Now on EBay is a Victory medal for WW1 soldier Corporal P.J.HERBERT of Cinderford.
I'm posting in the hope it will find it's way to the best possible new home, hopefully Herbert's descendants, or a local collector. I'm sorry it's a tight timescale before the auction ends on Monday afternoon. Please be assured I'm not in any way linked to the seller or the family, I don't stand to benefit in any way from this auction, I won't be bidding.
