Aldridges next auction.

Postby VW1956 » Mon Jun 25, 2012 7:48 pm

Hello. Just recieved notice of Henry Aldridges next sale.The card announcing it has on the reverse a very clear picture of two of Titanics lifeboats approaching the Carpathia. It says "rare photograph of Titanic lifeboat 14 and colapsible D taken from Carpathia. This is one of 400 lots in the auction including ephemera from onboard Titanic, April 10th first class menu, Unique Titanic day ticket, Molly Brown Titanic resolutions document and Gold, Silver and Bronze Carpathia medals".

This is a must place to be. So many rare items you will not see anywhere else. The unique Titanic day ticket might be the one still attached to it's stub. I am puzzled as to how a gold Carpathia medal is in the sale. I have always been under the impression that the bronze medals were for the crew, the silver medals were for the officers and the single gold medal was for Captain Rostron. That medal is on display in Liverpool. Or it was when I was there a couple of months ago. Surely thats not being sold.

The date for this sale is Saturday July 28th at 1pm. Ken.
