Military treasures to be auctioned - Birmingham (UK) Mail

Dudley collector's military treasures to be auctioned - Top Stories - News - Birmingham Mail:
Collection of Militaria up for auction
"The collection also includes albums containing military badges, buttons and insignia and a range of helmets and a range of ceremonial German daggers from the Second World War.

There is also a “large amount” of temperance medals. These were awarded to soldiers who avoided alcohol for set periods in an effort to clampdown on drunkenness in soldiers serving in areas where there was a lack of recreational activities.

The sale takes place at Biddle and Webb’s auction house in Ladywood Middleway, off Icknield Square, Birmingham, on June 30 at 10.30am."
