Medals- Charles Bonshor. RNVR


Recommended Posts

I bought these medals, cap badge, photograph and “Manual of Prayers” a couple of days ago. All the items were together and I strongly believe the pieces are connected. Written on the side of both medals is B.Z. 5755  G.BONSHOE  ORD. R.N.V.R.

The surname is certainly not common to my area. If there’s a G. Bonshoe family member out there looking for their relative’s medals please let me know.

The medals were issued to Ordinary Seaman Charles Alfred BONSHOR (Bristol Z/5755)  but he is incorrectly named on the RNVR Medal Roll as BOUSHOR.

It is an officer's cap badge and not associated with this man's WW1 service.

Thanks. I’ve had a closer look with a magnifying glass and the medal has the name G. Bonshoe. I did think that an unusual name and the Bristol Z/5755 confirms incorrectly named. I’ll change the Title to Charles Bonshor.
