WW1 1914/15 Star, War and Victory medals.

The WW1 1914-15 Star was awarded to any member of the British forces, who served in any theatre of war between 5th August 1914 and 31st December 1915, except those who already qualified for the 1914 star.
The medal was never awared on its own ... recipients would also be awarded the British war medal and the Victory medal.

The British war medal was awarded to officers and men who completed at least 28 days service either on operational duties in a theatre of war, or who entered overseas service between 5th August 1914 and 11th November 1918. This was later extended to include services in Russia and Siberia in 1919-20. The medal was automatically awarded in the event of death on active service before the completion of this period.

The Victory medal was awarded to anyone who was mobilised in any service and who entered a theatre of war between 5th August 1914 and 11th November 1918. It was never awarded singly. To receive it, you must also have been awarded at least one of the 1914 star, the 1914-15 star or the British war medal.

These three medals were affectionately known as Pip (1914-15 star), Squeak (British war medal) and Wilfred (Victory medal).

Both the War and the Victory medals were engraved/stamped with the recipient's service number, rank, name and regiment round the edge.  These details  are stamped on the back of the 1914 and 1914-15 stars.

These three medals are correctly named to "5-2497 Pte. A.H. Wilson North'D Fus." - a private in the Northumberland Fusiliers.

All medals are full size, and measure approximately 3.5 cm (1.5") in diameter.
The medals have been mounted on a card, along with the Northumberland fusiliers insignia. There is also a copy of his medal entitlement documentation.

For condition, please study photos.
