W.H.C.BANKS

W.H.C.BANKS

Medal Type: WW1 - World War 1 Pair

Service No: 3684
Unit No: 46

Corps/Service:
Infantry

Country: Australia
I am searching for the First World War medals (British War Medal + Victory Medal) awarded to Sergeant William Henry Clarence BANKS. The 1914-1915 Star has been discovered by employees of 'Lifeline' Canberra during a book sale and a next of kin sought . Sergeant William Henry Clarence BANKS was born on the 16th of January, 1879 in Hobart, Tasmania. He served with 56th Infantry (Yarra Borderers) before the First World War and attained the rank of 'Colour Sergeant'. His service record as per the National Archives of Australia indicate that he enlisted into the AIF on the 13th of July, 1915. There is a discrepancy with regards to the First World War Embarkation Roll, in that his service number has incorrectly be recorded as 3084 (which appears to be a typigraphical error). William embarked aboard HMAT Ceramic (A40) on the 23rd of November, 1915 and arrived overseas, too late to serve in the Gallipoli campaign. As part of the expansion and restructure of the AIF, William was transferred to the 46th Infantry Battalion and arrived in France in time for the battle for Pozieres. It is clear that his deployment, in and out of the trenches took its toll as William was classified ill, suffering from shell shock in November of 1916. Bouts of illness with tonsillitis and laryngitis resulted in his return to Australia and discharge on the 30th of November, 1917. If you have these missing war medals or know of their whereabouts, please contact the Medals Gone Missing Administrator so that the medal set can be re-united. Alternatively, you may contact Lifeline Canberra who may be contacted on telephone 6204 6409 (contact Leah Busacker, Mike Zissler or Pamela Andrews).

Country: Australia
I am searching for the missing First World War medals of my grandfather Alexander Edward SHORLAND. The missing medals (consisting of the 1914-1915 Star, British War Medal and Victory Medal) were in the possession of my father before he passed away last year. My father mentioned that he couldnt find them 6 months before he died. According to the First World War Embarkation Roll, Alexander Edward SHORLAND was a Foreman Artificer Sergeant Major with the Australian Flying Corps and he embarked from Port Melbourne on the 20th of April, 1915 aboard RMS Morea. I only saw the medals once but I think there were 3 medals in all, one with his name and the number "1" on the back. ***NOTE*** MEDALS RETURNED TO FAMILY - NO LONGER MISSING

Unit No: 12

Corps/Service:

Country: United Kingdom
I am searching for the war service medals of my grandfather, Silas DANBY. These missing medals consist of:- The Distinguished Service Order, the Military Cross, 1914-1915 Star, British War Medal, Victory Medal and the 1939-1945 War Medal. My grandfather, Major Silas DANBY D.S.O. M.C. (though awarded the rank of Temporary Lieutenant Colonel) served with the 12th Battalion of the Manchester Regiment. As these medals are a very substantial set, combined with the fact that his name is quite unusual - I am hoping that somebody out there knows of their whereabouts and is prepared to tell my family that they are safe or better still, be willing to help us to recover these missing war medals. One or more of the medals may be inscribed with the numbers L.G. 31085 or E/1420, but this is not confirmed. Any assistance that you are prepared to offer would be deeply appreciated. The photograph to which this listing relates is of the miniatures of Silas DANBY which are still in our possession.

I am searching for the First World War medals of Corporal James Alexander HALL. This consists of a World War 1 Pair (British War Medal & Victory Medal) awarded to Corporal 1731A James Alexander Hall. The First World War Embarkation Roll indicates that he left Adelaide on the 11th of January, 1916 aboard HMAT Borda (A30) as part of the 32nd Battalion. Sadly, he was killed in action on the KIA 8th August 1918. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission records (C.W.G.C) indicate that he is buried at the Cerisy-Gailly Military Cemetery. There is a slight discrepancy regarding his service number, in that the letter 'A' is recorded against some of his records. Hence this listing has been duplicated to reflect this.
