First world war medals will auction at Halls

Medals awarded to a first world war soldier are to auction at Halls in Shropshire, UK on March 22-23, the BBC reports.

They belonged to William Marychurch Morgan, who served in the Royal Welch Fusiliers.

He was mentioned in dispatches in 1916 and was later awarded a Military Cross.

The lot includes an Albert Medal (the highest civilian honour), one of only 290 ever awarded. It has since been replaced by the George Cross.  

The collection is expected to make around £12,000 ($14,900).
