              MEDALS etc.

    148     Naval General Service Medal 1793-1840 with three clasps – St. Domingo, Basque Roads
              1809, and Java. Named to “
HENRY OGILVIE, MASTER’S MATE.”. The medal generally very
              fine/extremely fine, the clasps are slightly bent and show a bit of wear, and only minor
              edge knocks. The ribbon is quite dirty but probably original. This medal was recently
              discovered under the floor of a house in
Edinburgh.
              Henry Ogilvie joined the Navy in 1804, serving first on the Bacchante then the
Canopus.
              Then while with the Donegal he was part of Nelson’s pursuit of the combined Spanish and
              French fleets to the West Indies and back, and was wounded at the action off St. Domingo
              (1806). In 1810 he was present at the destruction of enemy shipping in the Basque Roads.
              His next ship was the Illustrious, during his time on which he took the rank of Master’s
              Mate, followed by the Akbar, involved in the conquest of Java. Later ships were the
             
Doris, President, Nightingale, and Newcastle. He appears to have retired in 1817, aged
              25. His entitlement is confirmed by reference to the Naval General Service Medal Roll
              1793-1840
. [Viewing by appointment.]
þ       ..                 ..                 ..               ..             £2,000.

 

    149     Important Second World War group of three medals comprising 1939-1945 Star with Battle
              of Britain clasp, Air Crew Europe Star, and War Medal 1939-45. These are still in the box
              in which they were posted out to the recipient’s mother (remarried as Mrs. Walker) in 1951,
              the clasp therefore still being loose.
              All are in excellent as-issued condition. The Battle of Britain clasp has been checked to be
              genuine, and shows the typical notch. These are accompanied by the certificate, naming the
              deceased as “Sergeant J. Wright”.
              Sergeant Pilot John Wright was a pilot who joined the RAF in 1935, first as an Aircrafthand,
              before applying to be a pilot. After training he went to 6 OTU at
Sutton Bridge in June 1940.
              He then joined 79 Squadron after converting to Hurricanes. He saw service in North East
              England, including the shared destruction of a He.111. His squadron was taken south to
              Biggin Hill, and on 4 September 1940 his aircraft was hit by a Bf110. Injured, he flew
              several miles, apparently aborted an attempted landing on a playing field when he saw
              that children were playing there, and then crashed into a household garage in Surbiton. He
              was removed from the wreckage but died in hospital next day. He was 24.
              The lot also includes two further pairs of medals; WW1 standard pair named to 47984 Pte.
              R. Wright, North’d Fus. (died
28 April 1917, near Arras) (John Wright’s father); and
              WW1 standard pair named to 144944 Gnr. J.Walker, R.A. (probably John Wright’s
              step-father). [Viewing by appointment.]

We are happy to accept MasterCard and Visa credit card payments, as well as payments by Debit Card. This facility can be used by room purchasers (who pay their accounts at the auction), by other local customers (who pay their bill in our shop), and by postal buyers.

Do not complete these details unless you want to pay by card, and to have the lots posted.
We have negotiated good rates with our bank, and are able to absorb the bank charges for this service ourselves, and therefore there is no additional charge for the use of this facility, as long as postal bidders give us their details in advance of posting. Only for postal buyers where credit card details are given after posting, we will charge 1.9% extra (Visa/MasterCard), plus cost of posting receipt slip.

If you are coming to the auction, please be aware that the Edinburgh Festival Fireworks Concert is happening at
Princes Street, starting at 9.00pm. This might have some impact on us;
> The afternoon viewing and earlier evening should be little affected, except that some people park their cars at this side of town and walk in to the centre.
> Any customers arriving during the auction should give themselves some extra time to drive or to use public transport – roads will be busy from about
7.30pm onwards.
> The car park at our venue is not open to the general public. If you have any problem getting a space in our parking area please come in and ask for guidance.
> Anybody still in the area will find the roads very busy after the fireworks finish. This will be from about
9.45pm.

>> Of course, you might want to fit in auction and fireworks !  The view from the clubhouse is pretty good.
