WW2 Medal Groups

WW2 Medal Group, R.A.O.C - Attributed To Barnes

2 Month(s) Left
Price: £95.00

A WW2 medal group awarded to Mr G. E. R. (?) Barnes, who served with the Royal Army Ordinance Corps during WW2. The medals were posted to him at an address noted as 8 Ockham Drive, Orpington, Kent. The address (no 8) was not included on the 1939 Register, so I cannot confirm the details of this man and I have done no further research into him.

Given the combination of his awards I think he may have been a regular (so not present on the 1939 Register anyway) before the war and took part in the Norway Campaign, or was present with the BEF in France in 1940 - which given the unit is the more likely. Either way, it seems he did not serve outside of the UK for the remainder of the war.

It appears from the medal box that he served with the ROAC, the history of which can be viewed by clicking on here.

The details of his awards are as follows:

1939-45 Star unnamed as issued.

Defence Medal unnamed as issued.

British War Medal unnamed as issued.
