A great family grouping of medals dating from WW1 up until post 1953.
WW1 Pair correctly named S/15312 Pte A Adams Seaforth.
Archibald was born in Linlithgow in July 1882. His father James was a shoemaker. Archibald married Margaret Downie Russell in March 1914. He served with the 1st Garrison Bn Seaforth Highlanders which were formed at Tillicoultry in July 1916 and moved to Salonika in August 1916. Upon research, we find a picture of Archibald in Malta wearing a convalescents uniform. We know he suffered from malaria and serving in Salonika, he would have been sent to the ‘Nurse of the Med’ (Malta) to recover.
He also served as S/11951 in the 10th Bn Argyle & Sutherland Highlanders.
We have an address of 130 High St Linlithgow given for Archibald and we know in 1934, he was working as a grocer. Archibald died in 1953.
His pair is his full entitlement. The medals are on original silk ribbons.
WW2 Pair with Police LSGC. Pair unnamed as issued and LSGC named Inspr James Adams.
James was born in 1915 in Linlithgow. From a family tree found, we know he was married to Janet Hay Middleton in 1942. We know also that he moved to Birmingham and in 1939 was a serving Police Officer. James died in Morecambe in 1993.
Medals are swing mounted on a clasp for wear on original silk ribbons.
QEII Police LSGC named to Sergt Malcolm Adams.
With this being a much newer medal we presume this to be the son of James who presumably followed in his fathers footsteps into the Police Force. There is no evidence of Malcolm in earlier family trees.
The medal is on the original ribbon with a clasp for wear.
A nice grouping covering over 50 years in the one family.
