I have a hall marked medal with an inscription on the reverse ‘Presented to James Curlers for proficiency in ambulance work 1912’. Any information please?.


Can you send us photographs of front and reverse of your medal please? Is there an inscription round the rim? Do you know anything about James Curlers? It would be good if you could send us a photo of the hallmark if that’s possible. From the hallmark we can tell the date of manufacture, where it was manufactured and the metal it is made of. email


Dear Sir,

I have a letter dated 1810 written by Joseph Stainton Manger, discussing wooden railway and Lord Elgin brick kilns.

Letter addressed to Robert Beaumont in Charleston.
