1914 STAR

with Mons Bar

THIS AUCTION IS FOR THE FINEST REPLICA OF THE FULL SIZE 1914 STAR WITH MONS BAR

The 1914 Star (colloquially known as the Mons Star) was a British Empire campaign medal for service in World War I.

The 1914 Star was approved in 1917, for issue to officers and men of British forces who served in France or Belgium between 5 August and midnight 22/23 November 1914. The former date is the day after Britain's declaration of war against the Central Powers, and the closing date marks the end of the First Battle of Ypres.

The majority of recipients were officers and men of the pre-war British army, specifically the British Expeditionary Force (the Old Contemptibles), who landed in France soon after the outbreak of the War and who took part in the Retreat from Mons (hence the nickname 'Mons Star'). 365,622 were awarded in total.[1] Recipients of this medal also received the British War Medal and Victory Medal. These three medals were sometimes irreverently referred to as Pip, Squeak and Wilfred.[2][3]

A very similar medal, the 1914-15 Star, was also issued, but no person could receive both awards.
