There were several other RD defenders in this colleciton of which I do not have details

I viewed this collection with my father in approx. 1988 - 89; it was a once in lifetime experience. I only wish I thought to take some pictures.

This collection was raised in the early and mid 70’s and dissolved in the early 90’s.

Thanks for the quick response, if it is Commisariat and Transport Department what would it be worth if the medal was in reasonable condition?

thanks again joe

hi joe.
In answer to your question between 520- 550 pd if it has the 1879 clasp , about 440 - 480 without a clasp .
In other words those medals entitled to clasps are more valuable than those without .
cheers 90th

ps. I dont have a copy of the 2009 or 2010 medal year book but in the 2008 book the valuations are

1879 clasp Naval medal 550- 650 , unclasped 280- 300.
1879 clasp Army medal 450- 500 , unclasped 280-300
1879 clasp Colonial medal 350-380 , unclasped 220 - 250.

They would be certainly worth more today .

hi joe .
I may have over estimated the value of the unclasped medals , take off 100 pds on all the unclasped medals which I did initially
value at 440- 480 pds. So now somewhere in the region of 340 - 380. Hope this makes sense scratch .
cheers 90th.
