militaria item National Rifle Association bronze medal, cased
- British
Embossed 'RECRUIT' on the reverse under NRA, these medals, I suspect, were given to new recruits in the volunteer rifle regiments raised in the 1860s on completion of a musketry course.

militaria item Two fob medals, RND & RNVR (Sussex Division)
- British
The RND was raised in the Great War from men from the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve. The enamel medieval sailing ship device is the heraldic emblem of the Cinque Ports of southern England and was also used by the Sussex Division of the RNVR, who, as part of the RND, fought with great distinction at Gallipoli and later on the Western Front in WW1.

militaria item Divisional whaler's crew medal, RNVR (Sussex Division)
- British
The medal (diameter 39mm) shows a whaling crew race with a warship in the background and it comes in a small red card box with a paper label attached on which is typed 'CPO Wyatt'. The whaler, normally manned by a crew of 12 oarsmen, was a small sailing boat used for ship's landing parties.

militaria item Inter-service division whaler medal, RNVR (Sussex Division)
- British
The medal (diameter 33mm) shows a whaling crew race with a warship in the background. The whaler, normally manned by a crew of 12 oarsmen, was a small sailing boat used for ship's landing parties. The name 'whaler' derives from the type of boat used in harpoon expeditions against whales principally in the 19th century.

militaria item .22 Rifle Match medal, RNVR (Sussex Division)
- British
This is an unusual medal, numismatically, insomuch as there is a separate bronze medallion inlet into the main silver medal, which is not hallmarked. It is a fob-type medal for wearing on a watch chain. There is a pair of crossed rifles on the reverse of the medal, number 4 Short Model Lee-Enfields, to be precise.

militaria item National Rifle Association bronze medal, cased
- British
This is engraved in running script on the edge 'Surrey County Championship 1909'. It measures 47mm across and is in virtually EF condition. This would probably have been shot for at Bisley, Surrey, and with a little research one might find in the records who this was awarded to.

militaria item Bristol Humane Society medal
- British
This is a rare variant of the Royal Humane Society medal for successfully saving life, issued between 1774 and 1867. It would seem that the Bristol variant was instituted in 1807, according to the date on the exergue. The sculptor signs himself 'T.H.' for T. Halliday. It is, sadly, uninscribed, as it would have left the Mint.

- British Empire
