1914-15 Star

Flag_of_the_United_KingdomThe 1914-15 Star was a campaign medal of the British Empire, for service in World War I.

The 1914-15 Star was approved in 1918, for issue to officers and men of British and Imperial forces who served in any theatre of the War between 5 August 1914 and 31 December 1915 (other than those who had already qualified for the 1914 Star).
Recipients of this medal also received the British War Medal and Victory Medal. Some 2,366,000 were issued, including: 283,500 to the Royal Navy & 71,150 to Canadians.

I have a few of these in groups but also one orphan, 9078 Spr. L.Edmunds R.E.
