I rec'd these from the Grandson..... His wife was my God Mother.....
I re-checked them and the naming is as follows....
I think that an error had been made on the Star as far as the initials are concerned..
1. 1914 - 1915 STAR - 10771 SERGEANT H. T. DREWETT, WILTSHIRE REGIMENT
2. 1914 - 1918 WAR MEDAL - 10771 SERGEANT H. G. DREWETT, WILTSHIRE REGIMENT
3. INTERALLIED VICTORY MEDAL - 10771 SERGEANT H. G. DREWETT, WILTSHIRE REGIMENT
