WW1 Single Medals
WW1 Territorial Force War Medal, Devonshire Regiment - Named To Brock
A Territorial Force War Medal awarded to 1730, Private (later Lance Corporal) William Brock, who served with the 5th Battalion Devonshire Regiment, (later as 205416 with the Bedfordshire Regiment).
Neither Brock’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 he served in, although his Silver War Badge Entry, which can be viewed by clicking on here, (again if you have Ancestry), does state that he served between April 1914 and June 1919.
The details of his award are as follows:
Territorial Force War Medal named to 1730 PTE. W. BROCK. DEVON. R.
I have not been able to locate any service records relating to this man. However, the 5th Battalion the Devonshire Regiment was mobilised upon the outbreak of war, serving together in the Devon and Cornwall Brigade of the Wessex Division.
In August 1914, the Wessex Division was sent to India, arriving in late September, to replace Regular Army battalions undertaking garrison duties and it subsequently spent the next two years at Multan, supplying drafts to units in operational theatres.
In March 1915, the 5th Devonshire’s left India to serve in Egypt. I suspect that because Brock was not issued with an Inter-Allied Victory Medal (just the British War Medal), that he was sent home sick instead, before the regiment arrived in Egypt. This may account for why he moved to the Bedfordshire Regiment which - in the main - undertook service in the UK and why he was later issued with a Silver War Badge.
