Heritagelass....Thanks for helping me clear it up .as you say the second medal is the 1914-15 Star which is very similar to the Mons Star but your slightly wrong in that the Mons Star was only awarded to those who survived the retreat from Mons(hence the name) so Francis wouldn`t have qualified sadly.... the other two medals are the British War medal and the Victory medal and all three medals were collectively known as Pip,Squeak,and Wilfred. My father got the Mons star at the age of 17 and as such did not qualify for the 1914-15 Star ...My father went from Ypres to Suvla Bay(Gallipolli) and landed just two months after Billy was killed....My father was slightly wounded at Suvla Bay but not enough to stop him from being at the Somme and the 2nd Ypres later where he got more seriously wounded but still miraculously survived...incidently he was a stretcherbearer and as such was in big demand as you can imagine......
