R.HARRIS

R.HARRIS

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

Service No: 517
Unit No: 2

Corps/Service:
Infantry

Country: Australia
I am seeking the Memorial Plaque (also known as a Dead Man's Penny') of Private Richard HARRIS of the 2nd Infantry Battalion, AIF. It appears that this name "Richard Harris" is in fact an alias. His correct name is stated to be Joseph DOYLE; although why he would enlist under this name is not known. The First World War Embarkation Roll indicates that he left Sydney on the 18th of October, 1914 aboard HMAT Suffolk. This soldier landed at Gallipoli on the 25th of April, 1915 (first day lander) and sadly, he was posted as 'missing' by the 2nd of May. This posting was eventually and officially changed to "Killed In Action" after a court of inquiry. The Commonwealth War Graves records (CWGC) indicate that he has no known grave and his name is recorded on the Lone Pine Memorial at Gallipoli. Any assistance in helping me to recover this missing Death Plaque would be greatly appreciated.

Country: United Kingdom
My family is searching for the First World War Medals of 'Bugler Sergeant' Thomas Edward JONES of the Durham Light Infantry. Thomas served in the 2nd Battalion and the 16th Battalion of the Durham Light Infantry. Thomas Edward enlisted in the 2nd Battalion Durham Light Infantry on the 12th of February 1907. We understand he may have served on garrison duty in Ireland prior to World War 1. According to the original documents, we know he was transferred from the 16th (2nd Reserve) Battalion to Class ā€œVā€ Army Reserve on the 26th of July 1916 after serving with the colours for 1 year and 11 months and the transfer to Army Reserve was completed on the 31st May 1917 at Colchester. Any assistance in helping us to locate these missing war medals would be greatly appreciated.

Headquarters / Command

Country: Australia
I am searching for the First World War medals of Henry Robert SPURRITT of the 10th Infantry Battalion, AIF. The First World War Embarkation Roll actually records his name as being "Henry Robert SPURRITT" and this is supported by his War Service Records on the National Archives of Australia. It is evident that he originally wrote his name as "Robert" and then placed Henry in front of this name as a later addition. Henry Robert SPURRITT also had a brother and father who served during the First World War. Unknown where these medals have gone. I have the Dead Man's Penny (Memorial Plaque or Death Plaque) for Robert and would like to reunite this with his medals. He is also listed on Medals Gone Missing under the name of R.H. SPURRITT or Robert Henry Spurritt.

W.W.STOODLEY

Medal Type: WW1 - 1914-1915 Star Medal Trio

Service No: 7481
Unit No: 13

Corps/Service:
Artillery

Country: Australia
I am searching for the missing war medals of Bombadier Walter William STOODLEY who was born in Brisbane, Queensland in 1890. The National Archives Of Australia indicate that he enlisted into the AIF on the 28th of July, 1915. The First World War Embarkation Roll INCORRECTLY records his name as being Walter William STOODBY (this appears to be as a result of a clerical error during his enlistment). His missing war medals are the 1914-1915 Star, the British War Medal and the Victory Medal. He served with the 5th Field Artillery Brigade in the 13th Battery. Any assistance in helping me to recover these missing medals would be greatly appreciated.
