    B. E. F.
    Dear Mr Mileham
    It is with great regret that I have to inform you of your son's death. Killed in action on the 28th August. We had a hard fight that day and lost many a good lad like your son.
    It will be some comfort to you in your sorrow to know that his life was given in a fight, the result of which was to pave the way for the great successes of a few days later, when the great German line was broken.
    Every man did his duty nobly that day, your son amongst them. He was a very quiet boy and did his work without any fuss or show, but always did it and he will be much missed by all his companions.
    Please accept my sincere sympathy in your sorrow.
    I cannot tell you where he was buried, but will refer you to the Graves Registration Committee, War Office, who will give you all information possible.
    Believe me, 
    Yours truly
    C R INCOURT, Capt.,
    O.C. "B" Coy.,

    Rank: Rifleman 
    Service Number: 555090 
    Duty Location: France And Flanders 
    Campaign Medals: 
    Victory Medal
    Given the information we have available it is likely that George Henry MILEMAN was entitled to the Victory medal, also called the Inter Allied Victory Medal. This medal was awarded to all who received the 1914 Star or 1914-15 Star and, with certain exceptions, to those who received the British War Medal. It was never awarded alone. These three medals were sometimes irreverently referred to as Pip, Squeak and Wilfred.
    Eligibility for this award consisted of having been mobilised, fighting, having served in any of the theatres of operations, or at sea, between midnight 4th/5th August, 1914, and midnight, 11th/12th November, 1918. Women who served in any of the various military organisations in a theatre of operations were also eligible. 
    British War Medal
    From the information available to us, it is very possible that George Henry MILEMAN was entitled to the British War Medal for service in World War One. This British Empire campaign medal was issued for services between 5th August 1914 and 11th November 1918.
    The medal was automatically awarded in the event of death on active service before the completion of this period.

    Battalion: 1st/16th Battalion

The idea of these charts is to give the information that we have found in the research we have done and put together and with the help of many other people who have contacted us over the past thirty odd years we have been researching our family. The idea is that you click on the Chart box in blue to be taken to the next family. There is now a large number of charts to be found and connections can be made to all the main families I am researching. If a chart has a box with the standard background it means that as yet I have not put the Chart on the Web.
To conform to the Data Protection Act all the Charts have been altered to exclude all details for living people other than the name.
