Gallipoli Military Medal - History for Sale
IP: 90.156.104.130


Hi All,

I have identified the following item of LF Gallipoli memorabilia that I thought would interest readers found on Spinks Medal Site for sale on Monday 23rd July 2018.

A Great War M.M. awarded to Sergeant E. Hampton, Lancashire Fusiliers
Military Medal, G.V.R. (280350 Sjt: E. Hampton. 1/7 Lanc: Fus: - T.F.), very fine £160-200
M.M. London Gazette 19 March 1918.
Ernest Hampton served with the 1/7th Lancashire Fusiliers in Gallipoli from 5 May 1915.
Hampton would have landed from the S.S. Nile at ‘W’ Beach, Cape Helles and immediately found
himself in the thick of the action, for the unit were called to assist in the repeated attempts to take
Gurkha Bluff. When the call to leave the Dardanelles finally came for the Battalion on 27 December,
casualties totalled 7 Officers and 242 other ranks. Having spend 1916 in Egypt, the order to the
Western Front came, and the Battalion saw action around Ypres, during the Spring Offensive,
notably at Bapaume and finally during the final ‘Hundred Days’. Having ended the war around
Ferrière and Les Trieux, Hampton was demoblised on 17 February 1919; sold with copied MIC.

This award perhaps should be belong to the LF museum Gallipoli collection. Just a thought. Les
