    Default Spink auction catalogue

    The auction house of Spink is having a charity auction on 6 September 2012. The catalogue for this may be viewed at http://www.spink.com/files/catalogue/12044.pdf.

    Catalogues of such auction houses are often amazing works of illustration and biographical research; this one is exceptional by all standards, not least for the individuals whose medals and other items are represented in the sales, viz:

    A/V/M Frederick D. Hughes, CB, CBE, DSO, DFC, AFC
    A/V/M Robert N. “Pinpoint” Bateson, DSO, DFC
    G/C John Cunningham, CBE, DSO, DFC
    G/C Charles B.F. Kingcombe, DSO, DFC
    G/C Robert J. Gosnell, DSO, DFC
    W/C Anthony Watson, DSO, DFC
    WO Edgar W. Burrow, MBE
    Flight Officer Constance Babington-Smith, MBE
    Major William A.G. Gratton-Bellow, MC
    S/L Constantine O.J. Pegge, DFC
    F/L Ben L. Garner, DFC, AFC
    G/C Peter G.H. Matthews, DFC
    G/C Peter D. Thompson, DFC
    WO Harry Dutton, DFC
    S/L Maurice H. Exton, DFC
    F/L Michel S. Andruszko, Cross of Valour, DFC
    Sergeant Kenneth Lythgoe, GM
    Flight Sergeant (later F/L) Ewart Preston, DFM, AFM
    Sergeant Vernon R. Marsh, DFM
    Flight Sergeant (later F/L) George Williams, DFM
    Sergeant (later F/L) Leslie C.A. Dowell, DFM

    plus several other medal groups without gallantry awards.

    Thanks Hugh,
    Interesting reading.
    Only wish I had £50,000! to bid on the Joe Pegge lot.
    His log book and photo album would be a big help in my research.

    Hi Andy..

    Interested to know how you got on with your research, Joe Pegge was my great uncle.
