Remembered Today:

Royal Navy Reserve (or RNVR?) Medal Group


Recommended Posts

Tomorrow I am helping out at a World War 1 Discovery Day in Chester. It is sort of a "Bring - Share - Ask" type of event.

I thought I'd take along this miniature group of medals as an example of what can be learnt from just a group of medals.

I bought the group for £1 in a junk shop in Chandlers Ford in 1975. I thought that the medals deserved more respect than being thrown in the £1 bargain box. So I have no details about the recipient.

However I have deduced that he was probably:

1. Royal Navy Reserve or Royal Navy Volunteer Reserve (Reserve Long Service and Good Conduct Medal)

2. Long serving rating or petty officer (Reserve Long Service and Good Conduct Medal)

3. Promoted to Warrant Officer or Lieutenant during WW1 (DSC)

4. Served in a theatre of war in 1914-15 (1914-15 Star)

5. Won the DSC for gallantry at sea (DSC)

6. Survived the war by many years (wear to medal ribbons & box)

Have I missed anything?



PS No matter what I do I can't get this photo right way up. Apologies to all.
