    A few more, next is a Military Medal (MM) to CQMS John O'Grady 7398 Royal Dublin Fusiliers and 166247 8th battalion Machine Gun Corps(nicknamed the Suicide Club)a native of Westport Co.Mayo,the MM was instituted in 1916 to honour NCO'S and men for individual or associated acts of bravery.Some 115,000 were issued for WW1, unfortunately all citation records were destroyed in WW2 but you sometimes come across them in war diaries,unit histories and newspapers.This is my favourite ww1 medal, simple design but the inscription says it all.

    A very nice collection, and thanks for posting. Too bad so many of the groups or pairs are broken up.
    Your first post, Pte. Meldrum of the Connaught Rangers appeals greatly to me, since he was an "Old Contemptible." I would have thought he would have recieved the Aug.-Nov. clasp to his 1914 Star, especially as he was KIA.

    Thanks BobS,Meldrum's clasp according to his MIC was issued but also appears to have been returned.
    To me a single medal with research is more satisifying than a full group with no hope of research,I feel there is a change in collecting habits and the archaic guideline that you have to have the complete group is receding especially in WW1 related items.Due to the scrapping of vast amounts of silver war medals during the 70's,and the division of medals among family members there are probably more broken than complete groups now , btw I have never come across a collector who would turn up his nose at a single VC,MGS,or Waterloo.
