British Medals & Militaria

 


April 2018  Highlights


British military watches and Napoleonic medals continue to lead the way as strong collecting themes. A trend we believe will continue through 2018. 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, a  Longines ‘Dirty Dozen’ watch, plus a rare Waterloo Medal to the 95th Regiment of Foot.


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.

 

 

A fresh-to-market 'time-warp'  Longines ‘Dirty Dozen’ watch complete with its original back-plate designations. Today, one of the most sought after of the ‘Dirty Dozen’ watches, and with provenance to match.

 


Lastly, a Waterloo Medal to a private with the 95th Regiment of Foot (The Rifles). The soldier badly wounded on the 18th June at Waterloo, and documented within the publication, Rifle Green At Waterloo.
