The 1914-15 Star Campaign Replica Medal of the British Empire, for service in World War I. Approved in 1918, for issue to officers and men of British and forces who served between 5 August 1914 and 31 December 1915.
Not Awarded Alone
Like the 1914 Star, the 1914-15 Star was not awarded alone. The recipient had to have received the British War Medal and the Victory Medal. The reverse is plain with the recipient's service number, rank, name and unit impressed on it.
Authorized in 1918
Also known as 'Pip' this bronze medal was authorized in 1918. It is very similar to the 1914 Star but it was issued to a much wider range of recipients. Broadly speaking it was awarded to all who served in any theatre of war against Germany between 5th August 1914 and 31st December 1915, except those eligible for the 1914 Star. Similarly, those who received the Africa GSM or the Sudan 1910 Medal were not eligible for the award.
