September 2021 Highlights 

 



Welcome to our British Medals & Militaria Highlights for June. They range from a WWII Arnhem related medal group, to an iconic Waterloo Medal, and an equally iconic Longines 'Dirty Dozen' wristwatch.

 

 


The first highlight is a medal grouping for an Arnhem survivor with the 10th Battalion Parachute Regiment. Sergeant Harbour was a part of Operation Market Garden, and was taken prisoner at Arnhem. The grouping consists of his boxed medals, along with various Parachute Regiment insignia.

 

 


Our second highlight is a fine Waterloo Medal awarded to Troop Sergeant Major John White. He was promoted to Troop Sgt Major on the battlefield of Waterloo, 18th June 1815. The promotion took place after two of the Regiment’s Troop Sgt Majors were killed during the fighting. A particularly rare example of a promotion on the day of the battle Waterloo Medal.

 

 

 

Lastly, we offer a British Military Longines so-called ‘Dirty Dozen’ wrist watch. Of the twelve watch makes that form the ‘Dirty Dozen’, it’s the Longines that gains most favour with collectors. This is due to its good size and pleasing case design. This example has had a complete mechanical overhaul, and is probably good to run for the next fifty years.

 

 

 


Lastly, do take a moment to check out our Take A Pop category. Here you will find heavily discounted end-of-consignments. Your chance to find a bargain without compromising quality.
