Product Description

A nice unworn British Royal Navy set of 4 WWI period medals to 268779 Chief Engine Room Artificer 1 E H Rosekilly.

The medals consist of: the 1914/15 Star; the British War Medal; the Victory Medal; the Long Service Good Conduct Medal (marked HMS Forth). All 4 medals have Rosekilly’s rank as CERA 1. The medals are in very good condition and unworn, as Rosekilly died soon after the War. His medals are mounted on black velvet within a glazed frame.

He served on numerous ships from 1896 to 1919. During the War he served HMS Forth, Arrogant, Dolphin and Ambrose (all submarine depot ships). He was born 1875 in Devonport, Plymouth and lived there until his death in 1921.

H.M.S. Forth was completed as one of four second class protected cruisers of the Mersey class in 1889, but served in the Great War as a submarine depot ship. In July 1914, she was attached to the Third Submarine Flotilla for the Test Mobilisation. In 1915, she transferred to the Tenth Submarine Flotilla. She remained there until 1916, when she went to help the Eighth Submarine Flotilla, but she remained there only about one month. Later that year, she was with the Ninth Submarine Flotilla, where she would remain, till the end of the war. She was to have been renamed HMS Howard in 1920, but this did not happen and she was sold in 1921.
