 Naval General Service Medal 1793, clasp Phoebe 28th March 1814 named to George Fear. A unique name on the roll and one of just 31 Phoebe 28th March 1814 clasps issued, of which only 21 are to unique names.  This clasp awarded for the capture of the United States 32 Gun Frigate Essex, off Valparaiso Harbour, Chile, in March 1814, the only NGS clasps issued for an action in the Pacific Ocean Proper.  George Fear enlisted in the Royal Marines on 17th March 1806, joining HMS Canopus on 13th June 1806  until 10th Feb 1812. On 27th March 1812, he joined HMS Phoebe, being Paid off on 28th August 1815. He was finally discharged as undersize on 29th Sept 1815. The inherent drama of the chase by Phoebe and final capture of Essex  inspired the plot of Patrick O'Brian's novel ‘The Far Side of the World’, although in its movie adaptation ‘Master & Commander’ the American frigate is transformed into a French privateer. ‘Hunting the Essex: A Journal of the Voyage of HMS Phoebe 1813-1814’ by Midshipman Allen Gardiner of the Phoebe, gives us unique insights into the actual voyage and hunt for the USS Essex and the Battle of Valparaiso Bay.  Sold with copy musters, medal rolls and research on CD and ‘Hunting the Essex’ book. Condition only Fin4, reconstituted from original parts. Medal one time swing brooch mounted, resulting in much wear to rim and consequential loss/faintness of naming and plug at 6 o’clock.  Naming ‘ GEOR*E’ pretty clear and ‘FEAR’  very faint in parts but 100% correct as issued.  Condition of medal not to everyone’s taste, however, priced about 25% of what it would be if it was Very fine

An India General Service Medal bar Relief of Chitral to Pioneer Sergt. William Jacob a senior N.C.O. survivor of the King’s Royal Rifle Corps aboard the ‘Warren Hastings’ wreck on the Island of Reunion 6th January 1897. India General Service Medal 1895, one bar Relief of Chitral 1895. 8758 PIONEER SERGT. W. JACOB, 1st. BN. K.R.RIFLE CORPS. Sgt. Jacob was one of the 29 senior N.C.O’s (Sgt. & above) aboard the 'Warren Hasting' when wrecked on 6.1.1897. The Warren Hastings, commanded by Commander G. E. Holland, D.S.O., Royal Indian Marine, sailed from Cape Town for Mauritius. The passengers principally consisted of a half battalion of the King's Royal Rifle Corps, half a battalion of the York and Lancaster Regiment & detachments of the Middlesex Regiment. A good passage was had until the morning of the 13th, when the glass fell & the wind shifted to the south. Despitereduced visibility there was no cause for concern & that night the troops went untroubled to bed. At about 2.20 am on the 14th, a violent shudder was felt throughout the ship. Orders were given for the K.R.R.C. to fall in on the port side and the York and Lancasters on the starboard side. Through the torrential rain tropical ship's officers perceived that the vessel was aground & that it was possible to disembark by ropes on to the rocky coast of what later turned out to be the island of Reunion. At 4.15am the ship began to heel to starboard. 20 minutes later the electric lights went out. Thus by 5.00 am those men on the starboard side, some in total darkness, were standing knee deep in water. The list gradually increased until the Captain himself thought the ship would turn over. Nevertheless the discipline for which the British soldier is famed prevailed & the disembarkation was accomplished without a single fatality. The only lives lost during the whole episode were those of two natives who ran amok & jumped overboard. One officer present later wrote “Personally I look upon the whole business as one of the most creditable things to the British Army which has ever occurred, & without invidious comparison quite as creditable as the Birkenhead, for in the latter, if we are to believe the pictures, the men were at least all on deck, whilst on the Warren Hastings they were between decks, and.….quite unable to see what was going on.” Officers & men in various states of undress were subsequently conveyed to Mauritius, 120 miles away, in a British India ship, the Lalpoora. Upon arrival on the 18th all the officers were received by the Governor, Sir Charles King Harman. The dinner given that night at his residence, ‘Reduit’ was by all accounts ‘a curious sight’. Copy Medal Roll & page from Warren Hasting’s ‘wreck’ roll. Good very fine
