“The stories behind items of militaria frequently turn out to be fascinating and inspiring,” he said.

“A memorable collection we were honoured to handle at The Tamworth Auction Rooms recently was that of the medals of a local soldier who made it home from WW1 despite being gassed in the trenches.

“If you are not familiar with the field of medals and militaria and have some items you would like appraising, I am here to help so please do get in touch.”

Private William Richards’ medals archive sold at £1,400.
Private William J Richards’ DCM, 1914-1915 trio of medals and archive including a Princess Mary Christmas tin sold for £1,400.
