    This may be my last purchase for a while as Iv'e just found out I have been made redundant Its bit of a selection including two Christmas 1914 tobacco tins, one of which still has the original tobacco and cigarette's. There are also accompanying medals. It comes from an old friend who knows Iv'e had my eye on it for a while.

    I "fell" on this group about 18 months back ..
    It was residing in a tobacco tin in an engineering workshop !!

    ... Boer War with the South Staffs, re-enlisted WW1 with the HLI.

    The MM / Belgian CDG was for the 3rd Battle of Ypres ...
    Then he was busted down from Sgt ...
    .. And later, the soldier was taken POW, dying in captivity in Oct 1918.
    (Buried in Hamburg.)

    On his MIC, his VM for some reason was "returned to barracks"

    Excellent find Jim , what Regiment is the trio to ?
    The gates of hell were opened and we accepted the invitation to enter" 26/880 Lance Sgt, Edward Dyke. 26th Bn Northumberland Fusiliers , ( 3rd Tyneside Irish )

    1st July 1916

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    House Carles at the Battle of Hastings
