Good heavens, poor old Whitham, on the market, yet again, you should buy him, Paul and give him a more long term home.

Frank,

They would sit very well in my collection, they would certainly be well looked after.
Maybe one day I will try an auction.

Paul :)

Hello Paul,
It is a great day out, but, a long way to go for just a single pair, but, you can leave a bid on line, or, bid live, on line, on the day in question, from your home!
You should at the least think about it, the very best items, although, I'm not suggesting this is one them, as far as British medals go, always pass through the London salerooms.
Regards Frank

Is it me or do the point of the Star look a little strange?
