Recently acquired this unusual British War Medal issued to R. Pluymackers.

Mse. Renee Pluymackers lived at 9 Rue Lulay, Liege with her mother Charlotte and father Joseph (executed) both also entitled to British War Medals. MIC confirms and extract-listing those executed.

I understand these can be confirmed in Belgium along with what Belgian medals were awarded. Can anyone tell me to whom I should write in order to do this? Of course any other information would be greatly appreciated too. Thanks so much in advance.

Two beautiful groups; you're very lucky to have them. I suspect that the woman whose BWM I have must have had a similar group as your Belgian group. I would love to confirm what Belgian medals she was entitled to. Do you know a way of doing that? Thanks!

Hello azeoman,

If I were you I would try this address: dirk.vanginderhuysen@mil.be ( Adjudant-Chef,Algemene Directie Human Resources,

Divisie Personeel,Ondersectie Notariaat,Eervolle Onderscheidingen) with all the info of that lady you have. I cannot promise you a positive answer but, you have nothing to loose and it's free.

Good luck

Jef

€ 200 is not such a bad price Chris. Is about regular I think.

The one that was sold at 900 GBP on ebay was to an executed spy who also received the Medal in the Order of the British Empire which obviously adds a premium. Nevertheless 900 GBP is still an extraordinary price.

I would not expect too much from the above mentioned address. Don't forget we're talking about civilians here not military personnel. Chances that the military have records on them are very small.

"Standard" the Belgian Agents also received the Belgian WWI Commemorative with silver crown on the ribbon and the Belgian victory medal. Individual cases also received one or two other decorations.

Kind regards from Flanders

Oh yes, I must deny that father Joseph Pluymackers was executed though. He did indeed die during or shortly after the war, but he was not executed!

Hello Love4 History,

I've come across this and Monsieur J. Pluymackers of Liege and who was an agent in "section 2" is listed as one of the 180 who died 154 of whom where Belgian.

London Gazette : Volontaires

La London Gazette publie dans 3 suppléments de 1919 (1er Août, 29 Août, 15 Septembre) les noms de 2725 volontaires (essentiellement Belges, Français, parfois avec confusion des nationalités, et quelques Britanniques) attachés à l'Armée Britannique en France, section I, section II et C.O.A. (qui connait la signification de ces catégories ?) avec mention "Died" réservée à ceux qui ont été exécutés.

J'ai repris les noms et localités rectifiés des erreurs d'OCR mais sans corriger l'orthographe d'origine. Certains figurent dans la liste des 52 fusillés de Gand de la page Alfred PAGNIEN.

On y trouve :

  • 1982 Hommes et 743 Femmes,
  • 2498 Belges, 224 Français et 3 sujets Britanniques,
  • 130 prêtres, religieux et religieuses,
  • 6 Valenciennois ou réputés tels :
  • 180 sont décédés dont
    • 154 de nationalité Belge.
