Boxer Rebellion & 14 Star Trio

Here's a nice group with a nice mark-up to match, from The London Medal Company's latest catalogue. I was an under-bidder on this group to W H Jewell of the Royal Horse Artillery when it sold for £340 at an Essex auction house last month. LMC now have it at a somewhat eye-watering £795. Quite some mark-up that, even with the 20 per cent buyer's premium, but I suppose those Cecil Court rents must be eye-watering too.  

Read more about this group, and others, at the London Medal Company website.

British Battles & Medals - FREE this weekend


Here's a nice offer from Naval & Military Press. Spend £80 (including p&p) this weekend and get a copy of British Battles & Medals thrown in free of charge. I have an older version than this 7th edition but I'm still somewhat tempted.


The 7th edition of British Battles & Medals has been completely re-written and features hundreds of photos from the collection of renowned medal expert and authority, John B Hayward.


This offer is valid until 12 noon on Monday 8th June (even though the N&MP blurb above states July rather than June). Click on the images above or any of the text links to go straight through to the Naval & Military Press website.
