, collected and brought up reinforcements, regardless of his own safety. He then organised and skillfully led the final assault from his part of the line.’ \"ali-el muntar 26.3.17\" M.I.D. London Gazette 6 July 1917 Reginald William Lee was born on 20 April 1890 at East Dulwich, London. Educated at Strand School and King’s College, London, Lee worked in Croydon as a bank clerk at the London County & West Bank Ltd. whilst living at 8 Gauden Road, Clapham. Following the outbreak of the Great War he enlisted as a Private in the 28th Battalion, County of London Regiment (Artists Rifles) on 14 November 1914, being commissioned 2nd Lieutenant in the 4th (Reserve) Battalion, Essex Regiment, in March 1915. Embarking at Devonport on 24 September 1915 aboard Franconia, Lee joined his unit on the Gallipoli Peninsula on 7 October 1915. He later disembarked at Mudros per Marathon on 17 December 1915 and was promoted Temporary Captain on 13 March 1916 at the time of the Senussi Campaign, and upon the death of Captain Tyler. Posted to Battalion Headquarters in Alexandria, he was awarded the M.C. and further advanced Acting Major on 14 June 1917 upon Major G. Jones relinquishing his commission. Just ten days later Lee was sent to hospital suffering from a septic foot, remaining under the careful watch of R.A.M.C. staff until 7 November 1917. As a result, he missed the Third Battle of Gaza fought from 1-3 November 1917 by a matter of days but was likely involved in the pursuit of Turkish forces across the desert alongside the ANZAC Mounted Division. Returning to Kantara, Lee appears to have spent much of 1918 continuing to recuperate and assisting Battalion Headquarters. Embarking to England aboard the newly commissioned troopship Katoomba from Port Said on 27 May 1919, Lee returned home to Gauden Road and was demobilised on 8 June 1919. Comes with copied service record and an original letter from the Army Council thanking Lee for his service during the Great War, dated 8 December 1920.

He then then became a Fellow of the Royal Faculty of Physicians and Surgeons in Glasgow in 1920. He was a Lieutenant in the University’s Officer Training Corps from 8 Oct 1913. He enlisted on 1 Apr 1915, was promoted to Captain on 1 Oct 1915 and proceeded to France in Nov 1915. He spent the entire war in France with only short periods of leave, originally with the 30th General hospital, and subsequently with the 16 Field Ambulance, 2nd York and Lancaster Regt, and the 12 Convalesce Depot. In 1918 he was awarded the Military Cross for attending wounded under heavy machine gun fire. He was also awarded the French Médaille d’honneur des Épidémies, awarded for medical services. (The Glasgow University Roll of honour shows their students received just 4 of these.) He was appointed Acting Major on 4 Sept 1918 and demobilised on 14 April 1919.He resigned his commission from 16 July 1920 and then worked as a medical specialist in Glasgow in ear, nose and throat surgery.In 1918 he married Marjorie Kerr Love and he died in Ayr, Ayrshire Scotland in 1977. https://www.tracesofwar.com/awards/3152/M%C3%A9daille dhonneur-des-%C3%89pid%C3%A9mies.htm Comes with various documents.

WW1 GERMAN ARMY AIR SERVICE BAVARIAN OFFICERS LITEWKA UNIFORM - NAMED WW1 Bavarian aviation officers early war Litewka tunic and trousers (not to be confused with the \'Kleiner Rock\', which were introduced from late 1915). Both the Litewka\'s and Kleiner Rock\'s were very popular with pilots because they were a more comfortable uniform to wear. Made with the distinct Litewka soft doeskin silvery grey wool material and with the straight lower pockets. Two rows of silver (Bavarian) buttons, and matching collar patches and slip-on type shoulder boards and all corresponding in colour for the 8th Bavarian Field Artillery Regiment. Matching gilded winged propellers on each shoulder board and with vertical loops for one award on the left hand side (presumably for a Bavarian pilots or observers badge) and a smaller set of vertical loops on the right hand side (possibly for an Austro-Hungarian pilots badge or Gallipoli Star). And with a nice pair of dark navy coloured straight-leg trousers of similar soft doeskin wool material with WW1 period matching metal buttons marked \'solide neuheit\'. Named to a Lt \'Rothe\' or \"Bothe\' (as it is hard to tell the first letter being period hand-written in ink italics). Initial research has found a PLM winner, Fritz Ritter von Roth, who did serve in the 8th Bavarian Atty Regiment, before joining the the Air Service in late 1917, and he was famous for being known as the \"Balloon Buster\". Although his spelling differs, with the \'e\' at the end, Roth(e) was spelt both ways, and it is a well known Southern German surname with both spellings being used (in the same way that Goring was also spelt Goering).

Matching trousers with leather shoe fasteners at the bottom. The tailors name is visible on the trouser buttons as well as to the top rear on the pants, being \'Isidor Bach Munich\' who was then a well known premium out-fitter and tailor of WW1 officers uniforms. This aviators uniform was found in a house clearance in Denmark about 10 years ago. (Medals & badges in some of the photo\'s are not included).

WW1 GERMAN OFFICERS BREECHES WW1 German Officers Breeches A nice set of very good quality early to mid war officers breeches. Field grey and with the correct red piping down each outer leg. Creases to the front. Used interior with a sign of where the owners label was, however has unfortunately been unstitched. Also, faint traces of ink stamp but not legible.

All other bikelite original matching buttons. Lace-up variety with both matching laces still intact. Approx. 32cms waist size. These are extremely hard to find nowadays, and they seem to sell for twice the cost of the officers straight leg trousers.

WW1 RNAS/RAF DSC GROUP TO DOUBLE FIGHTER ACE CAPT. C.B. RIDLEY An extremely rare Distinguished Service Cross Group of Three to Double Ace Fighter Pilot Captain Cyril Burfield Ridley D.S.C., Royal Air Force, late Royal Naval Air Service. A superb Great War Ace\'s 1918 D.S.C. group of three awarded to Captain C. B. Ridley, Royal Air Force, late Royal Naval Air Service, credited with at least 11 Victories with No. 1 (Naval) Squadron and No. 201 Squadron, flying over 200 Ops; Ridley completed over 40 Air Combat Sorties in Sopwith Triplanes and Camels, an early expert in low strafing he once came down to just 10ft to deliver his attack - before tragically losing his life in a mid-air collision whilst with No. 12 Squadron in Germany in May 1920. Distinguished Service Cross, G.V.R., Hallmarks for London 1917; British War and Victory Medals (Capt. C. B. Ridley. R.A.F.). Good very fine. D.S.C. London Gazette 17 April 1918: \"For distinguished services as a pilot and for courage in low-flying expeditions during which he attacked enemy trenches with machine-gun fire from a height of 30 feet. On 9 March 1918, he attacked a formation of enemy scouts, selecting one which was attacking one of our machines. The enemy aircraft dived down with a quantity of smoke issuing from it, but it appeared to flatten out at 2,000 feet and disappeared in the mist. He has previously destroyed several enemy machines and has at all times led his flight with great skill and courage.\" Cyril Burfield Ridley was born at Esher, Surrey on 18 January 1895. He was educated at Arundel House, Surbiton and at an early age showed a great interest and proficiency in aeronautics. Ridley soon became a keen member of the Aero Club, in his time becoming an accomplished builder of both gliding and powered aeroplanes. During 1910, aged only 15, Ridley built a glider with the vast wingspan of 18ft, so successful that it was demonstrated at the Crystal Palace and Sandown Park. A cutting of Flight, dated 26 August 1911 also includes an image of \'Master C. Ridley, the boy model maker, who won the Gamage Silver Challenge Cup and Gold Medal for longest flight at this competition.\' His love for the air developed into a career, working as an Aeronautical Engineer for the Sopwith Aviation Company, during which time he also qualified as a pilot, from Hall School, Hendon, with Certificate No. 2427 on 20 February 1916. He was thence commissioned Flight Sub-Lieutenant in the Royal Naval Air Service on 25 June 1916, being posted to Dover and successfully completing both patrols and escort sorties. Although his initial training had been a success, the first combat victory for Ridley was not accounted for until Spring 1917, sharing an Albatros DIII over Villers Les Cagnicourt on 29 April 1917, later sharing an Albatros DV, near Messines on 17 July 1917, his first \'solo\' that of a another DV following \'...a very hot engagement with six enemy scouts near Ypres, 14 August 1917. A DFW was scored over Zillibeke, 10 September 1917 with his report stating: One two-seater observed approaching our formation over Zillibeke at 16,000 feet at 5.05pm. On being observed it immediately dived east and I fired a short burst into it, whereupon it dived vertically and turned west, eventually appearing to flatten out at 1,000 feet over Ypres. I followed it down firing continuously at it from point-blank range until my gun jammed over the enemy trenches. The E.A. was last seen going down low over the trenches with puffs of smoke emitting from its engine.\' What else that is evident from the study of the supporting documentation is that of his many \'probables\'. Many inconclusive combats are noted, including in June, that of driving an enemy scout to 900 feet, strikes seen entering the fuselage and wings, 3 September 1917. A mere three days later, north of Lille, Ridley shot up an enemy kite-balloon, causing the enemy observer to make use of his parachute, Ridley noting he was lucky to clear \'...very intense A.A. fire\' upon his climbing from the target. A charming margin note, following that \'...the balloon appeared to be hit but did not catch fire\', stated only \'Balls\'. By December 1917, Ridley was promoted Flight Lieutenant and had converted to Camels, claiming an Albatros DV at 18,000ft, near Passchendaele, 6 December 1917. He then returned home until February 1918, completing Home Defence Duties from Dover and London. March 1918 saw a return to the Front and he shared in a kite balloon over Ypres, later confirmed as a decoy bearing a straw Observer. His unit was thence re-named No. 201 Squadron Royal Air Force in April, adding one more kite balloon to his score, east of Boyelles, 8 April 1918. Before July 1918 and his appointment as a Flight Commander, four more kills were added, these being a Pfalz DIII, two Fokker Dr. Is and a Fokker DVII, going to earth \'...completely out of control\', 4 July 1918. Great detail may be gleaned from the Squadron records of the wholly treacherous circumstances which Ridley found himself on a number of occasions and the exact frequency of his service. He is shown to have engaged 10 enemy scouts on 21 March 1918, having been forced to withdraw on account of his guns jamming. Between the calendar year of April 1917-18, Ridley is confirmed as having flown in excess of 200 sorties, a most intriguing mission being that shared with South African Ace Flight Lieutenant S. M. Kinkead, engaging Gothas off Westende, on 13 November 1917. His service during the year was eventually rewarded with a richly-deserved D.S.C, his recommendation (NAAIR1/74/15/9/165 refers) states a record of 17 victories, no doubt as a result the many probables which may be attributed following his continuous and varied combat flying in those previous twelve months. The skill of Ridley was far more than a consistent and active combat pilot. He was also a superbly proficient enemy strafer, with numerous entries providing details: Flight Lieutenant Ridley attempted an attack on Rechem. He fired 150 rounds from 250 feet at troops on the ground in a small town probably near Menin,being unable to find the aerodrome. He experienced very severe machine-gun and A.A. fire and flying onions. He encountered E.A. in mist and returned with his machine riddled with bullets\' 13 July 1917 Flight Lieutenant Ridley observed bodies of troops in shell holes and trenches just in front of our advancing troops near Becelaere. He went down to within 10 feet of the ground and was much below the level of the trees at times. He dived at these batches of troops who ran from shell hole to shell hole pursued by the triplane. Our troops waved and cheered as the pilot flew over them and dived towards the enemy who were in complete panic.\' 20 September 1917 Flight Lieutenant Ridley saw a block-house behind which were about 100 men. Some appeared to be climbing over the top or perhaps sniping our troops. He fired 150 rounds at these men and took several dives at them until too close to the ground, when he had to pull off. Apparently some of these troops were shot. Position N. of Becelaere.\' 26 September 1917. By July 1918, now promoted Captain, Ridley was requested to complete a test flight upon the RAM B8783. As a vastly experienced pilot in low-level missions, his report would be essential for the approval of new machines. However a report regarding the machine makes for stark reading: Having flown this machine, I consider it very slow, exceedingly heavy on controls, and unmanageable for manoeuvring near the ground. I therefore consider it unsuitable for low-flying and ground strafing work. After I had been in the air for fifteen minutes, the engine failed, owing to a broken piston liner, and I was forced to land.\' The conclusion from the field confirms the trust in the opinion of Ridley, concluding it is \'...little doubt that this machine is unsuitable for any military purposes.\' Following the Great War, Ridley remained with the Royal Air Force but was killed in a training accident. His Bristol fighter collided mid-air with the aircraft of Flight Lieutenant J.D. de Pencier, on 17 May 1920 over Lindenthal, Cologne, Germany. Both men were serving with No. 12 Squadron, with the aircraft crashing from a height of approximately 450 feet (Berliner Lokal-Anzeiger, refers), their crew sustaining injuries but surviving. He is buried in the Cologne Southern Cemetery, Germany; together with Commissioning Documents as Flight Sub-Lieutenant and as Captain, two portrait photographs of the recipient, besides a large file with a number of original newspaper cuttings, copied photographs and documents, all pertaining to the education, career and death of the recipient, 33 copied images, some with annotations from the original photograph album of the recipient of his service throughout his service and copied Log Book entries.
WW1 ROYAL FLYING CORPS MESSAGE STREAMER A very good and slightly used WW1 RFC Message Streamer. WW1 RFC aircrew regularly used these message streamers throughout the war to drop information and coordinates of enemy positions to their troops on the ground. In addition, these streamers were also used by the Flight and Squadron Commanders by attaching them to the their wing struts and sometimes on the tail fin, so that the other pilots could easily identify them in the air. A good example with correct central pop-button at the top inside of the pouch to secure the weight and message within the canvas pouch square. Measures 54 inches or 137 cms in length. Note: SE5a aircraft not included !

In 1940 he married Doris Blades. He enlisted as a L/Cpl with the Royal Engineers in Aug 1940. He participated in the D-Day Offensive. as part of the 79 Armoured Engineers Squadron. This unit used strange-looking tanks (known as Hobart’s Funnies) that could be modified to float, clear mines, and carry and lay bridges and roadways, all of which proved their value in this action. Thornber was wounded in action on 9th June 1944 when that unit was fighting at Cambes, an important early action after D Day. He was discharged from service on 27 Sept 1946 and his testimonial states “He was a demolition NCO in a tank of an Assault Sqn R.E. and acted most coolly through many gallant actions. He is a top rate Carpenter & Joiner & has carried out some excellent construction work.” He died in Burnley in 1990. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/79th_Armoured_Division_(United_Kingdom) Stanley Thornber Served 1940-45 From Burnley Lancs Demolition NCO in a tank of assault Sqn RE.

WW2 BRITISH/NEW ZEALAND TROBUK MM GROUP TO STANLEY MAY Stanley May was born 9 June 1916 in West Derby, Lancashire, England. In August 1939 he joined the Royal Army in the Queens Own Cameron Highlanders, Service Number 2929616. He was assigned to the 2nd Battalion which served in Sudan, Egypt, and Libya (Tobruk). The Allies had captured the strategically important city of Tobruk and in 1942 were holding it (along with the 2nd Battalion Cameron Highlanders) but under extreme pressure from the Germans who had isolated the city. The second Battle of Tobruk took place between 14 and 22 June, 1942. By the 22nd, the Germans had largely overrun Tobruk and the Cameron Highlanders held out for 24 hours after the Surrender order had been issued. Despite being taken into captivity, they marched, led by their Colonel in “column of three” formation with a swing to the tune of their Pipers – The March of the Cameron men – each company led by its company commander just as though they were on parade. Stanley was reported as missing on 21 June 1942. Casualty List No. 889 as Missing, 21/06/1942. Prisoner of War in Italy - P.O.W. Camp number 78, Sulmona, postal mark number 3300, 1945 held at Stalag 11B, Fallingbostel, German POW No.138808 Stanley was reported as no longer a POW on the 9th of June 1945, as Fallingbostel was the first POW camp to be liberated on 17th April 1945. Awarded the Military Medal for Bravery in the London Gazette 11th October 1945. Not certain what his M.M. was for though I have been told he was an escaper. If he was an escaper he must have been recaptured but unfortunately his POW report which would have no doubt been used as a citation hasn\'t survived which is a shame. His MM could have been for repeated escape attempts or service at Tobruk. Stanley emigrated to New Zealand after the War and it is thought he was in New Zealand before the War as well. This is all covered in the files.

The “D” guard is completely textbook, with a teardrop quillon end. The lower ferrule has fine standing oak leaves separated by acorns. As is the case with the Dachau versions there is no background darkening to this design. The tang nut is a standard, nickel-plated steel type, showing mild traces of age but nothing bad. The reverse cover plate is also nickel-plated steel. The grip is a fine ebony beauty, being in perfect condition. This ebony has outstanding tight nickel wire. The runes button is also stainless as we see on these degens. This button has fine and only slightly worn with raised SS runes with a good background darkening. The scabbard of this degen is not the slimmer type we usually see with these swords, but rather is the standard size. It is retained by two headless side screws. The lower mount is a conventional style which still has the darkening in its decorative lines and is retained by two dome head screws. The scabbard shell is straight throughout and has fairly good original paint. The paint shows some crazing here and there and a little bit of wear on the reverse centre. The unmarked blade is in choice condition, measuring 32 inches long. It has the conventional fuller and good, crisp edges. This blade remains in Mint condition. It has the standard Dachau type brown leather washer.

WW2 NEW ZEALAND/BRITISH TROBUK MM GROUP TO STANLEY MAY Stanley May was born 9 June 1916 in West Derby, Lancashire, England. In August 1939 he joined the Royal Army in the Queens Own Cameron Highlanders, Service Number 2929616. He was assigned to the 2nd Battalion which served in Sudan, Egypt, and Libya (Tobruk). The Allies had captured the strategically important city of Tobruk and in 1942 were holding it (along with the 2nd Battalion Cameron Highlanders) but under extreme pressure from the Germans who had isolated the city. The second Battle of Tobruk took place between 14 and 22 June, 1942. By the 22nd, the Germans had largely overrun Tobruk and the Cameron Highlanders held out for 24 hours after the Surrender order had been issued. Despite being taken into captivity, they marched, led by their Colonel in “column of three” formation with a swing to the tune of their Pipers – The March of the Cameron men – each company led by its company commander just as though they were on parade. Stanley was reported as missing on 21 June 1942. Casualty List No. 889 as Missing, 21/06/1942. Prisoner of War in Italy - P.O.W. Camp number 78, Sulmona, postal mark number 3300, 1945 held at Stalag 11B, Fallingbostel, German POW No.138808 Stanley was reported as no longer a POW on the 9th of June 1945, as Fallingbostel was the first POW camp to be liberated on 17th April 1945. Awarded the Military Medal for Bravery in the London Gazette 11th October 1945. Not certain what his M.M. was for though I have been told he was an escaper. If he was an escaper he must have been recaptured but unfortunately his POW report which would have no doubt been used as a citation hasn\'t survived which is a shame. His MM could have been for repeated escape attempts or service at Tobruk. Stanley emigrated to New Zealand after the War and it is thought he was in New Zealand before the War as well. This is all covered in the files.
WW2 RAF DFC GROUPING TO WING COMMANDER C. A. VERNIEUX - FOR A SUCCESSFUL ATTACK ON THE GERMAN BATTLE CRUISERS SCHARNHORST & GNEISENAU A comprehensive Distinguished Flying Cross group of 5 to Wing Commander Cyril Ashley Vernieux, Royal Air Force, along with pilot\'s log books, photo\'s and supporting paperwork. A superb Second World War D.F.C. group of five awarded to Wing Commander C. A. Vernieux, Royal Air Force, who was decorated for his command of a section of three No. 15 Squadron Stirlings in a successful daylight strike against the enemy battle cruisers at Brest on18 December 1941: leading them in through curtains of flak - and in the face of enemy fighter opposition - he gained two direct hits. He had already completed a tour of duty in Hampdens of No. 50 Squadron in the period April-August 1940 - no mean feat for the flying glasshouse\' was a slow and vulnerable war horse. Distinguished Flying Cross, G.VI.R., the reverse officially dated \'1941\', in its Royal Mint case of issue; 1949-45 Star; Air Crew Europe Star; Defence and War Medals 1939-45. Good very fine. D.F.C. London Gazette 9 January 1942: \'One day in December 1941, a strong force of bomber aircraft carried out a determined attack on the German warships Gneisenau and Scharnhorst at Brest. The operation was carried out in the face of extremely heavy and accurate anti-aircraft fire and determined attacks by enemy fighters. Nevertheless, the air crews engaged pressed home their attacks to the utmost and succeeded in scoring hits on their objectives. Several enemy aircraft were shot down. The success of the operation, which demanded the highest degree of skill and courage, reflects the greatest credit on the efforts of the following officers and airmen who participated in various capacities as leaders and members of aircraft crews.\' The original recommendation states: \'This officer has completed 42 operational sorties, eight of which have been on Stirling aircraft since joining this squadron in October 1941. On 18 December 1941, he was detailed to lead a section of three Stirlings in a daylight attack on the battle cruisers at Brest. In spite of the delay experienced at the rendezvous, he succeeded in catching up the other two sections of his squadron shortly before reaching the target and, regardless of interference from fighters and intense heavy flak, bombed his target exactly on time and with such effect that a direct hit was scored on both battle cruisers. The accuracy of his run up was such that No. 3 in his section also secured direct hits on both ships. It is considered that Flying Officer Vernieux led his section with great skill and courage and that his steadiness under extremely arduous conditions was directly responsible for a notable feat of precision bombing.\' Covering remarks by the Air Vice-Marshal, No. 3 Group: \'I concur in the above remarks and consider that the leadership displayed by this young officer when entrusted with the responsibility of guiding a section of Stirling aircraft into this very strongly defended area, fully merits special recognition. The time for training was exceedingly short, and yet in the face of heavy anti-aircraft fire and attacks by enemy fighters, he kept his section well together and permitted his bomb aimer to carry out a successful attack.\' Cyril Ashley Vernieux was born in January 1913 and commenced pilot training at R.A.F. Wittering in November 1936. Confirmed in the rank of Pilot Officer after gaining his \'Wings\' in January 1937, he was serving as a recently promoted Flying Officer in No. 50 Squadron on the outbreak of hostilities in September 1939. He first flew operationally in the Squadron\'s Hampdens in April 1940, when he undertook a reconnaissance over the Elbe on the 23rd. In May he attacked targets in Cologne, Munich and Salzbergen, in addition to sorties to Flushing and Roermond in Holland. Having then flown another recce. over the Elbe on 1 June, Vernieux and his crew attacked eight further targets in the same month, Aachen, Frankfurt, Koblenz and Osnabruck among them. Then in July-August he raised his tally of operational sorties to the 32, his targets including Bremen, Gelsenkirchen, Wilhelmshaven. Tour-expired, he was quickly back in action after joining No. 15 Squadron - a Stirling unit - in October 1941, flying as 2nd pilot to Squadron Leader Sellick in a dusk strike on Brest on the 22nd. He gained further experience as a 2nd pilot in a return trip to Brest on the first day of November, prior to taking the helm himself in a raid on Mannheim on the 7th. Now fully acquainted with the Stirling\'s cockpit and controls, he undertook his D.F.C.-winning daylight trip to Brest on 18 December, leading a formation of three aircraft in the face of heavy odds. He was to return to Brest on the 27th and flew two more sorties in April 1942, against Rostock and Kiel. He remained on the Retired List after a stint of duty at the Air Ministry in the mid-to-late 50s. Vernieux was rested with an appointment at H.Q. Bomber Command and saw no further operational flying. A spell of duty in the Middle East ensued in 1946-47 and he was advanced to Wing Commander in March 1949. Having then entered the \'jet age\', Vernieux was placed on the Retired List after a stint of duty at the Air Ministry in the mid-to-late 50s. Comes with a quantity of original documentation, comprising: (i) The recipient\'s R.A.F. Pilot\'s Flying Log Books (2), covering the periods November 1936 to November 1940 and November 1940 to June 1957, bound as one volume; together with a privately maintained R.A.F. Pilot\'s Flying Log Book (Form 414 type) for the period July 1944 to September 1945. (ii) Three confidential reports from the 1950s and a pair of invitation to the Russian Embassy to mark the 34th and 35th Anniversaries of the Soviet Armed Forces in 1952 and 1953; together with two or three career photographs.
WW2 RAF DFM GROUP TO FT. SGT (LATER P/O) T. J. GOSLING Killed in Action Distinguished Flying Medal to 658167 Flight Sergeant, later Pilot Officer, Terence James Gosling, 40 Squadron, R.A.F.V.R. A Second War ‘1943’ D.F.M. awarded to Wellington pilot, Flight Sergeant, later Pilot Officer, T. J. Gosling, Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve, who flew in at least 40 operational missions with 40 Squadron -predominately low level attacks, on Italian targets, including the Brato Marshalling Yards, 11 November 1943, when ‘he came down to 20 feet and machine-gunned two vehicles on the Florence Autostrade.’ Pilot Officer Gosling was killed in action during a raid on Turin, 25 November 1943, ‘his body was recovered from the sea and identified by means of clothing and his flying log’. Distinguished Flying Medal, G.VI.R. (658167. F/Sgt. T. J. Gosling. R.A.F.) mounted on investiture brooch. Very Fine. Have added other Medal entitlement of: 1939/45 Star, Africa Star, Defence Medal and 1939/45 War Medal. D.F.M. London Gazette 20 April 1945, the recommendation states: ‘This pilot has completed 40 operational sorties for a total of 240 hours on which he has shown skill and resourcefulness as a pilot combined with great courage and determination. During the whole of his operational flying, he has not returned from the sortie without having completed the duty for which he was detailed. On 25th August 1943, at Taranto marshalling yards, he successfully illuminated the target despite heavy opposition with the result that the raid was successfully accomplished by the bomber force. He has successfully illuminated other targets with the same satisfactory result. His bombing has been extremely accurate on very small targets due to his determination and great care to make accurate bombing runs despite any opposition that may be encountered. On 11th November 1943, after successfully bombing the Brato marshalling yards, he came down to 20 feet and machine-gunned two vehicles on the Florence Autostrade. During the whole of his time on this squadron, Flight Sergeant Gosling has shown great courage and determination which has resulted in a highly successful tour of operations. Remarks by Air Officer Commanding: \'This N.C.O. throughout his tour has shown outstanding courage, determination and devotion to duty. He has been chosen on many occasions to carry out difficult tasks, all of which he has completed successfully.

White, Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve, a member of the Goldfish Club as a consequence of his Lancaster having to ditch on the return from a raid on enemy shipping in La Spezia Harbour, 13 April 1943. He rallied his crew, who were stranded in their dingy for 63 hours before being spotted by a Whitley and returned home by motor launch. White flew in at least 30 operational sorties with 61 Squadron, prior to flying in at least a further 34 with 35 (Madras Presidency) Squadron as part of Pathfinder Force. He was heavily engaged with the Squadron during D-Day operations, and took part in the early morning raid on Longues Coastal Battery, 6 June 1944 Distinguished Flying Medal, G.VI.R. (618899. Sgt. S. A. White. R.A.F.); 1939-45 Star; Air Crew Europe Star, clasp, France and Germany; Defence and War Medals 1939-45, mounted for display, with Goldfish Club lapel badge, good very fine. D.F.M. London Gazette 16 November 1943. Details included in a R.A.F. Press Release state: ‘Sergeant White has completed a large number of attacks against major targets in Germany and Italy. At all times, he displayed a fine fighting spirit and great devotion to duty. On one occasion when returning from a raid on Spezia, his aircraft was forced down into the sea. During the three days and two nights the crew were in their dingy, Sergeant White’s cheerful and confident spirit did much to maintain the high morale of the crew. An excellent Air Gunner, always calm and collected, this airman’s vigilance has often enabled his Captain to avoid enemy night fighters.’ Stanley Arthur White served during the Second War with the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve. He carried out his initial training as an Air Gunner at No. 2 A.G.S., Dalcross, from November 1942. White was posted to No. 1660 Conversion Unit at Swinderby in January 1943, before being posted for operational flying with 61 Squadron (Lancasters) at Syerston the following month. He flew in at least 30 operational sorties with the Squadron, including: Gardening - Frisian Islands; Gardening - Laeso Island; Essen (4); Nuremburg (2); Duisburg (2); Frankfurt; La Spezia 13 April 1943 ‘Ditched Dinghy 250 miles S.W. of Scilly Islands. 3 days 2 nights 63 hours’ (Logbook refers); Dortmund; Pilsen; Dusseldorf; Wuppertal (2); Krefeld; Mülheim; Gelsenkirchen (2); Cologne (3); Turin; Mannheim; Milan (2); Leverkusen and Berlin. The raid on La Spezia, 13/14 April 1943, consisted of ‘208 Lancasters and 3 Halifaxes which bombed the dock area... and caused heavy damage. 4 Lancasters were lost and 3 more, either damaged or in mechanical difficulty, flew on to land at Allied airfields in North Africa. It is believed that this was the first occasion that the recently captured North African airfields were used for Bomber Command aircraft in distress. The 3 Lancasters flew back to England later.’ (Bomber Command War Diaries refer) White’s Lancaster, piloted by Flying Officer M. E. Chivers, was one of the 4 Lancasters to be lost on the raid. The Squadron’s Operations Record Book gives the following: ‘Attack on Battleships in Harbour At Spezia. F/O Chivers bombed from 8,000 ft. Battleship was seen and bombed but no results were observed. No. P.F.F. flares at Lake Bourget were seen on the way home. Little of no navigational aid was received, the aircraft eventually ditched S.W. of Scillies. Crew sighted by Whitley A/C after 63 hours in the sea and picked up by launch.’ Having completed his tour of operations, White was posted as an instructor to 26 O.T.U. at Little Horwood in October 1943. White returned to operational flying when he was posted to 35 (Madras Presidency) Squadron (Lancasters) at Gravely, in April 1944. Operating as part of Pathfinder Force, White flew in at least 34 operational sorties with the Squadron, including: Rouen Marshalling Yards; Cologne; Laon; Karlsruhe; Acheres; Lens; Louvain; Duisberg; Dortmund; Aachen; Bourg Leopold; Mardyck; Mont Couple; Longues Coastal Battery (situated between Omaha and Gold Beaches) 6 June 1944; Forêt de Cerisy, 7 June 1944; Évrecy; Fouillard; Renescure; Oisemont (2); Villeneuve St. George; numerous Flying Bomb sites throughout July; Kiel; Stuttgart (3) and Stettin.

WW2 RAF FIGHTER PILOT DFC GROUP TO S/LDR W.J. BODDINGTON WW2 RAF Fighter Pilot Distinguished Flying Cross Group of 6 to Squadron Leader William James Boddington D.F.C., 613 Squadron, R.A.F. The ‘Operation No-Ball 1944’ D.F.C. group of six awarded to Squadron Leader W. J. Boddington, Royal Air Force, late Major in the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles), who saw service with the infantry during the Fall of France before joining No. 613 Squadron for fighter and ground-attack duties throughout the war before returning to the Army in 1946. Distinguished Flying Cross, G.VI.R., reverse officially engraved \'1944\'; 1939-45 Star; Air Crew Europe Star, clasp, France and Germany; Defence and War Medals 1939-45; General Service 1918-62, 2 clasps Palestine 1945-48, Malaya (correctly named Sqn. Ldr. W. J. Boddington. D.F.C. R.A.F.), mounted as worn, overall contact wear, nearly very fine. D.F.C. London Gazette 29 December 1944, the original recommendation states: ‘F/Lt. Bodington has completed a total of 68 operations – 15 on Mustangs and 53 on Mosquitoes. While on Mustangs he carried out escort and shipping reconnaissance duties, being credited with one F.W.190 confirmed destroyed following a raid on Folkstone in 1943. F/Lt/ Bodington SIC has carried out 38 night and 15 daylight sorties on Mosquitoes in No. 2 Group. The daylight sorties included Ranger Operations and attacks on Flying Bomb sites. Attacks against enemy aerodromes, and a large number of stories in support of the Army and in search of enemy transport, were carried out by the night. F/Lt. Bodington SIC has shown the greatest perseverance and determination on Operations over a period of 18 months and has added greatly to their success.\' William James Boddington was born at Birmingham on 30 March 1921, the son of P. J. Boddington, a Surgeon who saw service in the Second Boer War and later as a Surgeon Captain with the Royal Horse Guards during the Great War, being wounded on 5 October 1915 in that capacity. The younger Boddington was educated at Haileybury and the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst being Commissioned 2nd Lieutenant with the Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) on 30 December 1939, making him among of the last batch of Pre-War regulars. Joining the 7th Battalion, Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) in France before later joining the Headquarters Staff with 156 Brigade. Escaping the Fall of France, he was promoted Lieutenant on 1 July 1941 and seconded to the Royal Air Force on 1 October 1941 he began to see service as a fighter pilot. Much of 1942 was spent training with one notably incident occurring on 15 December 1942 during a formation flying exercise on Mustangs. With the formation lost in deep fog and running low on fuel Boddington broke formation and attempted to land on Fountains Earth Moor, Nidderdale, unfortunately the terrain made that impossible so with the last of his fuel he climbed to a safe hight and bailed out. A search party was organised, and he was met by his would-be rescuers walking calmly down the road into Nidderdale, none the worse for wear. Posted to ‘A’ Flight, No. 613 (City of Manchester) Squadron equipped with Mosquitoes he flew bomber escort missions with them seeing action several times over the next few months, most notably on the 11 May 1943 when they caught a force of a dozen F.W.190’s over Great Yarmouth. Boddington proved himself on this occasion, catching one F.W.190 and blowing chunks from its port wing and damaging the fuselage, engine and cawling on the starboard side, he was officially awarded one F.W.190 damaged. Promoted Flight Lieutenant on 8 October 1943. With Robert ‘Pinpoint’ Bateston taking over No. 613 Squadron they began, a concerted campaign of bombing against V1 launch sites throughout Northern France starting with a raid on 31 December 1943 near Maintenay. During this attack 613 Squadron was to the rear of the British formation and both Boddington and one of his compatriots were hit by flak, although neither was lost. They continued to fly missions against ground targets in France over the next few months, including Day Rangers like the one flown on 16 May 1944 when Boddington personally attacked targets including flak positions around Chateaudun and Orleans. Later joining Op. ‘Rhubarb’ targeting German communications and logistics in preparation for D-Day. After the landings the objective changed to harrying the enemy and preventing their movement. Flying for the rest of the war Boddington reached the rank of Squadron Leader and with the award of his D.F.C. it seems despite his success he preferred Army service. His obituary notes one occasion on which he was shot down and ‘had to face a Court of Inquiry, not for the loss of a valuable aeroplane, but for failing retrieve his parachute’. Seeing further service in Malaya and Palestine he was later promoted Captain with the 1st Battalion Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) on 2 July 1946 he saw service at Gibraltar and Triesle and was further advanced Major on 31 July 1952. He saw more service in Germany, Bahrain and Kenya. Boddington died in 1985, at his Funeral the Cameronians were represented at the Funeral by Major-General F. K. G. Sixsmith. Comes together with a set of flying wings as well as copied research including census data, London Gazette entries and extracts from Mosquito and 2 Group History as well as a recommendation for award, Operations Record Book for 613 Squadron and a copied obituary.

London Gazette 17 July 1945: \"This young Canadian Captain of a Lancaster bomber has now completed 36 bombing sorties, many of which have been long and arduous flights deep into the heart of Germany, necessitating mental and physical strain whilst exposed to fighter and flak opposition. His powers of endurance and concentration on reaching the target have not been appreciably affected, as he then executed vigorous and determined attacks the accuracy of which have been amply proved by the photographic evidence he has brought back. By such excellent results verifying the accuracy with which he presses home his attacks, it is evident that Flight Lieutenant Rhude goes through all enemy opposition, and lets nothing deter him from his primary objective. It is recommended that such gallantry throughout his operational tour be recognised by the award of the Distinguished Flying Cross.\" Cecil Anderson Rhude was born in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia in 1918. He was educated at Brown School, New Glasgow and Acadia University. Rhude enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force at Halifax in May 1941, and carried out his initial pilot training at No. 1 I.T.S.
