Victory Medal. Liverpool Irish Mentioned in Despatches 1917. 2/8th battalion.
Victory Medal named: 306186 SJT. A.MITCHELL. L'POOL R.
I have a replica oak leaf on a ribbon and will include a new ribbon as well ok

Serjeant Alfred Mitchell was awarded a Mention in Despatches (MID) which is recorded in the London Gazette 18 December 1917, page 13230. The medal roll shows that Alfred served with the 2/8th battalion Liverpool Regiment which were the 2nd Liverpool Irish.
This medal is in good condition and is sold with prints of the medal index card, MID index card, medal roll and London Gazette pages and other pages of interest.. This is a rare chance to own a medal to a NCO with the Liverpool Irish who was awarded decorated with an MID for his service. The medal has lost some of the shiny gold colour from the front face but is actually to me nicer for it, as usual his name is inscribed around the rim.
The timing of the mention is around the The Second Battle of Passchendaele which was released by Haig on the 7th November 17. I believe its here Alfred was mentioned. Tried hard to get more information on this one from time to time but cant move any more. Been a great project.
