WW2 Medal Groups
WW2 Medal Group To A Major, Royal Berkshire Regiment - Attributed To Kisby
A WW2 medal group awarded to Major Frederick Ronald Kisby, who served with the Royal Berkshire Regiment. The medals were posted to Kisby directly from the War Office at Droitwich, to an address at 29 Burnham Way, Ealing, London.
The details of his awards are as follows:
1939-45 Star unnamed as issued.
Burma Star with Pacific Bar unnamed as issued.
Defence Medal unnamed as issued.
British War Medal unnamed as issued.

The medals are supplied loose and come with their original ribbons and wax packets along with a Burma Star Association lapel badge and Royal Berkshire Regiment cap badge. In addition there is a vast collection of photographs mainly of military personnel and locations from the Far-East.
During WW2, both the 1st and 2nd Battalions of the Royal Berkshire Regiment served in the Far-East, including India and Burma. Details of their actions and activities can be viewed by clicking on here. Kisby was commissioned as a 2nd Lieutenant into the Royal Berkshire Regiment in November 1939, his London Gazette entry noting the event can be viewed by clicking on here.
In November 1943 he was made a full Lieutenant, again his London Gazette entry which confirms that this was an emergency commission backdated to April 1942 can be viewed by clicking on here. Other promotions followed and his final Gazette entry was in July 1949, when Kisby, as a Captain, (also Honourable Major), was awarded the Territorial Efficiency Medal, the entry can be viewed by clicking on here.
I’ve assumed that Kisby was also a member of the Burma Star Association, details of which can be viewed by clicking on here.
