Over the past 25 years I have collected items like a squirrel with no particular theme other than I have an interest in military items & small vintage collects items. Sadly due to other collecting interests the time has come to offer some of the gems from my collection for sale to you. Most items are fresh to the market having been purchased over the years direct from deceased estates and a network of contacts in the antique and house clearance trade in county Durham. I hope you enjoy my offerings and good luck to all bidders.

A very nice 100% genuine.W.W.1 Bronze memorial / Death plaque to-EDWARD.LESLIE.ABBATT.complete with the original white paper envelope of issue (as used inside the brown card cover) & the original buckingham palace condolence letter from the king

Edward Leslie Abbatt was born in Kendal in 1896 & on the 1911 census he is recorded as a laundry engineer living at cliffside Kendal along with his parents & two younger brothers

I am not sure when he joined the army but he first landed in france 13-11-1914 with the Border regiment. he then transfered to the Royal Flying Corps (RFC) and sadly died in India 8-9-1917 serving as 65535.Airman 1st class Edward Leslie Abbatt with the Aircraft park of the Royal Flying corps.

He was 22 years of age at the time of his death and he is remembered with honour on the Karachi 1914-1918 war memorial in India

The Commonwealth war graves commision records the fact that he was the late son of Mr & Mrs Edward james Abbatt of Heversham, Cumbria

He was entitled to the 1914-15 star trio for his services but sadly only the 1914-15 star was ever issued as his medal index card notes that his British war & victory medals were returned as unclaimed.

The plaque is in mint condition and has a fantastic chocolate brown patina as issued

Complete with copy medal index card details along with 1911 census details and details from the Commonwealth war graves commission

See picture for details

I have decided that in the spirit of e-bay I will be starting all my offerings at 99p with no reserve

Please feel free to contact me if I can be of any assistance whilst the sale is in progress

Please note to be fair to all buyers I do not offer buy it now on any of my offerings

I am always happy to work out postal discounts if the buyer purchases more than one of my lots

Please see all the pictures for more details as these are considered to be part of the description

Please also note I have had to slightly increase my postal prices since royal mail made price rises in April 2013 as such I am offering more options for postage but if you opt for a cheap slow option from royal mail please understand I am not able to speed up the process & whilst I always post within 48 hours of payment I am then in the hands of royal mail.

Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
