Three lots were offered for auction at the Lincoln salerooms. Each illustrating the bravery, commitment and duty of those who went before us.

The Distinguished Flying Cross is awarded for “an act or acts of valour, courage or devotion to duty whilst flying on active operations against the enemy”.

A medal group, including the Flying Cross 1939-45, the Air Crew Europe Stars, Italy Star and Campaign Medal awarded to Flying Officer Frederick Ernest Forrest RAFVR 219 Squadron, sold for £570.

A World War I death plaque to James Sneddon, together with the 1914-15 World War Campaign and Victory medals and further ephemera relating to both James Sneddon and Arthur Dale, referencing the execution of Dale by firing squad for Sneddon’s murder, made £170.

Finally, a Royal Humane Society medal, together with a Crimea 1855 medal awarded to Lieutenant Oliver G Delancey was offered at auction. The silver medal of The Royal Humane Society with accompanying ephemera stated that Delancey was awarded the medal for the unsuccessful rescue of Private Patrick Dempsey, who had fallen overboard at sea on the pass from Malta to Gibraltar on the 27th May 1857 – for the noble, gallant and humane conduct displayed by Lieutenant Delancey who jumped from the deck of the steamship Adelaide in an attempt to save the private. The medal sold for £360.

Lieutenant Delancey served with the 47 Lancashire Regiment and was transferred to the Cheshire Regiment, serving with the Second Battalion in Malta and North America.
