Saleroom Notices
The following were amendments to the printed catalogue descriptions
11 The Regimental Museum hold a medal, without suspension, named to this officer but with most of the naming deliberately struck through
230 The I.G.S. 1895 medal is contemporarily re-engraved, not officially
314 There are at least 3 known surviving examples of the 79th’s regimental medal for gallantry in Egypt out of the 27 or so awarded
544 The badge is split at 7 o’clock between the ‘A’ and ‘R’ of 'Warwick'
805 This is a group of seven, as described
964 The lot now includes Pte Leach’s Soldier’s Small Book and Soldier’s Service and Pay Book
1127 The recipient is not listed in the London Gazette as a casualty. His papers give the date 29 October 1890 under the section for ‘Wounds and Hurts’ so this may refer to an injury rather that a wound received in action
