This extremely rare medal was awarded to A. To have a 1914 star named to an Australian Unit is such a rare find. From my research there are only around 233, 1914 stars actually named to an Australian Unit. Although not Australian, this is one of only 208 ever issued. A really rare medal that deserves to be in a museum. It also makes it rarer than even the rare Gallantry awards. I have done some research and he was an Ambulance Driver in the Australian Ambulance Corps. The Australian Voluntary Hospital was a military hospital staffed by Australian expatriates in England that served on the Western Front between 1914 and 1916. For much of this time it was the only Australian presence on the Western Front.
Later transferred to the Royal Air Force (RAF) 01/04/1918. I have added some information about the hospital below. MORE INFORMATION england & Wales, National Probate Calendar (Index of Wills and Administrations): Farquhar Albert of Woodnesborough Grange Sandwich Kent died 10 November 1935.
Confirmation of Florence Muriel Lambe or Farquhar widow Mowbray Gore Farquhar D. Colonel Stuart Saint John Farquhar admiral and John Charles Peveril Meggs Davis. -- ABERDEEN - MARRIAGE OF MISS NICOL OF MURTLE - Miss Alice Jane Nicol, eldest daughter of the late Mr Alex Nicol of Murtle, shipowner, and sometime Provost of Aberdeen, was married on Thursday at St Andrew's church, Aberdeen by the Rev J M Danson, to Albert Farquhar, fifth son of Admiral Sir Arthur Farquhar. When the First World War broke out in August 1914, Lady (Rachel) Dudley, the wife of the former Governor general of Australia the Lord Dudley, decided to create a hospital from Australian doctors and nurses who were in the United Kingdom.
There were relatively large numbers of these; while doctors and nurses could be trained in Australia, advanced qualifications still required a trip overseas.
