1. Royal Navy Long Service & Good Conduct Medal. 205365 Petty Officer Patrick Cleary, HMS Roxburgh. From Cork, Ireland. Most of the war he served on HMS Roxburgh and therefore save some action. As an example: HM Roxburgh captured a German merchantman on 6 August 1914. Refitted January 1915; hit by torpedo from U 39 on 20 June 1915 but escaped with serious damage to bow. After repairs completed in April 1916 served in Norwegian waters. To North America and West Indies Station from September 1916 until Armistice, and while escorting a convoy off Northern Ireland on 12 February 1918 rammed and sank U 89. His Victory medal was up on sale on ebay just a month ago, so perhaps even partial re-unite is possible.
Price : £95

4. British War medal and Victory medal. 152846 Gunner Sidney URMSON, Royal Artillery.
I haven't done much research on him (just Medal Index Card that confirms that this pair was his full entitlement and that he served in Royal Field Artillery and medal roll page). But because unusual name I am sure this will be easy and interesting research.
5. Victory Medal. Captain Francis Haywood FLOYD, Royal Engineers. Landed in France June 1916 and became entitled to British War Medal and Victory Medal. During the war he was Mentioned in Despatches and therefore he was actually entitled to wear a MID device (oakleaf) on the Victory Medal ribbon (missing). He relinquish his service December 1921.
