May I draw the attention of colleagues to the following diary, which is Lot 210 at Strides of Chichester on Thursday of next week.  As far as I can tell, the only man who fits the bill is Russell-Vyvyan Steele, whose biography is easily found on RAMC websites.  As usual, I have no commercial connection with the auctioneers, nor any commercial interst in the lot. Posted  only for the information that such an item actually exists, whatever it's fate against the hammer.
