      Phatbudda, your items are always awesome! It is hard to believe some of the things people throw away. I am wondering if your last item is a statue of Neptune... he is always associated with the sea. If you GOOGLE Neptune you can see some different statues with him and horses. Also, his spear is actually called a Trident and is used for spear fishing, also associated with Neptune! Hope this helps and keep up all of your great postings! They are AWESOME! Thrifty

      I love the medal. I did not realize these items were to an Admiral who died at Jutland! Anything to a High Ranking British Officers are quite rare, never mind to an Admiral who died at Jutland! Please keep up updated if you find anything on the medal, I tried seeing what it was but I too don't know what it is.

      Hi thrifty :)
      Hope you are well.
      Thanks, I thought it Neptune but wasn't sure. It looks so much better but my camera doesn't pick up the Quality of the piece.
      I google it and saw some similar statues.
      Thanks again

      Thanks again olofz, you really are good at this.
      That makes sense, I got some paper work from St. John's, I think they go together, il have a look when I get them out next.
      Thanks again
