Verified in ADM171, Arthur Jarvis would have originally enlisted into the Mersey Division of the RNVR and ended up in the RND, when the show opened, poor bugger.

The unusual style of naming is entirely consistent with other issued R.N.D. 1914 Stars.

The 1914 Star - my favourite "medal" although I only have a few in groups and a few "orphan" Stars.

One of mine too, as it seems to carry a huge weight on its shoulders, signifying the end of a long vanished world as nothing would ever be the same again after 1914.

It would certainly be very unusual indeed if the large serif capitals were NOT used on a naval 1914 Star and would suggest a later issue.

Have you an example to a regular or reservist "August" man in the 4th Middlesex?

Not that I can think of.

I have one to a L/Cpl in another notable "Mons"4th Bn, 4th Bn The Royal Fusiliers, later a Sergeant, awarded a DCM in May 1916 at St Eloi.

No clasp on the 1914 Star and not recorded on the MIC, perhaps he qualified but never submitted a request for the clasp, the battalion serving in Iraq in 1919 and Waziristan following that, prior to disbandment in 1924, I think it was.

Most of the battalion's officers were killed or wounded at St Eloi (all of those in "Y" Company) and the battalion was subjected to heavy fire from machine guns and light artillery as soon as they rose from the start line to attack, hence the significance of his having led men forward and having shot an enemy observation officer.

Thread drift.......

It is, without any doubt whatsoever, thread drift, but, then the 1914 Star buttons tightly over a number of coats.
