Sorry state of affairs
Don't bank on the Corps museum buying them either, I tried to GIVE my mates uncles collection to them, the set included a DCM and a Greek valour award. The old boy had seen service throughout the war (even on Hood). They wern't interested, very sad state of affairs.
Bit of a shame this
Read the spiel that came with the sale of the medals and it makes no suggestion that Cpl Robinson has fallen on hard times. I hope that in this case he has seen that 2 gongs sitting in a drawer are gathering dust and can be put to better use in a collection somewhere.
I personally think it is sad that he is selling his medals,as they are a legacy to his military service. Having said that we do not know the reasons for the sale. There are plenty of genuine medal collectors who will buy them.
I have a GSM and PJM and i would never think of selling them,i want to pass them on to my son for posterity.
