This set of full size Replica World War 1 Campaign Medals represents the most common group of medals awarded for service in The Great War. These three medals, often referred to as Pip, Squeak & Wilfred, are the 1914-15 Star, British War Medal and The Victory Medal. Each die-struck, museum quality replica is produced under licence to The Ministry of Defence and is available on a loose ribbon, mounted ready for wear and/or in a wall mountable display case. Each of these medals were issued with service details engraved on them, this can also be added to your order. The medals are also available for purchase separately.

Two versions on the Star were issued. The first being the 1914 star which was issued to the British Expeditionary Force and their immediate reinforcements. 400,000 of these stars were issued, approximately 300 were issued with a 'MONS Bar' for soldiers who came under fire between 5 August and 22 November. The second and most common star was the 1914-15 Star. Very similar to the 1914 Star but issued to a much wider range of recipients. Some 2,350,000 were awarded.

A soldier mentioned in despatches (MID) is one mentioned in a report written by a superior officer for gallant or meritorious action in the face of the enemy. Any such 'MID' would be denoted by the award of a bronze Oak Leaf which would be attached to the medal.
