October 2018  Highlights


British military watches continue to lead the way as a strong collecting theme. A trend we believe will continue through 2018. We are currently considering consignments for this collecting category.

 

 

British Medal & Militaria highlights this month include three diverse- and collectible pieces; a Napoleonic period Royal Navy Midshipmans dirk, a rare 1943 dated Longines RAF 6B/159 watch, plus a group of medals to a sergeant with the SAS

 

 

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 1943 dated  Longines RAF ‘6B/159 watch, complete with its original back-plate designations. Today, a  wartime dated Longines RAF 6B/159 watch remains one of the must-haves by military watch collectors.

 

 

Lastly, a grouping of medals & associated items to a sergeant with the King’s Own, and the Paratroopers. The medal group includes the General Service Medal with clasp for the Arabian Penninsula, and a Territorial Medal for the Army Air Corps. The paratrooper’s commanding officer stated his military conduct as Exemplary ! A possible link with the SAS makes this an interesting group for further research.
