Medal recipients signature book among headline lots at Spink

A book containing the signatures of medal recipients is the top lot of Spink's Postal History, Autographs and Historical Documents auction in London on July 18.

It's estimated to make £15,000-20,000 ($25,731-34,308).

Order Garter Spink
The book features a wealth of signatures from medal recipients of the 19th and 20th century

The book was compiled by Lt Col Robert Sandilands Frowd Walker (1850-1917) and includes a wealth of signatures from royalty, high-ranking officers and sportsmen.

It's broken down into sections, each representing a different award - including the Order of the Garter (featuring signatures from King George V and Queen Alexandra) and the Victoria Cross.

Each medal is identified with an illustration or a piece of the medal ribbon.

We have these incredible childhood drawings by King George V available.
