The 1914 Star is a crowned four-pointed star with crossed swords and a wreath of oak leaves, with the royal cypher at the foot and a central scroll inscribed "AUG NOV 1914". The reverse of the 1914 Star is plain, except for the inscribed name and service details of the recipient. The medal is bronze and is attached to the ribbon by a ring.
The ribbon is watered silk with red, white and blue stripes. This is the same ribbon as that worn on the 1914-15 Star.
Engraved on back 'Lieut F N Houston York & Lanc R.' From a framed collection of medals.
