British Medals & Militaria

 


June 2018  Highlights


British military watches and Napoleonic medals continue to lead the way as strong collecting themes. Additionally gallantry awards from the first and second world wars are performing well, after a period of correction. We are currently considering consignments for these collecting categories.

 

British Medal & Militaria highlights this month include three diverse- and collectible pieces; a Napoleonic period Royal Navy Midshipmans dirk, an Omega 'Dirty Dozen’ watch, plus a rare Waterloo Medal to a surgeon with the 6th Or Inniskilling Dragoons.


The Napoleonic period Royal Navy Midshipman's dirk is made by the famous company, Gill's of London. This fine dirk with two-tone bone grip, would invariably be conferred to the sons of wealthy and/or aristocratic families, training to become commissioned officers.

 

 

An Omega ‘Dirty Dozen’ watch complete with its original back-plate designations. The watch in stunning condition, with low serial number, and the sought after 'Commando Hands'.


Lastly, a Waterloo Medal to a surgeon with the 6th Or Inniskilling Dragoons, a part of the famous Union Brigade at Waterloo. An important medal of museum level interest.
