Product Description

The British War Medal and Victory Medal pair were campaign medals issued to British military personnel who served in World War I. The British War Medal was issued to all soldiers who served in the war, while the Victory Medal was awarded to those who served in a theatre of war.

Pte Barr DLI, as inscribed on the medals, likely refers to a Private Barr who served in the Durham Light Infantry (DLI) during World War I. The DLI was a British Army infantry regiment that served in several major campaigns during the war, including on the Western Front, in Gallipoli, and in Mesopotamia.

The award of both the British War Medal and Victory Medal would indicate that Private Barr saw active service during the war, likely serving in one or more of the major campaigns fought by the DLI.
