I picked this one up today, knowing it was erased and renamed but it was very cheap for a Star medal and still had an original ribbon on it.
Obviously and badly renamed to Cpl. Victor H. Phillips 856 Royal Engineers, you can still see a full stop from the original naming.
I at first failed to find him on ancestry but after some help on his MIC I found his medal roll. Both only show entitlement to the BWM & VM, no star, so either he awarded it to himself or a family member assumed it was missing and added it.
an interesting addition to my great war medals.
