South Atlantic Medal - RAMC in auction

Hospitals.... Yuk! Hate 'em. (You're wondering where this is going aren't ya)? However, whatever the reason for the BMH visit.... always found meself wandering the halls hunting out the A4 sized piccy frames that housed a small print and blurb, outlining the "derring do" of one of the many RAMC VC winners. Heroic stuff indeed.

Found it eventually, got weighlaid by the cheap QSA/ KSA's.
sorry Ventie - thought i'd saved the link directly to the page

Lot 228, page 16

I was sent the link re: the VC collection going up for auction, then I saw all that possible walting material then found the SA Medal, just reading Medic too

sobering thoughts indeed
VC group went for £290,000 - 70,000 over the estimate
Waterloo medal went fro £6,000 - doubled the estimate
The Falklands medal went for £1200 - top estimate

Gulf one medal went for £120
£290,000 thats cheap!
the WW1 medal group of Capt Noel Chavasse RAMC and liverpool scottish was recently aquired for the lord ashcroft collection for £1.5 million.
Although 290,000 is a world record for a single V.C.
