Mons Star medal group awarded to 9097 (later 2G/26176) Private (later Corporal) Michael Craddock of the 2nd Battalion Royal Inniskillings Fusiliers.
The details of his awards are as follows:

British War Medal and Victory Medal named to 9097. PTE. M. CRADDOCK., R. INNIS. FUS.
The medals are court mounted and come with a set of matching miniature medals that are also swing mounted and contain their original ribbons as well as an accompanying pin mounted medal bar containing a rose.
Included with this listing is a printed copy of the Medal Index Card which can also be viewed by clicking on here (if you have access to Ancestry) which confirms his clasp and roses and references his arrival in France on the 23rd August. I have been unable to identify any service records relating to this man.
The 2nd Battalion was moved to Norfolk in August 1914 and formed part of the 12th Brigade/4th Division and sailed to Le Harve and disembarked on the 22nd - 23rd August 1914 and engaged the enemy at the The Battle of Le Cateau on the 26th August 1914 details of which can be viewed by clicking on here.
The Division had to fight this action without its Mounted Troops, Heavy Battery, Divisional Ammunition Column, Field Companies RE, Signals Company RE, Field Ambulances RAMC and Divisional Train, which were all still en-route from England. Afterwards, they were engaged in the Battle of the Marne, the Battle of the Aisne and the Battle of Armentières 1914.
Subsequent to this, they transferred to the 5th Division. The unit history can be viewed by clicking on here, the actions undertaken by the 4th Division can be viewed by clicking on here and the 5th by clicking on here - these accounts include an order of battle that includes 2nd Battalion Royal Inniskillings Fusiliers.
