The Ultimate Queen Mary's Needlework Guild ( Q.M.N.G. ) Medallion with war service date bars for 1914, 1915, 1916, 1917 and 1918
Well if you have to have one in your collection, you might has well have one with all the war service date bars! In lovely condition with original blue silk ribbon and all pin fittings original and fully functional. Date bar in red enamel for 1914 has echoes of the red strip for Army WW1 service chevrons and makes this scarce. Enamel undamaged, no restoration. 107mm tall. Throughout the whole duration of the war, this lady must have knitted the socks for a whole Division! A cracker.
The Queen Mary's Needlework Guild came into being after just a few days into the Great War, when Queen Mary's issued a letter on the 4th August 1914 through the Press, to the Women of the Empire asking that it might be rendered "To alleviate all distress occasioned by the War!" which was the purpose of the guild to provide comforts and create articles of clothing and surgical equipment as well as other gifts to the troops fighting for King and Country at home and abroad.

WW1 Day Pass to Amiens issued to a Sergeant in the Royal Munster Fusiliers - Entitled to SWB
A rare survivor - a personal day pass / duty permit issued to 5965 Sergeant E. Keogh of the Royal Munster Fusiliers by the Camp Commandant of the Fifth Army Headquarters. Hard to read all of it now, especially the free text between the printed. Goes along the lines of "The Bearer of this Permit: [details of soldier above] is authorised to proceed to Amiens on duty for to-day only, and must leave Amiens on his return journey before [underlined twice!] .." Unable to read the rest. It is repeated in French below.
The whole has been stuck to a reinforcing backing paper. This is not a modern addition and I think this pass was heavily used, hence the contemporary reinforcement. In "as found" condition. Measures circa 6.5 by 8 inches.
The WW1 SWB roll confirms the award of Silver War Badge B16934 to 5965 Pte Edward Keogh, Royal Munster Fusiliers. Enlisted 14/12/1915 and discharged aged 22 as no longer physically fit (Para 392 (xvi)) on 1/10/1918. Presumably he was either acting up as Sergeant when issued his permit, or was busted down to Private for breaching the terms of his permit!
I will provide a copy of the certificate and details which can be downloaded from the SWB CDROM with the permit. Great addition to his medals.
