    Default 1914 15 star medal Pte. R. Astbury R. Welsh Fusiliers

    Arrived today, part of a broken trio but I did not have a 14-15 star in my collection. It has its original ribbon which is always best IMHO.

    Named to Private R. Astbury of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, service # 24568.

    Hi Ade,

    no I don't as I don't have ancestry, so if you can find it and post it that would be very much appreciated.

    Cool Ade, I'll have a look to see which Bn went to the Balkans in 1915.

    Probably part of the 11th service Bn, which went via France to Salonika at the matching dates. More research might change this.

    I am puzzled as to why the medal card states that he entered the Balkans theater in early September whereas the first Divisions to arrive on the Salonika front did so in October, with many units coming straight from Gallipoli. I'm not sure how they count entry into theater. Or maybe it was just a typo? Anyway, nice medal Jerry.

    Indeed mate, a bit of a quandary on that, but they went via France on the dates shown above, so maybe if they were just in transit they got it mixed up.

    Hi Jerry, nice medal. You'll be interested to know that he was a POW, captured at Serre on 13 November 1916, with 10 RWF. He was repatriated at end of the war, but died of illness, aged 24, 12 June 1920.

    Here are his pension records.

    Cheers, Tom
