Seeking Family Medals Pvt. A.S. Ablett and Sgt A.A. Ablett

Recommended Posts


My name is Michael Reid and I am living in Edmonton Alberta Canada. Around 2011 the medals described below were sold by a family member. I am hoping to locate the buyer. I was able to track down the last point of sale from eMedals in Burlington Ontario Canada. They have graciously allowed me to use their images during our search.

As a point of reference, my connection to the medals are as follows:

My Mother Betty Blanche Ablett (Reid) Sgt. 42 Coy CWAC WWII London

Her Father Alfred Alma Ablett Sgt Canadian Army (Recipient of the British War Medal and Victory Medal described below)

His Father Alma Samuel Ablett Pvt. Royal Horse Guards (Recipient of the Egypt Medal, Khedive's Star, Army Long Service and Good Conduct Medals described below.)


The medals:

Private A.S. Albett, Royal Horse Guards: Egypt Medal, 3 Clasps - TEL-EL-KEBIR, THE NILE 1884-85, ABU KLEA (871 Pte A.S. ABLETT. R.H. Gds.); Khedive's Star (unnamed); and Army Long Service and Good Conduct Medal (871. PTE. A.S. ABLETT. R: H: GDS.). Naming is officially engraved in italics on the Egypt Medal and in capitals on the ALSGCM.

Sergeant Alfred A. Albett: British War Medal (201001 SJT. A.A. ABLETT. C.A.G.S.); and Victory Medal (201001 SJT. A.A. ALBETT. C.A.G.S). Naming is officially impressed.

I would be most grateful to anyone who would be able to assist our family in locating these medals.

Related to Arthur Ablett, VC, DCM ? Incredible

" On 2nd September 1855 during the siege of Sebastopol , in the Crimea, a burning shell fell into a trench containing two cases of ammunition. Private Ablett, realising the danger to which all in the trench were exposed, seized the shell in his hands and threw it over the parapet, where it immediately exploded on touching the ground, but not one man suffered any injuries. "

I hope you find them. Did emedals spell Alfred's surname incorrectly ? They have it as Albett.
