January 2020  Highlights



British Medals & Militaria highlights this month include three diverse- and collectible pieces -  an IWC 'Dirty Dozen' wristwatch, a Naval General Service medal for Banda Neira, and a World War I medal group to a casualty from the Battle of Messines

 

 


The IWC MK.X forms one of the iconic Dirty Dozen watches, and outside of the elusive Grana, is the rarest of the dozen. This example survives in excellent original condition.

 

 

 

From the Napoleonic period, we offer a rare Naval General Service Medal with Banda Neira clasp. Just 68 of the Banda Neira clasps were awarded. A magnificent medal relating to the ‘Spice Wars’, and with provenance dating back to 1949.

Lastly, a World War 1 medal group to Captain Harry McDonald. He had been with the Royal Bank of Scotland for 13 years in Dundee, and then moved to their branch in London. With war declared in 1914, McDonald volunteered and joined the London-Scottish Regt. He fought at the Battle of Messines and was severely wounded. However, after recovering from his wounds, he was commissioned, and went into the Royal Cyclists Corps. Mentally, McDonald never fully recovered from his wounds, and shot himself through the head in February 1918. A cruel reminder of the affects of war.
