It is a shame. Never understand why people sell of their relatives memories such as these. If I had a spare 6-700 quid, I would bid at the auction and ensure they go to the proper place.

As someone commented at the bottom - I can't understand why a relative would sell them for so little. The article does not mention being forced to sell etc.

Would I be cynical in thinking maybe the relatives just don't see (or feel) the real significance and that is just an easy few quid?

My Grandad was in York and Lancs as were his brothers 'The Barnsley pals' nobody knows what happened to his medals and he died before I was born. I know he lost fingers due to frostbite but other than that I know nothing of him and he had a paupers funeral. My mother used to go to the grave and she said they put other bodies on top of ones already buried and so I imagine no headstone.
