Winston Churchill's medals

Recommended Posts

While it is :off topic: this is the "short group" of miniatures of George VI, as sold by Morton & Eden (with reasonably solid attribution and provenence) in their December 2008 sale. Several oddities there.

Ed thanks for posting. Most interesting

Looks like he received Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee Medal aged all of 2 years!

For the crosses, I can identify:

1=Order of St Vladimir of Russia with crossed swords (for Jutland in WWI)

2=Norwegian War Cross.

Cheers

James
