Small point, but do you mean DNW? Dix Noonan & Webb?

Yes  Ron.  It's the haze from all the medications.

Chaz, as long as they're NOT Seaforth related you are safe.  Good luck.

Dear All with John and David,

Do not over-bid on the one I want. That's an Order! Well, okay, belay that Order.

I will tell you who he was after the Auction. I made a (for me) hefty bid, but it is unwise to go too high, because then one ends up with a huge bill to pay - medals here, medals there.

Apropos bids: can someone tell me what sort of collector can afford to pay, say 84 thousand for a decoration plus three common medals? Just a thought...

Kindest regards,

Kim.

Dear All,

I unfortunately missed out on Capt Daniel Vincent McCollum, IARO, by twenty quid. Damn!

However, for the lucky bidder of 320 Pounds, plus add-ons, I will be happy to beam him information I had found out about the capable D. V. McCollum...

Kindest regards,

Kim.

Afternoon all

Would be very interested if anybody knows the whereabouts of Lot 57.

These are the medals of George Bullimore, my Grandfather and alas I missed the fact that they were at auction.

Any info appreciated.

Best regards

Welcome to the forum

Have you tried asking DNW to pass a message to the successful bidder?

Also if you haven't already I suggest posting on this forum's seeking family medals section https://britishmedalforum.com

Good luck!

Simon, if you haven't done so already, DNW will forward your request to their buyer. Obviously it is then up to the new owner as to whether they will reply to you. John

Thanks for your advice Gents. Really appreciated.

I have asked DNW but feared that they wouldn't divulge. Sounds as if they are helpful which is good news.

Will await their reply.

Thanks again

Simon

Dear All (and John),

The successful bidder for the Capt D. V. McCollum, IARO, group, has now sold the group to me. I have since found out that the War and ISM are possibly spurious - but his 15 Trio and the GSM IRAQ (Capt., IARO) are interesting, inasmuch as he became a Political.

His main claim to fame was his handling of the visit to London of the nephew of the Sheikh of Kuwait - a long story...

Kindest regards,

Kim.401652434_DNWscanof15TrioGSMgroup.jpg.defce3f8070b9d3394c8cf8844903b4f.jpg126894949_DetailsofMcCollumsappointments.jpg.f8e1b348771e4b75c4a65adf824efb93.jpg
