Colonial Police Forces Medal for Meritorious Service, Eliz II, renamed to Inspector General Major General Charles C. Fowkes, C.B.E., D.S.O. M.C., Kenya Police Reserve. Brigadier Fowkes participated in the East African Campaign commanding 22nd East African Brigade, part of Lieutenant-General Alan Cunningham’s force based in Kenya. In August 1941 he was appointed to command 11th (East African) Division and was confirmed in the role the following month. In November he led his division, supported by Ethiopian Patriot Forces in the final action of the East African Campaign., the capture of Gonfar on 27th November. After the campaign Fowkes remained in East Africa on garrison duties until April 143 when he was appointed to command 11th (East African) Divisoin. It had been felt by the British authorities that African soldiers would be well suited to jungle warfare and so the division was sent in June 1943 to Ceylon for training and then in June 1944 to Burma to join Indian XXXIII Corps and take part in the Burma Campaign. From the until December, fighting in the horrendous terrain through the Monsoon  (because African soldiers were thought to be less susceptible to Malaria – which proved to be the case), the division though tin the notorious Kabaw Valley and cleared the west bank of the Chindwin River establishing three bridgeheads for Fourteenth Army on the other side. The division was then withdrawn to India to regroup and rest. Fowkes fell ill and was sent on leave at the end of 1944 to recuperate. Neither the division nor Fowkes saw any further action during the war and Fowkes retired from the army shortly after the war ended. Originally commissioned into the South Wales Borderers, Fowkes was promoted to Major-General in 1941. He received the Distinguished Service Order for his efforts in the East African Campaign. Awarded the MC, London Gazette September 18th 1918 ‘For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. Under a heavy enemy attack on his company he stuck to his work after being early wounded, and under very trying circumstances set a splendid example to his men.’ Bar to MC, London Gazette 21st January 1920 ‘For gallant and able leadership. On 7th September 1919, he led two platoons successfully against a Bolo battalion, capturing over 100 prisoners and three machine guns, and killing some 100 enemy. Our casualties amounted to one other rank wounded. Throughout the operation he did well.’ Good very fine

Silver Jubilee Medal 1977, unnamed as issued. With certificate of issue named to Samuel T. Booker, G.C. With registered envelope addressed to Samuel T. Booker, G.C., 81 Abbotts Street, Blakenhall, Walsall, Staffordshire. Citation for Edward Medal ‘His Majesty the King has been graciously pleased to award the Edward Medal to David Noel Booker and Samuel Booker, in recognition of their gallantry in the following circumstances. On the afternoon of the 14th May 1937, three men were at work dismantling the plant at a conveyor face in a gate, at a distance of some 70-80 yards from the main level, in the Littleton Colliery, South Staffordshire. Firedamp appeared to be spreading in the gate, since at about 8pm, a fireman set off from the level to see what the men were doing up the gate and found that his lamp was extinguished at about 20 yards from the level. Between this time and about midnight , when full rescue apparatus became available and the bodies were recovered, efforts at rescue were made by a succession of men, some of whom themselves collapsed and thereby added to the task of later rescuers: of these one, Mr. Walmsley, the Under-Manager, himself lost his life, thus bringing the death toll to four. In these operations the brothers Booker were outstanding. Each of them forced his way up the gate on four or five separate occasions, and they were jointly or severally responsible for extricating four ealier rescuers who had succumbed to the gas, all of these survived except Mr. Walmsley, the under-manager. On all of these occasion the brothers Booker, who seem to have been men of high resisting powers, displayed great courage, which is to be rated even more highly as it was reinforced by an almost equal measure of coolness and forethought.’. Extremely fine
