F.H.HOLMES

Medal Type: WW1 - 1914-1915 Star Medal Trio

Service No: 240078
Unit No: 1/15

Corps/Service:
Infantry

Country: United Kingdom
I am searching for the missing war medals of my great grandfather, Sergeant Frederick Henry HOLMES. The missing war medals may consist of the 1914-1915 Star, British War Medal and Victory Medal. We believe that he served on Gallipoli with the 1/15th Battalion of the Norfolk Regiment. However, we also have conflicting information that he enlisted in 1917, so he may not have been the recipient of the 1914-1915 Star. He was commended for bravery (possibly Mentioned In Dispatches) as he was mentioned in an Article in the London Gazette supplement on the 1st May, 1918. Any assistance to help us to recover these missing war medals would be very much appreciated.

Country: Australia
I am searching for my father's missing First World War medals which consist of the Military Medal, 1914-1915 Star, British War Medal and the Victory Medal. His name is Vernon Albert BONE and his service number was 907. According to the First World War Embarkation Roll, he left Australia as a reinforcement for the 3rd Light Horse Regiment; so his 1914-1915 Star may have this particular unit engraved into it. However, he transferred to the 3rd Battery of the 1st Division, Light Trench Mortar Battery and was serving in this unit when he was awarded the Military Medal. I fully understand that these medals would be cherished by a collector, however I would dearly love to have my father's medals returned to me. My father did not settle back into our family after the war, which is why I have no idea where the missing medals are. I would be most grateful for your help in recovering these missing medals.

I am searching for the missing First World War medals of my great grandfather Lieutenant Colonel Valentine Kingston BIRCH who served in the British Army. Valentine served in India before the First World War 1837-1891 Indian General Service Medal. Valentine Kingston BIRCH joined very early in 1914 and as a result, he was awarded the 1914 Star, commonly referred to as the 'Mons Star'. During the Great War he was awarded the DSO (Distinguished Service Order) with bar and also the British War Medal and Victory Medal. The medals were last seen in my family around 1965 but we have no idea where they are now. As you can appreciate, these medals are very valuable. However they are extremely dear to my family and we would appreciate to have them returned. If they are in the hands of a collector or museum who wish to retain the medals, we would be most grateful just to know their whereabouts and that they are safe. Yours gratefully, Kathy KNOTT (Tasmania, Australia).

Medal Type:
Service No: W/2164
Unit No: HMAS Perth

Corps/Service:
Navy

Country: Australia
Medals Gone Missing has been contacted by a 91 year old gentleman by the name of John PETHEBRIDGE. It was indicated that his brother, Stoker Charles Alexander PETHEBRIDGE was a Prisoner Of War to the Japanese after the loss of the Australian cruiser, HMAS Perth. On the 12 September, 1944 his brother was aboard a Japanese transport vessel which was sunk by an American submarine. As a result of saving multiple lives, his brother Charles was awarded the Albert Medal. His citation reads as follows:- 1944 12 September 1944 Stoker 2nd Class Charles Pethebridge RANR, Australian prisoner of war on board the Japanese SS Rakuyo Maru, carrying 1317 Australian and British POWs from Singapore, it is believed to Formosa. Sailing in convoy, torpedoed and sunk by US submarine Sealion II in the South China Sea on 12 September 1944 (not the 22nd as listed in some sources). Some 1159 POWs were lost, the few survivors being picked up by the Japanese and by the returning US submarines, including 54 by USS Sealion II. Stoker Pethebridge saved the lives of other POWs in the sea at the eventual cost of his own. Posthumously awarded Albert Medal, gazetted 17 July 1945. The KING has been graciously pleased to approve the following Award: Albert Medal in Bronze (Posthumous). Stoker Second Class Charles Alexander PETHEBRIDGE, R.A.N.R., W.2164. For gallantry in saving life at sea at the cost of his own. When the ship on which he was a passenger was torpedoed, Stoker Pethebridge got away with twenty others on a raft. During the ordeal which followed Pethebridge left this raft on several occasions, without a life‑belt, to go to the help of those who through physical weaknesses could not pre­vent themselves from slipping into the sea. The strain of this merciful work upon himself was such that he could not carry on, and during the night which followed the sinking of the ship, he himself disappeared. His citation is listed in the Naval History Homepage. According to a family friend (Elizabeth MOIR) the Albert Medal belonging to Charles Alexander PETHEBRIDGE is missing. Obviously, John PETHEBRIDGE would like to know where this medal is located. If anybody has any knowledge of the whereabouts of the missing Albert Medal, could they please contact the Medals Gone Missing Administrator.
