WW1 Medal Groups

WW1 Family Medal Group, VAD & Officer, Hampshire Regiment - Named To The Latham’s

3 Month(s) Left
Price: £350.00

A WW1 family medal group awarded to Mr and Mrs P. M. S. Latham.

The details of their awards are as follows:

Lieutenant Peter M. S. Latham:

British War Medal and Victory Medal named to LIEUT. P. M. S. LATHAM.

Defence Medal unnamed as issued - I’m assuming that this was for service in the ‘Home Guard’ as this listing also contains a Defence Medal Home Secretary Award Slip and enamel Home Guard Lapel Badge, so it is also assumed that he joined the Home Guard during WW2.

Mary K. Latham:

British War Medal and Victory Medal named to M. K. LATHAM. V.A.D.

Both sets of medals are loose and come with a matching set of contemporary miniature medals which are both swing mounted with their original ribbons. Also included with this listing is a paper copy of both their Medal Index Cards and a number of books relating to VAD service and a number of VAD/Red Cross badges.


Mary Latham served with the Voluntary Aid Detachment during WW1, the history of which can be viewed by clicking on here.

Peter Latham served with the Hampshire Regiment during WW1. I have not been able to determine when Latham earned his commission, or in which battalion that he served. His Medal Index Card which can be viewed by clicking on here (if you have access to Ancestry although a paper copy will be provided), does not indicate in which theatre of war that he served. The history of the Hampshire Regiment, which can be viewed by clicking on here, indicates that the regiment (other than the 1st Battalion) did not have a huge presence in France but served at Gallipoli, Mesopotamia and India.

Latham was promoted to temporary Lieutenant effective from the 1st December 1915, the London Gazette entry can be viewed by clicking on here. Having relinquished his temporary rank, he was promoted to Lieutenant effective from the 2nd July 1917, the London Gazette entries confirming both of these can be viewed by clicking on here and by clicking on here.

He stayed with the regiment until July 1921 when the London Gazette records that he has resigned his commission, the entry can be viewed by clicking on here.
