C7125h Rare flying medal sells for £47,000

By Chris Young A rare medal has been sold for £47,000, described as an exceptional sum by North Rode-

ased auctio-neers Adam Partridge.

The silver Distinguished Flying Medal was a lot in the two-day sale last Thursday and Friday.

It was awarded to Sgt orman Bailey (R.A, 8 Flight, 3 Wing, Army Air Corps) in June 1966.

Sgt Bailey, from Warrington, received the medal for his actions and iloting skills in the Radfan Campaign of the 1960s. The Royal Artillery officer was stationed in the Wadi Tiban area of Aden in 1966. He was piloting a helicopter that egan taking enemy fire and managed to take the crew out of the danger zone.

The campaign was an insurgency in British-controlled areas of Saudi Arabia. The area is now known as Yemen.

The lot also included a cotemporary “London Gazette” that detailed the awarding of the medal, photographs of the damaged helicopter, letters and telegrams of congratulations f rom senior officers.

Valuer Bill Forrest said: “The only other medal of this type we know of was sold some t ime last year as part of a medal group. That went for £115,000. This i s an except ional result for a s ingle medal.

“There haven’t been many awarded s ince WW2. We haven’t been able to get a f i rm f igure, but i t i s probably around 20 to 30.

“There was quite a bit of pre sale interest in this medal and we thought we might get £20- £30,000.

“This i s the highest price we have ever got for a medal;

Special breeding rams sale had an excellent turnout

Following enquiries from several vendors and purchasers, auctioneers Frank Marshall and Co decided to hold a special sale of breeding rams on a Thursday evening, alongside their weekly Thursday horticultural sale.

They received an excellent response from vendors, who put forward in excess of 200 rams of assorted breeds, which consisted principally of Texel, Charollais and Continental crosses.

The entry, larger than initially anticipated, gave some concerns, but purchasers responded magnificently, with a huge crowd gathering around the ring, and remaining right through the sale.

The atmosphere generated was therefore considerable, and although there were no very high headline prices, fast, consistent trade resulted, with a very high percentage clearance. The top price of 500gns was paid for an outstanding three-year old pedigree Texel from Messrs Kirkham and Bourne, Stoke-onTrent, who also saw the best of their shearling Texels make 480gns, with several other to 450gns. Charollais breeder David Lewis, a regular supporter of Chelford’s pedigree Charollais sales saw the best of his excellent pen of lamb rams make to 450gns, with others to 420gns and two to 400gns, with another local breeder Geoff Biddulph seeing the best of his pen of Charollais ram lambs to 380gns.

Older stronger ram lambs ready to turn out and work immediately were in a considerable amount of demand with Messrs Darlington from Buxton seeing their Texel x Charollais two Shear make 380gns and their Suffolk two Shear make 330gns.

Generally, all vendors were rewarded, the only rams being unsold were those with perhaps unrealistically high expectations of price.
