|30th July 2005||1879 Zulu War medal for auction|
By Clive Dickens
Bosley's the Military auctioneers have in their September auction the 1879 medal of Sgt John Edwards 24th Foot who was killed at Isandhlwana. It is discribed as being a pristine example complemented by the Royal mint packet and box of issue the latter with ink written details and contained in the forwarding Registered envelope it is the first time it has been put up for sale. Anybody got a couple of grand to spare.?
