    Medal Between 1914 and 1915 
    1914-15 Star 
    WW1 1914-15 Star
    WW1 1914-15 Star
    Established in December 1918.

    Also known as 'Pip'.
    This bronze medal was authorized in 1918. It is very similar to the 1914 Star but it was issued to a much wider range of recipients. Broadly speaking it was awarded to all who served in any theatre of war against Germany between 5th August 1914 and 31st December 1915, except those eligible for the 1914 Star. Similarly, those who received the Africa General Service Medal or the Sudan 1910 Medal were not eligible for the award.
    Like the 1914 Star, the 1914-15 Star was not awarded alone. The recipient had to have received the British War Medal and the Victory Medal. The reverse is plain with the recipient's service number, rank, name and unit impressed on it.
    An estimated 2.4 million of these medals were issued.
    Medal Between 1914 and 1918 
    British War Medal & Victory Medal 
    WW1 British War Medal, 1914-18
    WW1 British War Medal, 1914-18
    Established on 26th July 1919.

    Also known as 'Squeak'.
    The silver or bronze medal was awarded to officers and men of the British and Imperial Forces who either entered a theatre of war or entered service overseas between 5th August 1914 and 11th November 1918 inclusive. This was later extended to services in Russia, Siberia and some other areas in 1919 and 1920.
    Approximately 6.5 million British War Medals were issued. Approximately 6.4 million of these were the silver versions of this medal. Around 110,000 of a bronze version were issued mainly to Chinese, Maltese and Indian Labour Corps. The front of the medal depicts the head of George V.
    The recipient's service number, rank, name and unit was impressed on the rim.
    WW1 Allied Victory Medal
    WW1 Allied Victory Medal
    Also known as 'Wilfred'
    It was decided that each of the allies should each issue their own bronze victory medal with a similar design, similar equivalent wording and identical ribbon.
    The British medal was designed by W. McMillan. The front depicts a winged classical figure representing victory.
    Approximately 5.7 million victory medals were issued. Interestingly, eligibility for this medal was more restrictive and not everyone who received the British War Medal ('Squeak') also received the Victory Medal ('Wilfred'). However, in general, all recipients of 'Wilfred' also received 'Squeak' and all recipients of 'Pip' also received both 'Squeak' and 'Wilfred'.
    The recipient's service number, rank, name and unit was impressed on the rim.
