Campaign Medals:
War Medal 1939-1945

As with most Armed Forces Serving Personal during the conflict of World War Two, Eric Henry FREESTONE was entitled to the War Medal 1939-1945. This medal was awarded to all full time service personnel who had completed 28 days service between 3rd September 1939 and the 2nd September 1945. Eligible personnel who had been “Mentioned In Despatches” during the War were entitled to wear a bronze oak leaf emblem on the ribbon. Those eligible for a campaign star, yet who had their service cut short by death, wounds or capture by the enemy, still qualified for this medal.

1939-45 Star

Given the information available to us it is likely that Eric Henry FREESTONE was awarded the 1939-45 Star for operational Service in the Second World War between 3rd September 1939, and 2nd September 1945.

Eric Henry FREESTONE would have been awarded this star if their service period was terminated by their death or disability due to service. Also the award of a gallantry medal or “Mention In Despatches” also produced the award of this medal, regardless of their service duration.

Fighter Aircraft Crew who took part in the Battle of Britain (10 July to 31 October 1940) were awarded the "Battle of Britain" bar to this medal. In undress uniform, a silver-gilt rosette was worn on the medal ribbon to denote the award of this clasp.

Service: British Army
Regiment: Royal Armoured Corps

Royal Armoured Corps during World War 2
Formed: 1939

The Royal Armoured Corps (RAC) is currently a collection of ten regular regiments, mostly converted from old horse cavalry regiments, and four Yeomanry regiments of the Territorial Army. It provides the armour capability of the British Army, with vehicles such as the Challenger 2 Tank and the Scimitar Reconnaissance Vehicle.

The RAC was created on 4 April 1939, just before World War II started, by combining the cavalry wing (cavalry units that had mechanised), and the Royal Tank Corps (which was thereupon renamed the Royal Tank Regiment within the new corps). As the war went on, many other units became mechanised and joined this corps. In 1944, the RAC absorbed the Reconnaissance Corps.

The regiments (like the Royal Tank Regiments, battalion-sized) of the RAC during the war were numbered in the range from 1 to 200. These included training regiments and battalions of infantry converted. For example the 5th Bn of the Gordon Highlanders became the 116th Regiment RAC
Units

The Royal Armoured Corps is divided into those regiments that operate main battle tanks (armoured regiments) and those that operate reconnaissance tanks (formation reconnaissance regiments). Of these, three regiments are designated as Dragoon Guards, two as Hussars, two as Lancers and one as Light Dragoons. The remaining two are the two regiments of the Royal Tank Regiment. In the regular army there are five armoured regiments and five formation reconnaissance regiments:

Regular Army:

1st The Queens Dragoon Guards - Formation Reconnaissance
The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards (Carabiniers and Greys) - Armoured
The Royal Dragoon Guards - Armoured
The Queens Royal Hussars (The Queens Own and Royal Irish) - Armoured
9th/12th Royal Lancers (Prince of Waless) - Formation Reconnaissance
The Kings Royal Hussars - Armoured
The Light Dragoons - Formation Reconnaissance
The Queens Royal Lancers - Formation Reconnaissance
1st Royal Tank Regiment - NBC and training/demonstration
2nd Royal Tank Regiment - Armoured

FREESTONE, Robert (b. BET JUL AND SEP 1950, d. BET JAN AND MAR 1952)
Note: Information from Wheaton FREESTONE 22/3/2011
About Robert FREESTONE. I've seen his grave a number of times and wondered why his seem a lonely grave away from the other family graves in Shenley. Apparentley his parents had to get a special licence to get married on a Sunday during the war as being a baker at that time you couldnt have a full working day during the week. so Ridge was the only church able to fit them in. So little Robert lies there. If you look up his death on findmypast they have him down as 18 years by mistake.
