Happy Reunion

2 posts in this topic

Earlier this year, I had the good fortune to buy at auction, an interesting First World War group of six to a Grenadier Guards Captain. The name rang a bell, so with a little light research, I came up with a name and address in order to send a speculative note to a possible family member. This morning, I received my reply and after a telephone call with the lady in question, shall now be able to reunite the medal group with the rightful owner. However, the story of how the medals came to leave the family possession is worth mentioning. Until late last year, they were in the possession of the recipient's daughter in law. She was visited in her home by an antique dealer, who was interested in purchasing some pieces of hers (not including these medals), and she discovered some time later that the medals of her late husband and father in law were missing. The auction house has been contacted to alert them to the fact that the lot was not acquired legally and now (almost) everyone is happy.
