I don't know if it was surprise or not that the group to Capt Stewart reached the price it did.

The single to Sgt Amner looks interesting and again, I wonder if the guide price is realistic, bearing in mind how collectable these are, to us anyway!

However, note the initial "A" on the memorial.

Hello Doug,

This will not be the first time that the naming on a memorial is slightly wrong. It is most certainly him.

Adrian,

Prompted by your comment, I looked up the hammer price for the group to Capt G M Stewart and see this was £8,000. Wow!
