A Great War Pair to a Private in the Worcestershire Regiment, Killed in Action.
- Source: eBay UK
On offer is the Desirable Great War Pair of original issue, full size genuine medals and original box of issue and what I believe to be the original lengths of ribbon, consisting of the British War Medal 1914-20, the Allied Victory Medal 1914-19 to 24197 Private LEONARD WALTER, 9th Battalion the Worcestershire Regiment. Who was sadly Killed in Action on 25th January 1917 in Mesopotamia while taking part in the last desperate offensive to relieve the seige at Kut-Al-Amara.Sold with a copy of his Medal Index Card and Commonwealth War Graves Commission Roll of Honour and Memorial Scroll printed from Soldiers Died in the Great War. The medals have not been worn and are in what I would clasify as Extremely Fine condition, however the box of issue is in a rather tatty state as you may expect from something kept in a draw but often looked at by a grieving next of kin. The medals are correctly impressed around the rim as follows:- 1) British War Medal (24197 PTE. L. WALTER. WORC. R.) 2) Allied Victory Medal ( 24197 PTE. L. WALTER. WORC. R. ) The medals will be well packaged and sent by Royal Mail 1st Class Special Delivery, fully insured and tracked the next working day after payment is received. Alternatively they can be collected in person by mutual agreement.
