Up for sale is a unique and rare WW1 medal. This medal reads "The Disabled Emergency Officers Of The World War" and is made of bronze. The medal is in fantastic condition for its age and comes with its original Presentation box. There is some very slight corrosion on the pin area of the medal, which is only really visible when looked at very closely. On the back of the medal it is inscribed "Captain William Graham Reynolds 2072".
Through some research online, (Screenshot Attached) I was able to find just one Captain William Graham Reynolds that served in WW1. Reynolds was in the 23rd Infantry Division and was deployed in France for some of his service in WW1. Looking at congressional records I determined that Reynolds was awarded the 2nd highest award in the United States Military - The Distinguished Service Cross. Reynolds got this award for his extraordinary heroism on October 4th 1918 near St. The record describes that he was severely injured and despite this was able to relay critical information to his successor, setting a positive example for his men.This record, and Reynolds severe injury, as well as the medal being for disabled Emergency officers leads me to believe that Reynolds was given the Disabled Emergency officers Medal specifically for the incident above. Don't miss this opportunity to own a rare medal that is ID'd and documented with history! The item "Named and ID'd Disabled Emergency Officers Vintage WW1 Medal With Box!
