MEDALS

1. The Operation Husky Immediate Distinguished Service Order group to Temporary Acting Captain (later Lieutenant Colonel) William Cunningham, Royal Marines: D.S.O.. George VI; 1939-45 Star; Italy Star; France and Germany Star; Defence Medal; British War Medal 193945; Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve Decoration, Elizabeth II, reverse dated 1956; mounted for wearing, nearly extremely fine; together with a mounted group of corresponding dress miniatures; the recipient’s King’s Badge with letter of issue; and accompanied by a large quantity of associated documents and ephemera, including: the recipient’s commission, a portrait photograph of him in uniform beside his older brother, John ‘Cat’s Eyes’ Cunningham, R.A.F., official correspondence, a reconnaissance photograph dated for June 1943 and apparently showing one of the Operation Husky landing beaches, and much other material. £3,000-5,000 D.S.O. London Gazette 29/10/1943 William Cunningham enlisted as a Marine on the 14th May 1940. He was commissioned as a Temporary Lieutenant in August of that year, and in October he was appointed to 103 Brigade for the 8th Battalion R.M.. He spent some of this time as an instructor at the R.M. Cadet Training Unit at Thurlestone. In November 1942 he transferred to the newly formed 41 (Royal Marine) Commando, with the rank of Acting Temporary Captain. A period of intensive training followed - the unit diary for 21 June 1943 records, for example: “…40 and 41 Commandos and Bde H.Q. landed at Brodick (Arran) for cliff climbing exercises”. Two days later, the senior officers travelled by air to London to “collect latest oblique photographs of “HUSKY”“ The planning for Husky involved the convergence on Sicily of three naval task forces. The Special Service Brigade comprised of 40 and 41 Commandos and commanded by Brigadier Robert Laycock was attached to the 1st Canadian Division, which set out from the UK as part of Task Force V under Admiral Philip Vian, on the 28th June. The Special Service Brigade was assigned to the extreme western end of the British landing beaches, on the Pachino peninsula, to protect the Canadian landing by capturing coastal gun emplacements and then providing flank protection until the rest of the force was established ashore. The neutralisation of one such strong point was the particular responsibility of Cunningham and his troop, but their landing was hampered by heavy seas and logistical problems, and he found himself ashore in the wrong place, with a drastically understrength unit. He led his men swiftly to their objective, where another problem awaited them. The enemy position, which Cunningham had approached from the rear, was protected by barbed wire entanglements, and the Bangalore torpedoes that he needed to clear it had been lost in the landing. He was obliged to use wire cutters instead - a far more hazardous method.

Operation Husky landing beach, Italy

William Cunningham and his brother John ‘Cat’s Eyes’ Cunningham

Next, Cunningham dashed round to the front of the emplacement, exposing himself to direct enemy fire, and personally silenced the position by putting a grenade through a loophole. The price of this success was a severe wound to his left arm caused by machinegun fire. In spite of this he refused to leave the field until the action had concluded, and according to the recommendation he accounted for a significant number of the enemy - either dead or taken prisoner. The significance of his deed is summarized in the recommendation thus: “His leadership especially after a painful wound was an inspiration to all. I consider that less resolute action by this Officer would have resulted in considerably heavier casualties to our Troops” It is noteworthy that for the Second World War the Royal Marines were awarded a mere 38 D.S.O.s (including second and third awards) - a tiny proportion of the overall total of 5,444. This group is thus very rare. Also of great interest is the fact that William Cunningham was the younger brother of the highly decorated pilot John ‘Cat’s Eyes’ Cunningham. Following a period of recuperation, Cunningham was assessed as unfit for further commando service, and joined the staff at Thurlstone. He subsequently served as Town Mayor of Middelburg after the capture of Walcheren. Rejoining 41 Commando after the war, he rose to become its commanding officer. He received further injuries in a car accident, while on duty, in January 1946. He was released from the Royal Marines in August 1946, and awarded the King’s Badge. Commissioned a Captain in the R.M.F.V.R., he was promoted Major in 1950, before finally retiring from the armed forces in June 1960. He died 23rd February 1989, aged 68 years.

2. The Battle of Cape Matapan Distinguished Service Medal group of seven medals to Chief Engine Room Artificer William Henry Waldron, Royal Navy: D.S.M., George VI (W.H. WALDRON. C.E.R.A. HM.S. GLOUCESTER.); Naval General Service 1909-62, George VI, clasp: Palestine 1936-1939 (M. 34941 W.H. WALDRON. A/ C.E.R.A. 2, R.N.); 1939-45 Star; Atlantic Star with France and Germany bar; Africa Star; War Medal 1939-45 with oak leaf emblem; Royal Navy Long Service and Good Conduct, George V, (M. 34941 W.H. WALDRON. A/ C.E.R.A. 2. H.M.S. ADVENTURE.), mounted for wearing, good very fine or a little better; together with this man’s initialled silver cigarette case, a small quantity of attendance and prize medals, and the postal box and transmission slip for the Second World War medals. £600-800 D.S.M: London Gazette 03/02/1942, investiture 19/05/1942. M.I.D.: London Gazette 01/01/1944, H.M.S. Selkirk. The Battle of Cape Matapan, 28th March 1941, was the first major fleet action for the Royal Navy since Jutland in 1916, and the last such action ever to be fought in a European theatre of war. The British victory concluded the work of nullifying the formidable threat of the Italian Navy that had started at Taranto four months previously. The aging ships of the British fleet were outclassed by the faster and better armed Italians, and it was by their boldness and superior seamanship that they prevailed, sinking three heavy cruisers and two destroyers for the loss of a single aircraft. The British cruisers played a key roll: upon making contact with the enemy they came under heavy fire - Gloucester in particular - and withdrew, luring the Italians towards the British Battle Squadron under Admiral Cunningham, who was determined to force a confrontation. When the Italians in their turn withdrew, Gloucester and the other cruisers gave chase to try and maintain contact. Sustaining the badly worn propulsion gear of the British ships was absolutely crucial, and it is with this in mind that the significance of C.E.R.A. Waldron’s D.S.M. recommendation may be appreciated: “For zeal, devotion to duty and exemplary conduct throughout the day and night of the action and particularly during the time the ship was in contact with the enemy and developing high power. He personally tended the port inner plummer block bearing which was causing considerable anxiety at this time, and it was his work on this bearing 36 hours previously, working at night under hurried conditions, which made it possible for the ship to steam so successfully.”

3. A Military Medal to Private William Waters, Wiltshire Regiment, George V (10733 PTE W WATERS. 7/WILTS: R.), good fine. £150-250 Entered France 21st September 1915 M.M. London Gazette 03/06/1919 4. A Crimean War group of three medals attributed to Light Brigade Charger Trumpeter Richard Davis, 13th Light Dragoons: Crimea Medal 1854-56, 4 clasps: Alma, Inkermann Balaklava, Sebastopol (R. DAVIS. XIII HUSSARS) privately re-engraved and with clasps mounted in the foregoing order, edge bruising, very fine or a little better; France, 2nd Empire: Médaille Militaire, enamel damage, otherwise good very fine; Turkey: Crimea Medal, Sardinian issue version, good very fine, mounted for wearing on a lightly engraved ribbon brooch and in a fitted case; together with a small collection of associated ephemera including a manuscript list of chargers from this regiment, and some research. £500-700

5. A Canada General Service Medal 186670 to Private R. W. Ferguson, 20th Canadian Battalion, clasp: Fenian Raid 1866 (Pte. R. W. Ferguson, 20th. Bn.), impressed, nearly extremely fine. £400-600

Born 1828, Arcott, India. Enlisted Ipswich aged 13 years and 8 months. Entitlement to British Medal with four clasps is confirmed and the citation for the French medal states “Served in the Eastern Campaign, including the affairs of Bouljanak and McKenzie’s Farm, the battles of Alma, Balaklava and Inkerman, siege of Sebastopol and expedition to Eupatoria.”. Sergeant 10th February 1856. Imprisoned in 1858 for being Absent without leave from watch-setting. Discharged 5th July 1870 after 24 years service. Died 19th December 1902 at 51 Thirza Street, Sheffield. Confirmed in Dutton as a charger. The 13th Light dragoons converted to Hussars in 1861. From the generally contemporary appearance of this group, and the irregular order of the clasps notwithstanding, it might be assumed that Sgt. Davis acquired these medals as a replacement or duplicate set.

6. Four medals to Petty Officer (later Chief Petty Officer) Hubert Henry Harris, Royal Navy: 1914-15 Star (J. 246, H.H. HARRIS, L.S., R.N.); British War and Victory Medals (J. 246 H.H. HARRIS. P.O.

VIVID.), mounted for wearing, good fine; together with a 9 carat gold masonic jewel to this man, cased, Fattorini & Sons, Birmingham 1921. £200-300 See lot 17 for the medals to this man’s son.

7. The superb Battle of Omdurman group of three medals to Squadron Sergeant Major J.H. Brennan, 21st Lancers, who saved the life of an officer in fierce hand to hand combat during the Regiment’s famous charge: Queen’s Sudan (2094. S.S. MAJ: J. BRENNAN. 1/LANCERS.); Army Long Service and Good Conduct, second obverse (2094 SQ: SERJT: MAJOR J.H. BRENNAN. 21ST LANCERS); Khedive’s Sudan, clasp: Khartoum (No 2094 S.S. MAJOR BRENNAN. 21ST LANCERS.), engraved in serif capitals, all with some contact marks to edges, otherwise nearly extremely fine. £6,000-7,000 Squadron Sergeant Major Brennan rode with C troop in the celebrated charge of the 21st Lancers at the Battle of Omdurman, 2nd September 1898. The regiment was advancing to the charge against what was believed to be a roughly comparable body of the enemy, when a trap was sprung by a large force hidden in a dry riverbed. Vastly outnumbered and at great risk from the drop into the riverbed; they nevertheless held to their course with iron discipline and superb horsemanship. The charge struck home, and a bloody melee ensued with horrific injuries inflicted on all sides. The 21st fought clear through to the other side in an estimated 2-4 minutes, and in that brief time a V.C. had been won, and numerous daring and selfless acts had taken place. One such act was performed by Squadron Sergeant Brennan, who saw the horse of the regimental surgeon, Surgeon-Major Pinches, cut down, and the surgeon fall amid a crowd of ferocious Dervishes. In spite of already being out in front, Brennan “gallantly returned to his assistance. After a tough fight during which Brennan killed several Dervishes he succeeded in getting the officer onto his own horse and back to the regiment” (British Medical Journal Sept 10 1898, quoted in Dutton). Ex DNW 22nd September 2006 lot 851. Reference: Roy Dutton, ‘Forgotten Heroes, The Charge of the 21sr Lancers at Omdurman’.

8. The remarkable Clandestine Warfare group of campaign medals to Paymaster Sub-Lieutenant Alan Mackenzie Rogers, Royal Navy, Section D Special Intelligence Service, and Special Operations Executive: 1914-15 Star (CLK. A. MCK. ROGERS, R.N.), British War Medal 1914-20 (PAPR. S. LT A. MC K. ROGERS. R.N.), Victory Medal (PAYR. S. LT. A. MC K. ROGERS. R,N.), 1939-45 Star, War Medal 1939-45, mounted for wearing, and offered with a quantity of copy research, very fine, first three ribbons worn. £1,000-1,500 Born 19th July 1896 in Portsea, Hampshire, the son of a Naval Officer, Rogers himself entered the Royal Navy on the 15th January 1914, at the age of 17, rising to the position of Paymaster Lieutenant in 1919. He was present for the Battle of Jutland, 31st May - 1st June 1916, in the light cruiser H.M.S. Castor, which was damaged by German fire, suffering 10 casualties. He resigned from the Navy in February 1921, and subsequently found employment with the Vacuum Oil Company, which was to merge with Standard Oil of New York in 1931. His work took Rogers to Yugoslavia, and in 1940 he was recruited by Section D of the Special Intelligence Service (a.k.a. MI6) on a voluntary basis. In July of that year Section D was merged with two other intelligence agencies to form the now famous Special Operations Executive (S.O.E.) which carried on its work in occupied and threatened territories. Section D (the ‘D’ standing for demolition) had been formed within S.I.S. in April 1938, with the purpose of creating disruption and fostering local resistance within territories that were, or were likely to be, occupied by Axis forces. Their primary responsibility was, as their name suggests, sabotage. At that stage Hitler had already occupied the Saarland and the Rhineland, and annexed Austria, and by the time that Section D received authorisation to commence operations, in March 1939, he had annexed the Sudetenland under the terms of the Munich Agreement. In that month, he contravened the agreement by annexing Bohemia and Moravia. This process had been facilitated by the conciliatory policies of Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, but from the chronology it is clear that S.I.S. did not share Chamberlain’s indulgent view of Hitler. The personnel of Section D went to (irregular) war with the Nazis five months before the official declaration of war between Britain and Germany. Their methods tended to involve encouraging and equipping local ‘partners’ to help them pursue the aims of sabotage and subversion, and such was the case in Yugoslavia, where their objectives included violent interference with traffic on the Danube (vital to the Germans for maintaining the supply of oil from the Balkans) and promoting the interests of local factions likely to resist an Axis invasion. Rogers became part of the effort, working under the cover of a consular clerk, and is described as forming a triumvirate with Trevor Glanville and Major Alexander Lawrenson, running the Croatian and Slovenian networks, at a time when considerable pressure was being exerted on them by the Axis powers - including the attempted murder and murder of two of their colleagues*. Yugoslavia was finally invaded by the Axis on the 6th April 1941, and four days later Rogers was arrested in Split on the Adriatic coast. Official documents make it clear that he had remained in place, and was captured, because of his work for S.O.E. The Gestapo held him at a concentration camp near Graz in Styria, on unspecified criminal charges. Correspondence indicates that he was regarded as being in serious danger and instructions were given that German consular officials captured in Iraq be detained by the Foreign Office as a form of security. The following month Roger’s status was formalised by the granting of a Secret Commission as a Captain on the general list. His cover as a consular clerk held, and he was eventually transferred to a civilian detention camp in Poland (Lager Ilag 8), in December 1941. Liberated in May 1945 he returned to Kensington in June, to be re-united with his wife Zerphee, whom S.O.E. had brought to England from Jerusalem in 1940. He resigned his commission in 1949, with the rank of honorary Captain. A passenger manifest of 1952 indicated that Rogers returned to his work in the oil industry, specifically with Socony Vacuum Co. Inc., Casablanca, Morocco. When Zephee Rogers died the following year, in Casablanca, at the age of only 49 years, the sad event is recorded in the index to Consular deaths; and Alan Mackenzie’s own death, in Palma in 1970, is also included on a consular list.

17. Three medals to Petty Officer (later Lieutenant Commander) Gordon Alan Harris, Royal Navy: Korea 195053, first type obverse (D/JX. 795559 G.A. HARRIS. P.O. R.N.); United Nations Korea Service 1950-54, unnamed as issued; Coronation 1953, unnamed as issued, mounted for wearing and with corresponding dress miniature group, about very fine; together with a collection of associated ephemera, including the instrument of his appointment as a Sub Lieutenant, services records, professional qualification certificates, photographs - including portraits of Prince Charles in Naval uniform, and other items. £150-200 16 not to scale

Lieutenant Commander Harris volunteered for the Royal Navy in 1946, his time beginning in 1948; and he retired in 1983. During the period of the Korean War he served in H.M.S. Illustrious, Drake, Black Swan and Unicorn, the latter two of which were deployed in the Far East (joined Black Swan 18/08/1950). He appears to have been in Drake when she made naval history as the only aircraft carrier to conduct a shore bombardment in wartime, when she engaged enemy coast watchers at Chopekki point. The documents offered with this lot provide a clear impression of Lieutenant Commander Harris's career progression. A notable characteristic of this archive is that it abounds with the highest praise for Harris's character and efficiency. The various forms of endorsement make it clear that he was a sailor and an officer of peerless quality. See lot 6 for the medals to this officer’s father 18. A Volunteer Long Service Medal to Corporal G. Coulman, Devon Royal Garrison Artillery Volunteers, Edward VII (1927 CPL G.

THE JEREMY HEBBLETHWAITE COLLECTION OF ORDERS & MEDALS An extensive collection of British and international medals encompassing numerous intersecting and complimentary themes: FRANCE AGAINST THE WORLD The Revolution of 1789 not only overturned the ruling hierarchy of France; it also embodied a clear threat to the political order of neighbouring states, which was heightened by the ascendancy of the talented and aggressive Napoleon Bonaparte. Between 1793 and 1815 there obtained a state of near perpetual warfare, not only in Europe, but in many other parts of the globe to which European influence extended. The British campaigns in the Iberian Peninsular are known to many, and this collection includes not only British medals carrying the names of well known battles such as Ciudad Rodrigo and Badajoz; but also an array of the (often elaborately designed) marks of distinction conferred by our Spanish and Portuguese allies, which provide a view of the war from the Iberian perspective. Conflict in Ottoman Egypt was precipitated when Napoleon invaded with the aims of creating a model colony and establishing a base from which to threaten British interests in India. Among the beneficiaries of British victories at sea and on land was the Ottoman Sultan Selim III, whose splendid gold and silver medals are present here in all five classes. Ultimately and inevitably the fate of Revolutionary France was decided in Europe, and the international effort which culminated in Napoleon’s defeat at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 is reflected by the diversity of the awards offered below. 36. Alexander Davison’s Medal for the Nile 1798, copper-gilt, un-named as presented, pierced for a ring suspension, good very fine £300-400 37. A Naval General Service Medal 1793-1840, to Boy Challoner Ogle, Royal Navy, clasp: Egypt (CHALLONER OGLE.), good very fine £1,000-1,500 Ex. Glendining's, February 1940. Confirmed as boy, troopship H.M.S. Europa. The recipient's distinctive name suggests a possible connection with a family that had served with distinction in the Royal Navy since the reign of Queen Anne. Sir Chaloner Ogle (1681-1750) was Admiral of the Fleet; his nephew Chaloner (1727-1816) also rose to Admiral and received a Baronetcy. The latter officer had two sons present in the Egypt Operations: Charles (another future Admiral of the Fleet) was in command of H.M.S. Greyhound; and Thomas, who as a Major in the 58th Regiment was killed in the boats at the landings. 38. A Military General Service Medal 1793-1814 to David Baxter, Royal Artillery, clasp: Egypt (D.

INDIA AND THE GREAT GAME European antagonism was echoed in India, where at times the British faced French supported opponents as they fought to consolidate their grip on the subcontinent. After Waterloo, Russian Imperialism came to be seen as the main external threat to the British in India, who sought to oppose it by a combination of warfare, espionage and diplomacy often referred to as ‘The Great Game’. A notably sanguinary chapter in this story was the disastrous expedition of 1839-42, to impose a puppet ruler upon the people of Afghanistan. The dramatic reverse suffered here had ramifications elsewhere in India, where previously amenable Princes were encouraged to test the mettle of the bloodied British East India Company.

RUSSIA, TURKEY AND THE EASTERN QUESTION Having defeated Napoleon the European powers (including Imperial Russia and the restored monarchy of France) worked together to maintain a new balance of power known as the Concert of Europe. The conservatism of the ruling elites ensured a measure of success; but nevertheless, ambition and rivalry lead to renewed conflict on the peripheries of Europe. The Russians fought to expand their hegemony in Eastern Europe and Asia (as noted above), while the western powers pursued complex policies in respect of the crumbling Ottoman Empire, the collapse of which would have created an unfortunate power vacuum in a key area of Russian interest. Ultimately this led to direct conflict between the West and Russia, the nucleus of which lay on the Crimean Peninsula.

SPAIN AFTER NAPOLEON: CARLISTS, CONSTITUTIONALISTS AND COLONIALISTS The period of Spanish resistance to French occupation had given rise to a liberal ethos, manifested in the Constitution of 1812, which the restored monarchy of 1814 was unable to extirpate. Conservative instincts were further offended in 1830 when King Ferdinand VII confirmed his daughter Isabella as his heir, alienating his brother Carlos and those (the Carlists) who upheld the Salic legal principal of an exclusively male succession. Thus, the war with Napoleon was supplanted by internecine conflict between reactionary and liberal factions. Meanwhile the Spanish struggled to project global power and to maintain their grip on their overseas possessions. These themes coincided in the person of General Francisco Franco, who led troops from the Protectorate of Morocco to secure victory for the Nationalists in the Civil War of 1936-39.

CHINA: THE LIMIT OF WESTERN AMBITION In the Far East the insatiable mercantilism of Europe and America met with implacable resistance from Imperial China. The Westerners, notably the British East India Company, resorted to the despicable tactic of nurturing opium addiction in the Chinese population to create a demand that it could exploit. This behaviour soon became a casus belli, and in 1842, victory in the first of the so-called Opium Wars secured trade concessions that were neither tolerable to the Chinese nor extensive enough for the British. The situation festered until 1856 when fighting broke out again, as represented by the early lots in this section of the collection. Anti-Western sentiment was again given forcible expression in 1900, with the outbreak of a popular uprising known to the British as the ‘Boxer Rebellion’. With support, albeit not consistent, from official Chinese forces, the Boxers attacked and laid siege to the Western extra-territorial holding in Peking (the Foreign Legations). Only after a desperate defence by a handful of servicemen and civilian volunteers were the legations relieved by a multi-national task force.

264. The rare and historically important Defence of Legations group of medal to Arthur D. Brent, Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank: China Medal 1900, clasp: Defence of Legations (A.D. BRENT. H. K. & S. BANK); U.S.A.: Military Order of the Dragon, China 1900, with original ribbon and pagoda roof suspension bar (ARTHUR D. BRENT BRITISH LEGATION DEFENCE No 738), engraved to the reverse; Peking Seige Commemoration Medal, bronze, 57mm, burning of the Chien Men, reverse: figures representing Europe, Japan and America trampling a Chinese dragon, in fitted J. Tayler Foot case with original explanatory notice (A.D. BRENT. (H.K.& S. BANK)), impressed to the rim, all extremely fine and rare. [3] £10,000-15,000 When, in the summer of 1900, the foreign legation quarter in Peking was attacked and invested by hostile Chinese factions during the so-called ‘Boxer Rebellion’, Arthur Brent was assistant to the agent in charge of the Peking agency, Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank, having ‘come East’ in 1897. The Agent, J.K. Tweed. elected to move the bank’s cash into the relative safety of the British Legation. This was done by camel cart, under fire, with Brent running behind the cart picking up the coins that fell through the bullet holes. Brent not only endured the subsequent siege, during which such parts of the legation complex as had not been destroyed were defended by a tiny international force of professions and volunteers; but also took part in the fighting. In addition he acted as a news correspondent for Reuters, and his account was published in the London Daily News as ‘The Seige of Peking by one who went through it. Diary of a besieged resident’ (16th October 1900)’. We read hearing of the firefights in which he participated, and of the experience of living under heavy fire as provisions grew ever shorter. At an early stage of the siege Brent, a German speaker, accompanied a party of British and German marines as an interpreter. The small force (c. 50) set out to rescue refugees from a burned out Catholic Cathedral, and Brent took part in the close quarters fighting that resulted. Following the raising of the siege by a large multi-national relief force, Brent was sent to Shanghai with the bank’s mail, arriving unkempt and with rifle in hand. He subsequently rose within the bank, becoming Manager of the Hamburg Branch in the years after the First World War. The British Medal and clasp was only awarded to 78 recipients, mainly Royal Marines, who formed the British component of the desperate defence. The American Order of the Dragon was formed by American officers who had taken part in operations in China in 1900, with provision made for admitting foreign participants as honorary members. The Commemorative medal, struck by J. Tayler Foot, is accompanied by a printed leaflet written by Brent himself, and “a limited number....have been made for those actually present at the seige”. Ex.

366. A late 17th Century English Household Cavalry officer's sword – probably an early Life Guards example, and possibly of the 2nd Troop: double edged blade 36 in., broad central fullers running almost to the point; 'Walloon' type cast brass hilt with double shell guards, faceted knuckle bow, large spherical pommel, brass wire bound grip with Turks head knots at the top and bottom; both sides of each guard and the pommel adorned in relief with a crowned leaf mask or 'Green Man' composed of oak leaves and with pendant acorn, flanked by a lion and a unicorn and supported by winged and robed figures; offered with a quantity of research. £1,500-2,500 The troops of Horse Guards formed part of the Army of the restored Stuart King Charles II. Subsequently they came to be designated The Life Guards, which title is generally used irrespective of the period referred to. The attribution of this sword is suggested firstly by the Lion and Unicorn, which are the supporters of the Royal Arms - the badge of the Life Guards1. The standing figures on the hilt are much like the angels which feature to this day on the trumpet banners of the Life Guards. These appear, furthermore, to have belonged particularly to the 2nd Troop in the 17th Century, when they bore "The King's Cypher....sustained by two angels of silver, that on the right having a sword in his hand and that on the left a Palm branch"2. These figures also appeared on the standard and guidon (1685), and the drum banner (1693) of the 2nd Troop3. The crowned face at the centre is of particular interest in the context of the Restoration, since the oak and acorn motifs may be a reference to the Boscobel Oak, in which the future Charles II was forced to hide with Captain William Careless (or Carlis) when fleeing from the forces of Oliver Cromwell after the Battle of Worcester in 1651. For his loyalty, Careless was later granted arms involving an oak tree, and the oak became an important symbol of royalism in the years following the Restoration. Charles II proposed to form the Order of the Royal Oak, to which he would admit those who had helped him in his flight and exile. The plan was set aside, but not before a list of candidates had been created. Careless himself fought as a cavalry commander at Worcester, though latterly he served as an infantry officer while in exile with Charles. The attribution to the Life Guards is further supported by examples cited by Charles Martyn4, with identical decoration, one having been exhibited in 1971 at the Household Cavalry Museum and titled ‘Sword of a Private Gentleman of the Lifeguard’. A further example is illustrated in Martyn’s book, and he suggests that the figures represent an angel and a devil – emblematic of his Royalists deliverers and the Parliamentarians respectively. He furthermore associates oak and acorns on swords with the Royalist antecedents of the post restoration cavalry regiments. A sword with nearly identical decoration to the pommel is also held by the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds. References: 1: H.M. Chichester & G.

372. United States of America: a fine officer's dress sword with later attribution to members of the Armstrong family of soldiers and politicians: blade 32.5in., flat backed for the first 19in., the remaining part double edged, etched decoration in the late 18th - early 19th century manner, additionally etched (c. 1900) with 'COL JOHN ARMSTRONG SARATOGA 1777' to one side and 'COL H.B.

ÂŁ500-700 Provenance: Lord Astor of Hever. The two men named, John Armstrong Junior (1758-1843) and Henry Beekman Armstrong (1791-1854), were father and son, and served in the American War of Independence and the War of 1812 respectively. The elder man was present at the Battle of Saratoga as aide to General Horatio Gates. Their family was joined by marriage to that of the Astors, and one of the principal Astor residences in the U.S., Rokeby, was originally that of John Armstrong Junior. Although the hilt appears to post-date the war service of both men, the blade appears earlier, and may have had some association with them.

SOCIETY OF FINE ART AUCTIONEERS AND VALUERS and the ROYAL INSTITUTION OF CHARTERED SURVEYORS CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION FOR BUYERS 1. Introduction. The following informative notes are intended to assist Buyers, particularly those inexperienced or new to our salerooms. All sales are conducted on our printed Conditions of Sale which are readily available for inspection and normally accompany catalogues. Our staff will be happy to help you if there is anything you do not fully understand. 2. Agency. As auctioneers we usually contract as agents for the seller whose identity, for reasons of confidentiality, is not normally disclosed. Accordingly if you buy your primary contract is with the seller. 3. Estimates. Estimates are designed to help buyers gauge what sort of sum might be involved for the purchase of a particular lot. The lower estimate may represent the reserve price and certainly will not be below it. Estimates do not include the Buyer’s Premium or VAT (where chargeable). Estimates are prepared some time before the sale and may be altered by announcement before the sale. They are in no sense definitive. 4. The purchase price. The Buyer shall pay the hammer price together with a premium thereon of 25% plus VAT @20% (totalling 30% inclusive) on the first £500,000 and 12% plus VAT @20% (14.4% inclusive) thereafter. 5. VAT. (†) indicates that VAT at the current standard rate is payable by the purchaser on the hammer price as well as being an element in the buyer’s premium. This imposition of VAT is likely to be because the seller is registered for VAT within the European Union and is not operating the Dealers Margin Scheme or because VAT is due at 20% on importation into the UK. The omega symbol (Ω) indicates that the lot has been imported from outside the European Union and the present position is that these lots are liable to a reduced rate of VAT (5%) on the gross lot price (i.e. both the hammer price and the buyer’s premium). Lots which appear without either of the above symbols indicate that no VAT is payable on the hammer price. This is because such lots are sold using the Auctioneers’ Margin Scheme and it should be noted that the VAT included within the Premium is not recoverable as input tax. 6. We are, primarily, agents for the seller. We are dependent on information provided by the seller and whilst we may inspect lots and act reasonably in taking a general view about them we are normally unable to carry out a detailed or any examination of lots in order to ascertain their condition in the way in which it would be wise for a buyer to do. Intending buyers have ample opportunity for inspection of goods and, therefore, accept responsibility for inspecting and investigating lots in which they may be interested. Please note carefully the exclusion of liability for the condition of lots contained in the Conditions of Sale. Neither the seller nor we, as the auctioneers, accept any responsibility for their condition. In particular, mechanical objects of any age are not guaranteed to be in working order. However, in so far as we have examined the goods and make a representation about their condition, we shall be liable for any defect which that examination ought to have revealed to the auctioneer but which would not have been revealed to the buyer had the buyer examined the goods. Additionally, in specified circumstances lots misdescribed because they are ‘deliberate forgeries’ may be returned and repayment made. There is a 3 week time limit. (The expression ‘deliberate forgery’ is defined in our Conditions of Sale). 7. Electrical goods. These are sold as ‘antiques’ only and if bought for use must be checked over for compliance with safety regulations by a qualified electrician first. 8. Export of goods. Buyers intending to export goods should ascertain (a) whether an export licence is required for the goods to leave the U.K. and (b) whether there is any specific prohibition on importing the goods in question into the destination country because, e.g. they may contain prohibited materials such as ivory. Charges may be applicable for export licences. Ask us if you need help. The denial of any permit or licence shall not justify cancellation or rescission of the sale contract or any delay in payment. 9. Bidding. Bidders will be required to register before the sale commences and lots will be invoiced to the name and address on the registration form. Some form of identification will be required if you are unknown to us. Please enquire in advance about our arrangements for telephone bidding. 10. Commission bidding. Commission bids may be left with the auctioneers indicating the maximum amount to be bid excluding buyers’ premium. They will be executed as cheaply as possible having regard to the reserve (if any) and competing bids. If two buyers submit identical commission bids the auctioneers may prefer the first bid received. Please enquire in advance about our arrangements for the leaving of commission bids by telephone or fax. 11. Methods of Payment. As a general rule any cheques tendered will need to be cleared before removal of the goods is permitted. Please discuss with our Office in advance of the sale if other methods of payment are envisaged (except cash).

12. Collection and storage. Please note what the Conditions of Sale state about collection and storage. It is important that goods are paid for and collected promptly. Any delay may involve the buyer in paying storage charges.

TERMS OF CONSIGNMENT FOR SELLERS 1. Interpretation. In these Terms the words ‘you’, ‘yours’, etc. refer to the Seller and if the consignment of goods to us is made by an agent we assume that the Seller has authorised the consignment and that the consignor has the Seller’s authority to contract. Similarly the words ‘we’, ‘us’, etc. refer to the Auctioneers. 2. Commission is charged to sellers at the following rates: 15% + VAT on each lot sold for up to £999, 10% + VAT on each lot realising £1,000 and above. 3. Removal costs. Items for sale must be consigned to the sale room by any stated deadline and at your expense. We may be able to assist you with this process but any liability incurred to a carrier for haulage charges is solely your responsibility. 4. Loss and damage waiver. We are not regulated by the FSA for the provision of insurance to clients. However, we for our own protection assume liability for property consigned to us at lower pre-sale estimate. To justify accepting liability, we make a charge of 1.5% of the hammer price plus VAT or, if unsold, our mid estimate of the hammer price. If the owner of goods consigned instructs us in writing not to take such action, they then remain at owner’s risk unless and until the property in them passes to the Buyer or they are collected by or on behalf of the owner, and clause 4 is inapplicable. 5. Illustrations. The cost of any illustrations is borne by you. If we consider that the lot should be illustrated your permission will usually be asked first. The copyright in respect of such illustrations shall be the property of us, the auctioneers, as is the text of the catalogue. 6. Minimum bids and our discretion. Goods may be offered subject to a reserve agreed between us before the sale in accordance with clause 7. 7. We may sell lots below the reserve provided we account to you for the same sale proceeds as you would have received had the reserve been the hammer price. If you specifically give us ‘discretion’ we may accept a bid of up to 10% below the formal reserve. . Reserves. (a) You are entitled to place prior to the auction a reserve on any lot consigned, being the minimum hammer price at which that lot may be sold. Reserves must be reasonable and we may decline to offer goods which in our opinion would be subject to an unreasonably high reserve (in which case goods carry the storage and insurance charges stipulated in these Terms of Consignment). (b) A reserve once set cannot be changed except with our consent. (c) Where a reserve has been placed only we may bid on your behalf and only up to the reserve (if any) and you may in no circumstances bid personally. 8. Electrical items. These are subject to detailed statutory safety controls. Where such items are accepted for sale you accept responsibility for the cost of testing by external contractors. Goods not certified as safe by an electrician (unless antiques) will not be accepted for sale. They must be removed at your expense on your being notified. We reserve the right to dispose of unsafe goods as refuse, at your expense. 9. Soft furnishings. The sale of soft furnishings is strictly regulated by statute law in the interests of fire safety. Goods found to infringe safety regulations will not be offered and must be removed at your expense. We reserve the right to dispose of unsafe goods as refuse, at your expense. The rights of disposal referred to in clause 8 and 9 are subject to the provisions of The Torts (Interference with Goods) Act 1977, Schedule 1, a copy of which is available for inspection on request. 10. Descriptions. Please assist us with accurate information as to the provenance etc. of goods where this is relevant. There is strict liability for the accuracy of descriptions under modern consumer legislation and in some circumstances responsibility lies with sellers if inaccuracies occur. We will assume that you have approved the catalogue description of your lots unless informed to the contrary. Where we are obliged to return the price to the buyer when the lot is a deliberate forgery under Condition 15 of the Conditions of Sale and we have accounted to you for the proceeds of sale you agree to reimburse us the sale proceeds. The liability to reimburse the sale proceeds shall not arise where you are acting reasonably and honestly and are unaware of the forgery but we are or ought to have been aware of it. 11. Unsold and withdrawn items. If an item is unsold it may with your consent be re-offered at a future sale. Where in our opinion an item is


WW102-614 Listing.qxp_Layout 1 18/10/2019 15:11 Page 131

unsaleable you must collect such items from the saleroom promptly on being so informed. Otherwise, storage charges may be incurred. We reserve the right to charge for storage in these circumstances at a reasonable daily rate. 12. Withdrawn and bought in items. These are liable to incur a charge of up to 10% plus VAT of the reserve or low estimate on being bought in or withdrawn after being catalogued. 13. Conditions of Sale. You agree that all goods will be sold on our Conditions of Sale. In particular you undertake that you have the right to sell the goods either as owner or agent for the owner. You undertake to compensate us and any buyer or third party for all losses liabilities and expenses incurred in respect of and as a result of any breach of this undertaking. 14. Authority to deduct commission and expenses and retain premium and interest. (a) You authorise us to deduct commission at the stated rate and all expenses incurred for your account from the hammer price and consent to our right to retain beneficially the premium paid by the buyer in accordance with our Conditions of Sale and any interest earned on the sale proceeds until the date of settlement. (b) You authorise us in our discretion to negotiate a sale by private treaty not later than the close of business on the day of the sale in the case of lots unsold at auction, in which case the same charges will be payable as if such lots had been sold at auction and so far as appropriate these terms apply. 15. Warehousing. We disclaim all liability for goods delivered to our saleroom without sufficient sale instructions and reserve the right to make minimum warehousing charge of £2 per lot per day. Unsold lots are subject to the same charges if you do not remove them within a reasonable time of notification. If not removed within three weeks we reserve the right to sell them and defray charges from any net proceeds of sale or at your expense to consign them to the local authority for disposal. 16. Settlement. Subject to our normal trading conditions, payment will be made by BACS or cheque 5 weeks after the sale unless the buyer has not paid for the goods. In this case no settlement will then be made but we will take your instructions in the light of our Conditions of Sale. You authorise any sums owed by you to us on other transactions to be deducted from the sale proceeds. You must note the liability to reimburse the proceeds of sale to us as under the circumstances provided for in Condition 10 above. You should therefore bear this potential liability in mind before parting with the proceeds of sale until the expiry of 28 days from the date of sale.

WW102-614 Listing.qxp_Layout 1 18/10/2019 15:11 Page 132

10. COMMISSION BIDS Whilst prospective buyers are strongly advised to attend the auction and are always responsible for any decision to bid for a particular lot and shall be assumed to have carefully inspected and satisfied themselves as to its condition, we will if so instructed clearly and in writing execute bids on their behalf. Neither the auctioneer nor our employees or agents shall be responsible for any failure to do so save where such failure is unreasonable. Where two or more commission bids at the same level are recorded we reserve the right in our absolute discretion to prefer the first bid so made. 11. WARRANTY OF TITLE AND AVAILABILITY The seller warrants to the auctioneer and you that the seller is the true owner of the property consigned or is properly authorised by the true owner to consign it for sale and is able to transfer good and marketable title to the property free from any third party claims. 12. AGENCY The auctioneer normally acts as agent only and disclaims any responsibility for default by sellers or buyers. 13. TERMS OF SALE The seller acknowledges that lots are sold subject to the stipulations of these Conditions in their entirety and on the Terms of Consignment as notified to the consignor at the time of the entry of the lot. 14. DESCRIPTIONS AND CONDITION (a) Whilst we seek to describe lots accurately, it may be impractical for us to carry out exhaustive due diligence on each lot. Prospective buyers are given ample opportunities to view and inspect before any sale and they (and any independent experts on their behalf) must satisfy themselves as to the accuracy of any description applied to a lot. Prospective buyers also bid on the understanding that, inevitably, representations or statements by us as to authorship, genuineness, origin, date, age, provenance, condition or estimated selling price involve matters of opinion. We undertake that any such opinion shall be honestly and reasonably held and accept liability for opinions given negligently or fraudulently. Subject to the foregoing neither we the auctioneer nor our employees or agents nor the seller accept liability for the correctness of such opinions and all conditions and warranties, whether relating to description, condition or quality of lots, express, implied or statutory, are hereby excluded. This Condition is subject to the next following Condition concerning deliberate forgeries and applies save as provided for in paragraph 6 ‘information to buyers’. (b) Private treaty sales made under these Conditions are deemed to be sales by auction for purposes of consumer legislation. 15. FORGERIES Notwithstanding the preceding Condition, any lot which proves to be a deliberate forgery (as defined) may be returned to us by you within 21 days of the auction provided it is in the same condition as when bought, and is accompanied by particulars identifying it from the relevant catalogue description and a written statement of defects. If we are satisfied from the evidence presented that the lot is a deliberate forgery we shall refund the money paid by you for the lot including any buyer’s premium provided that (1) if the catalogue description reflected the accepted view of scholars and experts as at the date of sale or (2) you personally are not able to transfer a good and marketable title to us, you shall have no rights under this condition. The right of return provided by this Condition is additional to any right or remedy provided by law or by these Conditions of Sale. GENERAL 16. We shall have the right at our discretion, to refuse admission to our premises or attendance at our auctions by any person. 17. (a) Any right to compensation for losses liabilities and expenses incurred in respect of and as a result of any breach of these Conditions and any exclusions provided by them shall be available to the seller and/or the auctioneer as appropriate. (b) Such rights and exclusions shall extend to and be deemed to be for the benefit of employees and agents of the seller and/or the auctioneer who may themselves enforce them. 18. Any notice to any buyer, seller, bidder or viewer may be given by first class mail or Swiftmail in which case it shall be deemed to have been received by the addressee 48 hours after posting. 19. Special terms may be used in catalogue descriptions of particular classes of items in which case the descriptions must be interpreted in accordance with any glossary appearing in the catalogue. 20. Any indulgence extended to bidders buyers or sellers by us notwithstanding the strict terms of these Conditions or of the Terms of Consignment shall affect the position at the relevant time only and in respect of that particular concession only; in all other respects these Conditions shall be construed as having full force and effect. 21. English law applies to the interpretation of these Conditions.

22. Prior written consent must be sought by the buyer or any other party for the use of any images, illustrations and written materials produced by or for Woolley & Wallis relating to a lot or sale, including the contents of a catalogue. Copyright for any of the aforementioned will remain the property of Woolley & Wallis, subject to the provisions of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. Woolley & Wallis and the seller make no representations or warranties that the buyer of a lot will acquire any copyright or other reproduction rights to it. PAINTINGS, DRAWINGS, LITHOGRAPHS, ENGRAVINGS AND PRINTS In accordance with long standing practice in Fine Art Sale Rooms certain terms used in descriptions in the Catalogue have the meanings ascribed to them in the glossary below. Glossary Any statement as to authorship, attribution, origin, date, age, provenance and condition is a statement of opinion and is not to be taken as a statement of fact. The Company reserves the right, in forming their opinion, to consult and rely upon any expect or authority considered by them to be reliable. (a) Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by the artist. (When the artist’s forename(s) is not known, a series of asterisks, followed by the surname of the artist, whether preceded by an initial or not, indicates that in our opinion the work is by the artist named. (b) Attributed to Edward Lear: In our opinion probably a work by the artist but less certainly as to authorship is expressed than in the preceding category. (c) Studio of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by an unknown hand in the studio of the artist which may be or may not have been executed under the artist’s direction. (d) Circle of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by an as yet unidentified but distinct hand, closely associated with the named artist but not necessarily his pupil. (e) Style of ...; Follower of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work by a painter working in the artist’s style, contemporary or nearly contemporary, but not necessarily his pupil. (f) Manner of Edward Lear: In our opinion a work in the style of the artist and of a later date. (g) After Edward Lear: In our opinion a copy of a known work of the artist. (h) The term signed and/or dated and/or inscribed means that in our opinion the signature and/or date and/or inscription are from the hand of the artist. (i) The term bears a signature and/or date and/or inscription means that in our opinion the signature and/or date and/or inscription have been added by another hand. (j) Dimensions are given height before width. (k) Pictures are framed unless otherwise stated. BOOK AUCTIONS If, on collation, any named item in this catalogue proves defective in text or illustration, the lot may be returned within 14 days of the sale with the defects stated in writing. This proviso shall not apply to defects stated in the catalogue or announced at the time of sale; nor to the absence of blanks, half titles, tissue guards or advertisements, damage in respect of bindings, stains, spotting, marginal tears or other defects not affecting completeness of text or illustration; nor to drawings, autographs, letters or manuscripts, signed photographs, music, atlases, maps or periodicals; nor to books not identified by title; nor to books sold not subject to return. ARTIST’S RESALE RIGHT / DROIT DE SUITE Droit de Suite is a royalty payable to a qualifying artist or the artist’s heirs each time a work is resold during the artist’s lifetime and up to a period of 70 years after the artist’s death. Royalties are calculated on a sliding percentage scale based on the hammer price excluding the buyer’s premium. The royalty does not apply to lots selling below the sterling equivalent of €1,000 and the maximum royalty payable on any single lot is the sterling equivalent of €10,000. Droit de Suite, which is not subject to VAT, will be added to the buyer’s purchase price and then passed on to the relevant collecting agency by the auctioneer. Please enquire for the accepted exchange rate on the day of the sale. Royalties for Droit de Suite are as follows: 4% Up to €50,000 3% €50,000.01 - 200,000 1% €200,000.01 - 350,000 0.5% €350,000.01 - 500,000 0.25% In excess of €500,000 Up to a maximum levy of €10,000 Lots marked with a ‡ symbol are potentially subject to the levy.

SPECIAL CATEGORIES OF PERSONAL DATA We process special categories of personal data for the following reasons: • if it is necessary to protect your or another person’s vital interests (for example, where you have a life-threatening accident or illness and we have to process your personal data to ensure you receive appropriate medical attention); • if it is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (for example, to protect and defend our rights, and/or the rights of our customers); We may process information relating to your health where we have your explicit consent to do so (for example, when you provide information about your access requirements prior to attending one of our events). INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS OF DATA We transfer names and addresses on our Asian mailing list to a printing company in Hong Kong to distribute our auction catalogues and promotional material. In these circumstances, your personal data will be transferred subject to standard data protection clauses (adopted by the European Commission) and included in our contract with the printing company. We share your data collected for marketing purposes and through our website with our website and email management software provider who are based in Jersey. In these circumstances, your personal data is transferred to them subject to an Adequacy Decision made by the European Commission in respect of Jersey. PROFILING We may use your geographical location to target our communications and advertising and promotions to you. If you do not wish us to do this, then please contact us using the details provided above.

In particular: • in relation to CCTV images taken when you attend our premises, we will retain these for a few months; • in relation to personal data relating to the transactions you have entered into with us as part of the provision of our Services, we will retain that data for period of seven years after that transaction has concluded in case any legal claims arise out of the provision of those Services; • we will retain your details on our marketing database until you inform us that you no longer wish to receive our marketing communications. However, where you do unsubscribe from our marketing communications we will keep your details on a suppression list to ensure that we do not send you information you have asked not to receive; • in relation to personal data relating to the provenance of works, we may retain that data indefinitely in our legitimate interests and the legitimate interests of the wider art market in maintaining the integrity of that market. YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS Under the DPA you have the following rights: • to obtain access to, and copies of, the personal data that we hold about you; • to require that we cease processing your personal data if the processing is causing you damage or distress; • to require us not to send you marketing communications. • to require us to correct the personal data we hold about you if it is incorrect; • to require us to erase your personal data; • to require us to restrict our data processing activities (and, where our processing is based on your consent, you may withdraw that consent, without affecting the lawfulness of our processing based on consent before its withdrawal); • to receive from us the personal data we hold about you which you have provided to us, in a reasonable format specified by you, including for the purpose of you transmitting that personal data to another data controller; • to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to any of our particular processing activities where you feel this has a disproportionate impact on your rights. Please note that the above rights are not absolute, and we may be entitled to refuse requests where exceptions apply. If you are not satisfied with how we are processing your personal data, you can raise a concern with the Information Commissioner. You can also find out more about your rights under data protection legislation from the Information Commissioner’s Office website available

INSURANCE VALUATIONS Written valuations for insurance can vary from a single item to a large estate. Before starting we discuss the various options available so that the valuation is specifically tailored to individual client’s needs.

For valuations of an entire house contents an itemised bound valuation is produced and can be accompanied by photographs when required. In addition to providing an inventory, written valuations can prevent painful arguments with a loss adjuster in the event of a claim.

PROBATE VALUATIONS We offer a speedy and professional service for executors and trustees and provide bound valuations for probate and duplicate copies when required. Since security is often a consideration, we can usually arrange for a house to be cleared and sent for auction, our Valuations Department ensures that executors are informed of which sales are involved and the results thereof.
