    The commemoration includes the service of Henry Craxford
    The British War Medal; The Victory Medal; 1914-15 Star
    The British War Medal; The Victory Medal; 1914-15 Star
    Left: The British War Medal (silver, 1.42 inches in diameter) was instituted to record the successful conclusion of the First World War, but it was extended to cover the period 1919 - 20 and service in mine clearing at sea as well as participation in operations in North and South Russia, the Eastern Baltic, Siberia, the Black Sea and Caspian. The reverse shows a horseman (St. George, naked), armed with a short sword (an allegory of the physical and mental strength which achieves victory over Prussianism). The horse tramples on the Prussian shield and the skull and cross-bones. Just off-centre, near the right upper rim, is the sun of Victory. The dates 1914 and 1918 appear in the left and right fields respectively.

    Centre: The Victory Medal was awarded to all ranks of the fighting forces, to civilians under contract, and others employed with military hospitals who actually served on the establishment of a unit in a theatre of war between 05 August 1914 and 11 November 1918 (inclusive). It was also awarded to members of the British Naval mission to Russia 1919 - 1920 and for mine clearance in the North Sea between 11 November 1918 and 30 November 1919. This medal was never issued alone, it was issued to those that already had the 1914 or 1914 - 15 Stars and most of those who had the British War Medal. It is often known as the Allied War Medal because the same basic design and double rainbow ribbon were adopted by thirteen other Allied nations.

    Right: The star was awarded to all who saw service an any theatre of war against the central powers between 05 August 1914 and 31 December 1915 except those eligible for the 1914 Star. The reverse is plain.
