After training he was posted to France and by the end of 1916 he had seen service at Loos and Wulverghem, also on the Somme at Delville Wood and Guillemont. He was granted a commission on 27th June 1917 with the Hampshire Regiment. Joining the 15th Battalion he was wounded in action in France sometime around September /October but fortunately not too seriously and on 8th August 1918 took part in a new offensive on the Western front. The following day 9th August, Green won his MC. The London Gazette 7th November 1918 reported the award “for conspicuous gallantry and skill. He led 2 platoons in an attack and captured a machine gun. When the enemy attempted to filter back and bring forward a machine gun he forced them to retire by his initiative and skilful action. He showed a very fine example to his men”. Shortly thereafter on 14th October 1918 the Officer was again wounded in action when he received a shell wound to his left hand at Menin during the advance across the river Lys. As a result he was evacuated to England (the documents accompanying the medals contain more detail regarding actions involving the Officer).

The Médaille militaire (Military Medal) is a military decoration of the French Republic first established in 1852 by Emperor Napoleon III for award to Privates and Non-Commissioned Officers who distinguished themselves by acts of bravery in action against an enemy force. The Croix de Guerre (Cross of War) is a military decoration of France. It was first created in 1915 and consists of a square-cross medal on two crossed swords, hanging from a ribbon with various degree pins. The decoration was awarded during World War I, again in World War II, and in other conflicts. The Croix de Guerre may either be awarded as an individual or unit award to those soldiers who distinguish themselves by acts of heroism involving combat with the enemy. The medal is awarded to those who have been "mentioned in despatches", meaning a heroic deed or deeds were performed meriting a citation from an individual's headquarters unit. This is an original WW1 French Croix de Guerre & Médaille Militaire medal group to a named soldier who served throughout the Great War. The Croix de Guerre & Médaille Militaire are accompanied by 3 other French WW1 campaign / commemorative medals (The Commemorative medal of the War of 1914 - 1918. The Victory Medal and Croix du Combattant ).

The text also includes in French ‘did the whole campaign’. The medals are in excellent condition with original ribbons. The Croix de Guerre ribbon has a bronze star. The medals are nicely mounted in a glazed wood frame with brass mounts. The frame measures 21 ½” x 18” x 1 ½”. The rear of the frame has a metal ring for wall hanging.
