WW1 Single Medals
WW1 Territorial Force War Medal, 3rd Wessex Brigade, Royal Field Artillery - Named To Dyer
A Territorial Force War Medal awarded to Lieutenant, (later Captain), George Spencer Dyer, who served with the Royal Field Artillery.
Neither Dyer’s Medal Index Card or medal roll entries, which can be viewed by clicking on here, on here and on here, (if you have access to Ancestry), although a paper copy of the MIC will be provided with this listing, give any indication as to which theatre of war that he served in.
However, his Gazette entry describing his promotion from ‘cadet’ to 2nd lieutenant, (which can be viewed by clicking on here), shows that he was initially assigned to the 3rd Wessex Brigade, Royal Field Artillery in June 1913.
The details of his award are as follows:
Territorial Force War Medal named to LIEUT. G.S. DYER. R.A.
There is quite a lot of information on Ancestry related to Dyer. Details can be viewed by clicking on here. In Summary, he was born in July 1892, and lived in Netherbury, Devon before and after the War.
I have not been able to find any details as to when Dyer enlisted, or when he left the forces, but his records are available at the National Archive and can be obtained by clicking on here.
Dyer took up farming after his service and owned and operated White House Farm, Netherbury (the address shown on the rear of his Medal Index Card). He is also shown on the 1939 Register at the same address, details of which can be viewed by clicking on here, (if you have a subscription to ‘find my past’). Dyer passed away in 1969.
In regards to the 3rd Wessex Brigade, it came under the command of the 2nd Wessex Division (later re-named the 45th Division) and sailed for India with the division on 12th December 1914.
In 1916, the brigade was re-named as the 227th Brigade, Royal Field Artillery, Territorial Force and was later subsequently re-named as the 1102nd, 1103rd and 1104th Batteries.
In April 1917, 1102nd Battery was broken up and 1104th Battery left to join 216th Brigade of the 43rd (Wessex) Division. The brigade moved to Aden in March 1919.
