September 2022 Highlights 

 



Welcome to our British Medals & Militaria Highlights for September 2022

 


 

We start our September Highlights with a reminder to our more recent military history. A Falkland’s conflict South Atlantic Medal  to a Marine Mechanic & Firefighter, aboard the HMS Glamorgan. The vessel was hit by an Argentinian Exocet missile, killing and wounding many aboard. Mitchell was one of those helping to put out the fires.

 

 

 


Our second Highlight is a Napoleonic period Military General Service Medal. The medal awarded to Lieutenant (later Captain) Edward Purvis, known by many as none other than the ‘Ghost of Watlington House’. The ghost of Edward Purvis apparently still inhabiting Watlington House to this day. Purvis fought with the 4th Foot Regt, and received both the Salamanca and Corunna clasps. This is a rare to find medal from the Napoleonic era, where we have a photograph of Purvis taken in his later years.

 

 


 

Our third Highlight for July is an historic medal grouping to Able Seaman Victor Bromage. He was a survivor of the U-Boat attack against the aircraft carrier, HMS Ark Royal in 1941. In addition to the medals, are Bromage’s HMS Ark Royal cap tally, along with other items. The group coming from Bromage’s family.
