1916 -2016 Great War Commemorative Medallion Set SoG 16


This superb Sands Of Gallipoli Great War 1916 -2016 Commemorative Medallion Set of six proof quality silver finish medallions reflects Australia's War in 1916 - on the seas, in the deserts and on the Western Front. While Australia's navy protected the oceans in both hemispheres and supported the blockade of Germany, the Australian Flying Corps' first complete flying unit, No. 1 Squadron, left Australia for the Middle East. Soldiers of the A.I.F. joined the fight in Europe and in the Sinai Desert. During the battles of Fromelles and Pozieres on the Western Front Australia suffered losses far greater than at Gallipoli, and in the desert at Romani the Australian Light Horse played a decisive part in the battle that finally put a stop to the Turkish threat to the Suez Canal and marked the beginning of the British forces' push out of Egypt and into Palestine. Sets include a numbered certificate of authenticity and a vial of sand collected from the landing beaches at Gallipoli. The timber finish display case folds into a stunning desk unit or can be wall mounted. Limited to 2,500 sets.
