Nick Thompson has been working on our largest and most diverse military sale yet, around 200 lots and coming up at Tamworth on 28th September. It will include a fantastic medal and related ephemera to William Green from Stafford, who tended to Florence Nightingale herself in the Crimea, and medals, Death Plaque and paperwork to Basil Henry Belcher, who went 'over the top' on the first day of the Battle of the Somme, with his men of the 2nd Royal Berkshires at Serre. Other medals include those of a soldier in the 14th London Regiment who went to France in 1914, was promoted to lieutenant and, unusually, then served in the newly formed RAF. The sale also features military watches, important Naval militaria from a ship sunk by U boat and many German items and combat badges. Don't miss it on Wednesday 28th September! ... See MoreSee Less
