Looks like a nice pair of medals SAGS confirmed on roll.
Service papers are available - which show 21 years of service and a very "colourfull" medical and disciplinary record. An old school soldier.
The IGS is not detailed on his service papers - although his service records show he was in Burma during the campaign period.
I suspect this lot will go for significantly more than the estimate - say £800-900 if the IGS medal is confirmed on the roll.
