  • Grenadier Guards Senior NCO Crimea Medal

    A highly-desirable Crimea Medal 1854 with two clasps 'Alma' and 'Sebastopol' awarded to 3291 Sergeant William Mallett, 3rd Battalion Grenadier Guards.

    Correctly named (Officially Impressed) to SERJT W. MALLETT. GRENADIER GDS.

    Note: the relevant Crimea medal rolls for the 3rd Battalion Grenadier Guards (WO 100/25) show that Sergeant William Mallett died at the hospital at Scutari on 21st November 1854 (see page 4 of the original medal roll). It also records that Sergeant Mallett was not only eligible for the Crimea medal but also the 'Alma' clasp (see page 4 on the original roll) and the 'Sebastopol' clasp (see page 98 on the original roll, which also states that the medal was 'Delivered to his widow'). Copies of the relevant rolls accompany the medal.

    It must also be noted that the 'Sebastopol' clasp is not rivetted to the 'Alma' clasp as both sets of lugs have no holes. It would appear that this was the condition of the medal when it was presented to Mallett's widow.

    The 3rd Battalion Grenadier Guards distinguished itself during the Battle of Alma by crossing the river under heavy fire, attacking the commanding heights and capturing a Russian artillery battery. The battalion's casualty rate for this battle was 3 officers and 127 men. During the Crimean War 4 members of the 3rd Battalion won Victoria Crosses

    Correctly named to RM. 21550 G.G. SILLS. MNE. R.M.

After completing basic training at Deal between 1961 and 1962, Marine Sills underwent further training aboard HMS Sheffield (two weeks) and with the SBS at RM Poole where he undertook a two month canoe course.

Following active service in this theatre of operations, Sills was posted back to Commando Infantry Training Centre, Lympstone, for a further seven months during which he acted as a Company runner.

Transferred to the British Military Hospital in Singapore for 2 months and then to HMS Haslar, the Royal Naval Hospital in Gosport, for a further 4 months recuperation, Marine Sills was eventually discharged from the Corps as medically unfit for service.

    The recipient's service number shows that he served during the Second World War and would most probably have been a member of either the 7th, 12th or 13th Battalions of the Parachute Regiment which formed the 5th Parachute Brigade. Commanded by Brigadier Nigel Poett, the brigade, which was a key component of the 6th Airborne Division, took part in Operation 'Overlord' dropping into Normandy on the night of 5th/6th June 1944.

    The brigade went on to see action in the Ardennes during the 'Battle of the Bulge' (December 1944) and took part, in March 1945, in the Rhine Crossing.
