A Set of 6 Miniatures to Major George Weston Bond, DSO, who served with the Royal Warwickshire Regiment, and the Supply and Transport Corps of the Indian Army. Distinguished Service Order, GVR, India General Service Medal 1908, clasp Abor 1911-12, 1914 Star, British War Medal, Victory Medal with Mention in Despatches oak leaf emblem, 1911 Delhi Durbar Medal. George Weston Bond born Ashbourne, Derbyshire and educated at Brighton College, enlisted into the Royal Warwickshire Regiment on 25th March 1896, and was commissioned in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment on 11th April 1900, serving with the Regiment until 7th October 1909 when he was appointed to the Indian Army’s Supply and Transport Company. It appears the Delhi Durbar Medal is self-awarded as he does not appear on the roll. Serving in the Abor Campaign, Bond was Mentioned in Despatches in the London Gazette of 16th July 1912. Going on to serve in the Great War, he saw service in France and Mesopotamia, being Mentioned in Despatches on 22nd June 1916 for France. He then moved to Mesopotamia where he was awarded the Distinguished Service Order on 19th October 1916 and finally being given another Mention in Despatches on 22nd December 1916 also for Mesopotamia. With research.
His medals were sent to Stourhead Lodge, Woburn Sands, Bedfordshire.
