The 1914 Star, also known as the Mons Star, was a campaign medal of the British Empire, for service in World War One, between 5th August and midnight on 22nd/23rd November 1914.
Recipients landed in France soon after the outbreak of the War and took part in the Retreat from Mons.

In October, 1919, the King approved and sanctioned the award of the bar to this star to all those who had been ‘under fire’ in France or Belgium during, or between the above dates. (Clasp seen above)
