Another Falklands Hero's Medals Sold

Recommended Posts

Hear, hear! Sq. Leader Cheshire, the only Battle of Britain VC sold it years ago to provide money for a charitable organization - homes for mentally challenged adults, I believe. Well done, that man.

During my very brief tenure as a militaria store employee I also had a WWI flier come in to sell his medals: Pip, Squeak and Wilfrid, plus a Belgian award for spotting for Allied guns which took out a German ammo dump. I asked him why he was selling and his response was instructive: 'I've kept my log book to remember by. I wear the medals one day a year and they sit in a box the rest of the time. With the money, I can afford to visit my sister in Vancouver." 'Nuff said.
