Medal Type: WW1 - 1914-1915 Star Medal Trio
Service No: 10119
Unit No: 4
Country: United Kingdom
I am looking for any First World War medals, awards or memorabilia for my great grandfather; Private Christopher O'HARE who served with the 4th Battalion of the King's Liverpool Regiment. All of his war service medals are missing. According to the CWGC (Commonwealth War Graves Commission) records, he was was killed in action in France on the 19 May, 1915. As such, a Memorial Plaque (also colloquially known as a 'Death Plaque' or 'Dead Man's Penny' would have been commissioned in his name. He should also have been awarded the war medals:- 1914-1915 Star, British War Medal and Victory Medal. I am not sure if he arrived in France before the end of 1914, so he may even have been awarded the Mons Star in lieu of the 1914-1915 Star. If anybody has any information regarding this, I would appreciate your help. Christopher O'HARE has no known grave and his name is commemorated on the memorial wall at Le Tournet Cemetery on the south side of the Bethune-Armentieres main road.
