Africa General Service Medal (1901-1910)
Africa General Service Medal (1901-1910)
The Africa General Service Medal, established in 1902, was a campaign medal of the United Kingdom. It was awarded for minor campaigns that took place in tropical Africa between 1900 and 1956, with a total of forty five clasps issued. The medal is never seen without a clasp and some are very rare. Most medals were granted to British led local forces, including the King's African Rifles and the West African Frontier Force. The only campaigns where European troops were present in any numbers were the various Somaliland campaigns, (including to the Royal Navy), and in Kenya

Clasps on King George Medal include:
N. Nigeria (July 1900 - Sept 1901), N. Nigeria 1902, N. Nigeria 1903, N Nigeria 1903-04, N Nigeria 1904, N Nigeria 1906

American Army Distinguished Service Cross
American Army Distinguished Service Cross
The Distinguished Service Cross is the second highest military award that can be given to a member of the United States Army (and previously, the United States Army Air Forces and the United States Air Force), for extreme gallantry and risk of life in actual combat with an armed enemy force. Actions that merit the Distinguished Service Cross must be of such a high degree that they are above those required for all other U.S. combat decorations but do not meet the criteria for the Medal of Honor. The Distinguished Service Cross is equivalent to the Navy Cross (Navy and Marine Corps), the Air Force Cross (Air Force), and the Coast Guard Cross (Coast Guard).
The Distinguished Service Cross was first awarded during World War I. In addition, a number of awards were made for actions before World War I. In many cases, these were to soldiers who had received a Certificate of Merit for gallantry which, at the time, was the only other honor for gallantry the Army could award, or recommend a Medal of Honor. Others were belated recognition of actions in the Philippines, on the Mexican Border and during the Boxer Rebellion.
The Distinguished Service Cross is distinct from the Distinguished Service Medal, which is awarded to persons in recognition of exceptionally meritorious service to the government of the United States in a duty of great responsibility. The Distinguished Service Cross is only awarded for actions in combat, while the Distinguished Service Medal has no such restriction.

Ashanti Medal
Ashanti Medal
The Ashanti Medal (1901) was the first campaign medal authorized by Edward VII. This medal was created for those troops that were engaged in the Third Ashanti Expedition, also known as the War of the Golden Stool. This expedition lasted from March – September 1900, with the final outcome that the Ashanti maintained its de facto independence. Ashanti was annexed into the British Empire, but they ruled themselves with little reference to the colonial power.

British Empire Medal - Civil Division
British Empire Medal - Civil Division
The British Empire Medal (formally British Empire Medal for Meritorious Service) is a British medal awarded for meritorious civil or military service worthy of recognition by the Crown.
The current honour was created in 1922 to replace the original medal, which had been established in 1917 as part of the Order of the British Empire.
The British Empire Medal, which may be awarded posthumously, is granted in recognition of meritorious civil or military service. Recipients are entitled to use the post-nominal letters "BEM".
The honour is divided into civil and military medals in a similar way to the Order of the British Empire itself. Like the ribbons used for other classes of the Order of the British Empire, the ribbon of the British Empire Medal is rose-pink with pearl-grey edges, with the addition of a pearl-grey central stripe for the military division. While recipients are not technically counted as members of the Order, these medals are nevertheless affiliated with it.

Frank Auty
Frank Auty
Frank served as a signalman in the Royal Naval Division from 1916 to 1919.

The Royal Naval Division, formed in September 1914, fought on land alongside the Army in the First World War. It consisted of personnel brought together from the Royal Naval Reserve, Royal Fleet Reserve, Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve, a brigade of Royal Marines, Royal Navy and Army personnel.

However family stories say Frank served on minesweepers at Broughty Ferry rather than in the infantry unit, his service record shows he was assigned to HMS Crescent which was a submarine depot ship from 1.5.1916, first at Rosyth, later at Scapa Flow and Oban.
