WW1 Single Medals
1914-15 Star To A Lieutenant (Later Major) - Named to Middleton
A 1914-15 Star awarded to Lieutenant (later Major), James Middleton, who served with the Royal Engineers.
Middleton had earnt a commission in the Royal Engineers before the war. According to 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 with this listing), Middleton landed at Gallipoli on the 28th May 1915. Following the Gallipoli Campaign, Middleton was made ‘Acting Major’ as shown in the London Gazette entry that can be viewed by clicking on here.
He also received a British War Medal and Victory Medal and according to the medal roll, which can be viewed by clicking on here, (again if you have access to Ancestry) these medals are engraved to a Major.
The details of his award are as follows:
1914-15 Star Named To LIEUT. J. MIDDLETON. R.E.
After the war in Europe ended, Middleton reverted to the rank of Captain as shown in the London Gazette entry that can be viewed by clicking on here. This was undertaken so that he could stay in the Royal Engineers and take up a post in India as Commander of the 2nd Queen Victoria’s Madras Sappers & Miners. Details of this unit can also be viewed by clicking on here.
His assignment to this unit is also noted on the back of his Medal Index Card, as is the fact that Middleton’s address is C/O Grundy’s Bank, an institution that specialised in taking care of the finances of those living and working in India.
Middleton served throughout WW2 and took part in action including North Africa and Italy. I would not be surprised if he had been awarded other Campaign Medals not related to either WW1 or WW2.
