WW1 MILITARY MEDAL GROUP FOR BRAVERY TO SARGEANT GROVES OF THE QUEENS ROYAL WEST SURREY REGIMENT.
This set of four medals are parade mounted and are complete with original paperwork and photographs relating to Sargeant Groves. The set comprises, the military medal for bravery awarded to Groves when he was a Lance Corporal, the WW1 war medal & victory medal are both named to Sergeant Groves and the WW2 defense medal is un-named as issued. The documents comprise, a letter to L.Cpl Grove of the 10th Battalion of the Queens Regiment from a Major General and his divisional commander and it is dated 1917, congratulating Groves on rescuing some wounded soldiers during a trench raid (this is almost certainly the reason for his award of the Military Medal). Certificate for Soldiers on leave. Certificate for Soldiers on leave and train ticket pass. Certificate of demobilization dated 1919 and giving his military history including his award of the Military Medal. A 1930's photograph of a WW1 veterans parade, Sargeant Groves is in the center wearing his WW1 medals on his suite jacket and holding what is probably a flag pole. 1950's photograph of a military parade, Sargeant Groves is again wearing his parade mounted medals but now the set also includes his WW2 defense medal. A really nice set of bravery medals and the documentation makes it even more interesting. [Condition: Near Mint]
