A complete & boxed WW2 Royal Navy medal group consisting of The 1939-45 Star, Atlantic Star & War Medal with the Admiralty Condolence slip correctly made out to Frank Sandford, & contained in the Navy Accounts box of issue which is addressed to his father Mr.A.E.Sandford, West Brae Bungalow, Stonehills Lane, Runcorn, Cheshire.

Engine Room Artificer 5th Class Frank Sandford died at sea on 15th June 1944 when the frigate, HMS Mourne, was hit and sunk by a torpedo fired from U-767 in The English Channel.

Also included is a separate Buckingham Palace condolence letter which is addressed to his mother at the same address.

There is also a photo of Frank Sandford in his Artificer’s uniform & also a small cutting from a local newspaper relating to his death and which also mentions that his brother, Albert, is also serving in the RN (and which has a picture of Albert Sandford).

The items of paperwork all show the usual signs of handling over the years. The envelope for the Buckingham Palace condolence slip is dusty/discoloured.

The medals & ribbons are all pretty much in mint condition.
