A.H.WHITE

A.H.WHITE

Medal Type: WW1 - Death Plaque a.k.a Memorial Plaque

Service No: 1497
Unit No: 5

Corps/Service:
Pioneers

Country: Australia
I am searching for the Memorial Plaque (also known as a 'Death Plaque' or Dead Man's Penny) which was commissioned in memory of Alfred Henry WHITE. Alfred was an Enlishmans who served in the Boer War (and was awarded the Queens South Africa Medal) and First World War Medals (subsequently awarded the 1914-1915 Star, British War Medal and Victory Medal). His service number during the Boer War was 3565 and he served with the Kings Royal Rifle Corps (K.R.R.C). He was in Australia when the First World War broke out and joined the 3rd Infantry Battalion in August 1914. The First World War Embarkation Roll indicates that he embarked on HMAT Euripides on the 20th of October, 1914 from Sydney. He landed at Gallipoli on the 25th of April, 1915 and also fought in the battle of Lone Pine. After Gallipoli, he was temporarily transferred to the 55th Battalion but then posted to the 5th Pioneer Battalion. He was with this unit in France, when he was killed in action on the 30th of October, 1916 by shell fire. Whilst he was buried, his grave was later lost during further fighting and subsequently, his name is recorded on the Villers-Bretonneux Memorial. The CWGC (Commonwealth War Graves Commission) records indicate that his full name was Alfred Henry WHITE, however this is not mentioned at all on his service record. It is therefore assumed that his Memorial Plaque (Dead Man's Penny) is scribed with his full name. The Memorial Plaque was forwarded to his mother who lived in Islington, London England. This medal set was purchased on ebay Australia on the 14th of December, 2010 for $1,762.00 The medals are NOT FOR GENERAL SALE, however - consideration will be given to sell them back to a descendant of Alfred WHITE upon proof of relationship. I am seeking his Memorial Plaque to re-unite it with his medals. There were three other men by this name who were issued identical plaques.

I am searching for the missing war medals of Corporal (later Sergeant) George William TAYLOR, DCM, MM. Prior to the First World War, he served in South Africa during the Boer War and subsequently earnt the Queen's South Africa Medal (Q.S.A). The First World War Embarkation Roll indicates that he left Sydney on the 6th of September, 1915 aboard the HMAT Ballarat (A70) as a Sapper with the 1st Field Company Engineers (1 F.C.E). He served in France and apart from the Military Medal (MM), he was also awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM). Sadly, he was killed in action and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) records indicate that he died on the 19th of August, 1918. He was buried in the Mont Huon Military Cemetery, Le Treport. Any assistance in helping me to recover these missing war medals, or at least, learn of their whereabouts, would be greatly appreciated.

I am looking for my great grandfather's Medal of Honor. His name and title was Colonel Edmund BUTLER. The missing medal was awarded to him for conspicuous gallantry during the battle of Wolf Mountain in 1877. My grandmother has searched for it for about 40 years now with no luck. If anyone has seen this missing Medal Of Honour or knows how to find it, I would appreciate any help. It is possible that this medal in now in the hands of a private collector or even a museum. If this is the case and the current owner does not wish to part with the medal, we would simply appreciate to know where it is and be assured that our great grandfather's Medal Of Honour is in safe hands. Yours gratefully. David (Great Grandson)

Country: Australia
I am trying to find the following medals for my Uncle Sgt Clement Everly BRADFORD and would greatly appreciate their return or information as to their known whereabouts. Clement was raised in Murray Bridge, South Australia. He enlisted with the 10th Battalion, 9th reiforcements and the First World War Embarkation Roll indicates that he left Adelaide on board the (A15) HMAT Star Of England on the 21st of September, 1915. He then meet up with his brother Sidney BRADFORD in Alexandria who had returned from action in Gallipoli. Both Sidney and Clem were transferred to the 50th battalion as part of the doubling of the AIF and transferred to the Western Front in June 1916. Clem went on to be awarded the military medal and bar in 1918. Clem died from influenza and pneumonia in October 1918 and is buried at Harefield Parish Churchyard, England. My Grandmother Elsie Bradford always told me stories of her brothers and proudly had Clems photo and military medal on display. The medal group of Clement Everly BRADFORD was seperated at that stage with the military medal in a A4 frame with citation Unfortunatley on my Grandmothers death in 1983 that was the last time I saw the medal. Citation Sgt Clement Everly Bradford Military Medal On the 12th August 1918, near BRAY-sur-SOMME this N.C.O with one man carried out a daring daylight patrol and located the positions of several hostile machine guns. During the night 12th /13th August he took out a fighting patrol of 15men which he led with exceptional courage and dash. Against strong opposition he captured a hostile machine gun with some of his crew. Bar to M.M On 13th September 1918 On the 13th September 1918 near LE VERGUIER N.W of St QUENTIN, this N.C.O showed conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty whilst in charge of his platoon in a night advance. The platoon came under heavy machine gun fire from the enemy who were strongly entrenched, but this N.C.O with determination and setting a high example of bravery, led his men forward and gained the objective. The enemy then counter-attacked him strongly and although he had but few men his determination, fearlessness and cheerfulness in keeping his men together was undoubtedly the cause of the platoon being able to hold on and consolidate the position. As a result of this operation, heavy casualties were inflicted on the enemy and two machine guns captured. This N.C.O has already been recommended for a M.M

Service No: 24782
Unit No: 1

Corps/Service:
Air Force/Flying Corps

Country: Australia
I am searching for the missing Second World War medals awarded to Sergeant Robert John MOORE, who was in the RAAF with the Service number 24782. He was born on the 17th of August, 1921 at Brisbane and his next of kin was Joyce MOORE. The World War 2 Nominal Roll indicates that he enlisted into the Royal Australian Air Force on the 7th of February, 1941 and discharged on the 25th of January, 1946. Based on his length of service, I am not sure if he was entitled to any other medals, besides the 1939-1945 War Medal and the 1939-1945 Australia Service Medal. If you are in possession of any war medals under Robert's name or service number, I would be most grateful if you could make contact with me through this website.

I am searching for the missing First World War Medals of my Great Grandfather, John Christian MOORE. The First World War Embarkation Roll states that he left Sydney the second time aboard RMS Karmala on the 3rd of February, 1917. He embarked as part of the 1st Australian Light Horse Regiment. So he was entitled to the British War Medal and the Victory Medal. My dad had these medals displayed in his home on the Gold Coast back in the 1990's, but they have not been seen for some time. Any assistance that you may offer for us to have these missing war medals returned would be greatly appreciated.

Country: Australia
I am searching for the missing First World War Medals of my Great Grandfather, Alfred Ernest SINCLAIR. He had originally enlisted in 1914 under the service number 201; however he was wounded on Gallipoli and invalided back to Australia. He then re-enlisted and was sent back over to Europe under the Servcie Number 4125. So I am not sure what service number his medals may be stamped under. The First World War Embarkation Roll states that he left Sydney the second time aboard HMAT Wiltshire (A18) on the 2nd of February, 1918. So it may only be the British War Medal and the Victory Medal which are stamped under his second service number (though his 1914-1915 Star should be stamped with his service number 201). My dad had these medals displayed in his home on the Gold Coast back in the 1990's, but they have not been seen for some time. Any assistance that you may offer for us to have these medals returned would be greatly appreciated.
