Mercantile Marine Officer’s Medal Group Of 8 For Two World Wars + Coronation For Sale

Mercantile Marine Officer’s Medal Group Of 8 For Two World Wars + Coronation

A splendid group of medals awarded to Duncan MacTavish.

The medals consist of the British War Medal & Mercantile Marine War Medal with correctly impressed naming to DUNCAN MC TAVISH ; plus

The 1939-45 Star, The Atlantic Star, The Africa Star, The Italy Star & The 1939-45 War Medal. These are contained in the original box of posting (with the medal award slip confirming the award of five medals) & which is addressed to “Mr.D.MacTavish, 52 Weymouth Drive, Kelvinside, Glasgow, W2. There is also an official Queen Elizabeth II 1953 Coronation medal which came along with all of the other medals. I do not have access to the Coronation Medal Roll, but I suspect that it is probably his. All of the medals are in excellent condition. It looks like he never wore them. A couple of the ribbons are missing, but these are easily replaced. Also included in the sale are some interesting ephemeral items i.e. his silver identity bracelet, a pair of Merchant Navy Officer’s shoulder boards, some uniform medal ribbons & also some original paperwork relating to the issue of the medals. Interestingly one of the documents dated 1943 refers to the award of “The 1939-1943 Star”.... On The National Archives website, Mr. MacTavish has a Mercantile Marine Medal Index Card for his WW1 service. His name is spelled “McTavish” on the Index Card (as per his BWM & MMWM pair). He also has a WW2 Medal record on the same website (here his name is spelled MacTavish). Both records confirm that he was born in 1895 so definitely the same person. I have not downloaded either of these records. I have also found a copy of his Board of Trade “Certificate of Competency – First Mate for Foreign Going Steamships” certificate dated December 1918 on the Ancestry website. I think he may have been an officer with the Blue Funnel Line at some point as there was a cap badge with the lot when I original purchased it. Still plenty of research potential on this group to a career Merchant Navy man.
