The Dr A.L.Lloyd O.B.E. K.St.J. Collection

Bonhams are pleased to announce the forthcoming medal auctions of the collection of Dr A.L.Lloyd O.B.E. K.St.J., to be sold in two parts. The first part to be sold on Wednesday 27 March 2013, the second part to be sold on Wednesday 16 October 2013. This substantial collection comprises a superb cross range of gallantry and campaign medals, covering campaigns from the late 18th Century up to the present day, presented to Doctors, Surgeons and other recipients with a medical or nursing theme.

The medal department at Bonhams handles all aspects of British Campaign and Gallantry Medals from the Battle of Waterloo up to the present campaign in Afghanistan. With four sales a year including our fine sale in September there is ample opportunity for buyers and sellers alike to make the most of this department. Recent successes have included medals awarded for the Iranian Embassy Siege in 1980 to a Crimean medal awarded to a soldier who was at the Charge of the Light Brigade. There is still a strong following for WW1 and WW2 material as collecting in this hobby remains very strong.
