M. C. BWM & Victory Medal Pair – 17179 CPL. T McENNERY. R. A. M. C. Long Service and Good Conduct Medal (GV)- 17179 PTE. T McENNERY. R. A. M. C. Thomas McEnnery entered France 25th August 1914 as confirmed on his medal index card, with RAMC / 4G Hospital. His M.I.D. is Gazetted in the London Gazette 17th February 2015, page 1671. The British War Medal and Victory Medal are correctly named to him as a Corporal though it is interesting and rare to note that he reverted to Private at his own request 27th December 1915. Original Documents as follows:
1) RAMC Certificate of Training as a Nurse. Date 1905 this confirms Private McEnnery has completed his 3 years training in the Medical and Surgical Wards of a 1st Grade Military Hospital.
2) Certificate from The Incorporated Society of Trained Masseuses, Trained Nurses Club. Dated May 22nd 1909, this certifies that 197179 McEnnery has passed the relevant examination to qualify as a Masseuse.
3) Mention in Despatches – 14th January 1915 for gallant and distinguished services in the field. The envelope also survives.
4) Army Form B 2067 Character Certifictae dated 26th January 1923.
5) Personal letter from Lt Col Commanding RAMC. Dated 1923 this expresses the Lt Col’s sorrow not to have thanked him in person.
6) The handwritten original and a typed version of a Testimonial written by M H Babbington. Lt-Col RAMC O.C. No 40 Stationary Hospital.
These are the medals of a long serving Royal Army Medical Corps soldier who was, rarely, a highly trained and qualified nurse who had a proven medical track record prior to the First World War. He obviously was a dedicated man who earned a Mention in Despatches. The medals have been laid on card.
