Title Fob medal, RNVR (Sussex Division)
Nationality British
Period 1950
Price £25.00

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.

The reverse is marked Sussex Division, but is otherwise unnamed. The condition is fine for its age; the enamel is in good shape and there is just a little age wear. It is fully hallmarked for Birmingham 1950 and comes in a little card jeweller's box, stamped on the lid 'The Sussex Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Ltd, Castle Square, Brighton'. The lid has puncture mark.

All these RND/RNVR medals came together from one source.

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.
