Country: Australia

Sale Price: $0

First World War Medals (1914-1915 Star, British War Medal & Victory Medal) with Memorial Plaque (colloquially known as a Death Plaque or "Dead Man's Penny") Widows Ribbon and Memorial Scroll associated with Alfred Henry STOPHER. Born in England during 1893, Alfred Henry STOPHER emigrated to Australia in 1913 to work as a laborer on the Victorian railroads. He enlisted into the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) on the 13th July, 1915 and was sent to camp at Broadmeadows before being moved to Seymour, where he qualified as a Signaller. Allocated the service number 951, he was enrolled into the 29 Infantry Battalion. Whilst in camp Alfred married his sweetheart, Annie Plunkett of Footscray, changing his will and enlistment papers to record her as next of kin. According to the First World War Embarkation Roll, Alfred Henry STOPHER boarded the troop transport HMAT Ascanius (A11) on the 10 November, 1915 from Port Melbourne. He arrived in the Middle East on 7th December, 1915. After spending months training in the desert and taking part in canal defence duties, the 29th Battalion embarked for France in mid June of 1916, with STOPHER travelling on the transport Tunisian. After arriving in Marseilles the Battalion entrained to northern France and proceeded to billets at Morbecque before moving to Estaires. After taking part in some minor operations at Bois Grenier in early July, STOPHER and his battalion took part in the major attack at Fromelles, remaining in the area until August before leaving for Houplines and then Strazeele. In October 1916 STOPHER went absent without leave for one day and upon his return was sentenced to ten days field punishment (No. 2) as a result. Following this incident he moved with the battalion to Bailleul and then to Ribemont, before going absent without leave again in December; this time overstaying his leave for just under three days. Given his past indiscretion, and the fact that this time he was on active duty when committing the crime, he was sentenced to 28 days field punishment (No. 1). After serving his punishment, STOPHER went with his battalion to Dernancourt and then Fricourt, participating in attacks near Bapaume in early 1917, where he was killed in action by shellfire on 12th February while laying a communications cable. Due to the heavy snow and the extent of his injuries, the body of Alfred Henry STOPHER was only discovered three days later, whereupon it was buried in a shell hole twenty yards north of Les Bouefs-Gueudecourt Road, south east of Gueudecourt, three miles north of Combles. He was subsequently re-buried at Bancourt Military Cemetery (British) in France, Grave 5 D 14. These medals were offered for sale on the open market, but failed to sell on the 28th July, 2013.

I am searching for the First World War Service medals of Theodore Raymond LEWIS. The missing war medals consist of the 1914-1915 Star, British War Medal and Victory Medal. Medals may have gone missing in New Zealand or the United Kingdom sometime between 1919 and 1931. Theodore Raymond LEWIS was born in Gloucestershire, United Kingdom during 1893 and he died in New Zealand during 1931. He had two serial numbers during his service and they were 1889 & 235053; either of which may appear on the missing medals. He may have been entitled to a Territorial Force Efficiency Medal and it is not clear if this medal was ever claimed? Subsequently, we have a medal of this type listed (in a seperate listing) on the chance that such a medal exists.
