British Medals & Militaria highlights this month include three diverse- and collectible pieces; an outstanding Waterloo Medal to a Troop Sergeant Major. Secondly, a 1796 universal gorget, as worn at Waterloo. Lastly, a hard to find original example of the Omega ’53 RAF pilot’s wristwatch.

 

 

 


The first highlight for March is an outstanding Waterloo Medal  to Troop Sergeant Major john White, 12th Light Dragoons. White was a Sergeant at the time of the Battle of Waterloo, but after two of the Troop Sergeant Majors were killed during the battle on the 18th June, White received a field promotion to the rank of Troop Sergeant Major. An important Waterloo Medal.

 

 


 

Our second highlight also relates to the Napoleonic period. A stunning 1796 pattern universal gorget. This is the so-called Waterloo Gorget, as it epitomises the British officer at waterloo. This example has fine engraved features, and retains much of the mercuric gilt finish. A beautiful centre piece to any Napoleonic collection.

 

 


 

Lastly, we offer an excellent example of one of the classic RAF pilots wristwatches, the Omega ’53. With aircraft being increasingly sophisticated by the 1950s, the RAF realised their pilots needed a specific watch which was capable of countering any magnetic fields. Omega received a contract at the beginning of the 1950s. The contract which amounted to around 5,900 units, was for a high quality timepiece which was anti-magnetic. Those timepieces are today known as the RAF Omega 53.
