Auction for Silver Tankard.
Denise Orzel has asked me to post the following notice:

Denise Orzel wrote:Well Ladies and Gentlemen - its that time of year again! It's nearly time for the Commando Veterans Association gathering in Fort William. I have asked for Fred's advice on this post - so here goes!
The above silver hallmarked tankard was owned by RM Ronald Cartwright (1925-2006), and I was priviledged enough to meet his son, Philip Cartwright, in Bulgaria last week.
Phil has kindly given his permission for this item to be auctioned by the Commando Coven to raise funds which will be split 50/50 between the Commando Veterans Association and Soldiers Off The Streets.
The tankard measures 5.5 inches tall x 10.5 inches in circumference.
It is hallmarked with a small Crown and VR 37 on the side.
I have attached the photos which I think show it from every side, and also attached are photos of Ron who was Earl Mountbatten's bodyguard during the Japanese Surrender in Singapore during September 1945.

The auction will close on 31 Oct 2015 at 23.59hrs.

I can either post the item to the new owner, or give it to them in Fort William. Many thanks, and Happy Bidding. regards, Denise xx



The auction is running on Facebook but bids can be posted here and I'll keep Denise updated. Also I will update this thread of the latest bids on Facebook.

The current highest bid is 325
