WORLD WAR ONE GROUPS.

1914-15 TRIOS

13/949 TPR J H SAUNDERS NZEF

DIED AS A PRISONER OF THE TURKS

James, from Russell in the Bay of Islands, was taken Prisoner of War with his officer Lt Allsop on 3 August 1916 during the Sinai Campaign. They failed to return and a note was later found on 8 August by Lt Allsop that he had just left the area as a prisoner of the Turks.


As one of just a handful of NZ WW1 POW's this medal set is historic and of importance to NZ. He is commemorated in the Church at Russell. The medal trio has an MID emblem affixed however we can find no record of him being entitled to this oakleaf - which has been present for a very long time.


The treatment of POW's by the Turks was especially brutal and James died of sickness as a POW 26 February 1917 at Ankora, Turkey


Far rarer than a Gallipoli casualty or even a Middle East casualty and the only NZ Middle East POW set I have ever seen for sale.

VICTORY MEDAL

A VICTORY MEDAL TO A 1914 CASUALTY OFFICER MENTIONED IN DESPATCHES


A very interesting Victory Medal to 2 LIEUT T A KNOTT. The medal is missing its suspension ring and the fixing. This can be repaired.


Thomas Albert Knott was born in 1879. He enlisted in the Manchester Regt in 1901 and served as an instructor until he transferred to the 1st Royal Berkshire Regt in 1906.


They embarked for WW1 on 13 August and served at Mons. By this stage he was a C Q M S. In the advance on Mons he saved the Batns transport column and for this was promoted to 2nd Lt. At Gheluvelt on 8 November 1914 he was the only officer left standing.


On 13 November 1914 having brought in and repositioned machine guns under heavy fire he was hit whilst entering his observation position. He was seriously wounded in the thigh and died 2 weeks later. His NCO won the DCM and had Knott lived he would have also been decorated. He did received a Mention in Despatches posthumously.


A splendid medal to a fighting officer. This medal was purchased in England recently at an antique store in the Cotswalds.
