 7637 WW1 British Casualty Group – Medals, Death Plaque and Documents ++ON HOLD++ This lot comprises of 1914-15 Star and War Medal to Private William Albert Cade S-6548 of the Middlesex Regiment together with Death Plaque in issue case and numerous documents. William was killed in action on 26th March 1915 aged 20 and was from Tottenham, London. Lot includes the original scroll and letter from the Palace and two letters to his parents re the award of medals. This is a thought provoking lot and it is difficult to imagine what his parents must have felt on receiving these items which have been so well preserved. SOLD   
 7635 Mecklenburg-Schwerin Military Merit Cross 1st Class 1914 The Military Merit Cross (Militarverdienstkreuz) was established by Friedrich Franz II, Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin on August 5, 1848. (Mecklenburg-Schwerin, a grand duchy was located in northern Germany and a member of the German Confederation and later the German Empire.) The cross was awarded for each major conflict including 1870 and 1914 and I like to think of it as the Mecklenburg equivalent of the Prussian Iron Cross – its also the same size and shape as the Iron Cross. This is a finely struck example in gilded bronze with super detail. The rear features a substantial pin and hook arrangement – possibly jeweler converted from 2nd class. The cross is housed in a light tan coloured case with inner purple velve liner. Case is heavily worn. £269   
 7634 Iron Cross 1st Class Case 1914 WW1 +++ON HOLD___ Iron Cross case, about 58mm x 58mm x 20mm with oak leaf pattern and finely detailed EK embossed silver logo to the lid. Inner burgundy liner to base. I am not sure if this case is original or copy as it does not quite fit with the cases I am used to seeing. It checks out as non-UV so priced accordingly. SOLD 
 7633 WW1 Austro-Hungary Civil Merit Cross 3rd Class in Silver Beautiful example of the Civil Merit Cross 3rd Class which was established on 4.2.1916 by the Emperor Franz Joseph. It was awarded to persons who were not directly involved in combat but have rendered outstanding service to the state in wartime. I particularly like these awards due to the interesting pin style and the fascinating arrangements of marks on the rear. This cross features the makers name on the pin BACHRUCH (located in Budapest). One of the arms is the firms logo BBA and what seems to be the silver hallmark. Cross is supplied in a red/orange, fitted case. The case has a black underside which seems to be common for the Austrian style cases. Minor scratches to rear of cross. £225   
 7632 WW1 Austro-Hungary Civil Merit Cross 4th Class in Gilded Bronze Beautiful example of the Austro-Hungary Civil Merit Cross 4th Class which was established on 4.2.1916 by the Emperor Franz Joseph. It was awarded to persons who were not directly involved in armed combat but have rendered outstanding service to the state in wartime. Makers mark of WZ to the rear. This cross is supplied in an old burgundy coloured jewelers case with retailer name J Medlinger of Vienna. A very nice looking lot. £155   
 7631 Mecklenburg-Schwerin Military Merit Cross 2nd Class 1914 ++ON HOLD++ The Military Merit Cross (Militarverdienstkreuz) was established by Friedrich Franz II, Grand Duke of Mecklenburg-Schwerin on August 5, 1848. (Mecklenburg-Schwerin, a grand duchy was located in northern Germany and a member of the German Confederation and later the German Empire.) The cross was awarded for each major conflict including 1870 and 1914 and I like to think of it as the Mecklenburg equivalent of the Prussian Iron Cross – it’s also the same size and shape as the Iron Cross. This is a finely struck example in gilded bronze with super detail and is close to being in mint condition. The cross is housed in an old burgundy leatherette case with compartment to take the ribbon. £125
