I was going to keep these but some other interesting item has come up and I need to finance this. With the 80th anniversary of the sinking coming up soon, this is a chance to own the Historically Important medal group awarded to The Captain of the Blue Star Line SS Arandora Star which was sunk by German U-boat U-47 Captained by Ace Gunther Prien. The medals are as follows :- Posthumous Lloyd’s Medal For Bravery at Sea named CAPTAIN. SS ARANDORA STAR 2nd JULY 1940. He was also awarded the Kings Commendation for Brave Conduct at the same time {This is absent}. WW1 Officer Pair named LIEUT. M {Lieutenant Royal Indian Marines} and Mercantile Marine named EDGAR. A Poland Polish Cross of Valour {awarded to him for Officers for the Withdrawal of Polish Troops from France 1940}, Atlantic Star, 1939-45 Star and a War Medal. SELFE on the Pair. Her medal card states PRISCILLA JANE MOULTON nee SELFE. The SS ARANDORA STAR was carrying 1673 people including Crew, British Military Guards German and Italian Prisoners of War and civilian Internees. She was sunk 02/07/1940 with a loss of 826 including Captain Edgar Moulton. He was Posthumously awarded the Lloyds War Medal For Bravery at sea and a German Merchant Navy Prisoner was also Posthumously cited for Heroism. A truly rare medal group and the first time on the market. The only similar medal group i found was this one, but i would say the Arandora Star is rarer.

Boer War Miniature Medal pair to Lord Strathcona’s Horse, KIA WW1 as Captain, KOSB, Father a Famous Archdeacon / Missionary. The pair of miniature dress medals named to Private A. Shaw; King’s South Africa Medal 1901-02, 1 clasp, South Africa 1901 A. Shaw, contemporarily engraved naming. Alexander James Macintosh Shaw was born in Tokyo, Japan to Archdeacon Alexander Croft Shaw and Mary Ann Cattell. His father was born in Toronto and was descended from a noted Scottish Military Family and became an important Missionary serving mainly in Japan and China (see link below). He served with Lord Strathcona’s Horse in South Africa. Shaw’s full-size awards were delivered to him in 1906 whilst he was serving with the Peking Syndicate, Chias-Tzo, North China; with medal roll confirmation of attribution and a few service papers, listing his occupation in 1900 a Surveyor. Alexander James Mackintosh Shaw graduated from Oxford University, and married Eve Grace Woodroffe. Alexander was subsequently killed in action during the Battle of the Somme near Beaumont-Hamel, France on 9th July 1916. His name is commemorated on the memorial to allied soldiers of the First World War at the Yokohama Foreign General Cemetery. He was at that time serving in the British Army as a Captain in the 1st Battalion, Kings Own Scottish Borderers. See wikipidea for more info on this family under Alexander Croft Shaw.
