Estimated Price: £8,000 - £12,000

Description: Military General Service 1793-1814, 3 clasps, Fort Detroit, Chateauguay, Chrystler’s Farm (J. B. Lapierre, Canadn. Militia.) fitted with silver ribbon buckle, minor contact marks, otherwise nearly extremely fine £8000-12000---Provenance: Colonel Walker Powell, Adjutant General Canada (pre 1867); Colonel A. de Salaberry (1867); Lieutenant-Colonel Charles de Salaberry (1868); the medal passed from the Honourable George Baby to the English collector Thomas Gibson (1885); Sotheby (1891 - Collection of James Oliver of New York, Founder of the American Archaeological Society; bought by Spink, £65); Whitaker Collection (Catalogue Part II, 1897), after many years in the Royal United Services Institute, Whitehall, the Whitaker Collection passed to Spink for disposal in 1957; Glendining’s (1965 - Captain W. A. Tinlin Collection, £950, then the highest recorded price for a Military General Service medal), acquired at that time by the noted collector John J. Barnett, and subsequently held in the cabinets of two prominent North American collectors; Spink (March 1995, £5,000); since held in the collection of John Goddard.It is of interest that Colonel A. de Salaberry was one of those appointed by Lord Elgin to the Board of Canadian Officers tasked “to receive, investigate and report upon the claims [for medals] of all surviving officers, non-commissioned officers and soldiers of the Militia...”Private Jean Baptiste Lapierre served with the Militia of Lower Canada during the American War of 1812-14 and his name is listed together with his entitlement to the M.G.S. medal and three clasps on the official Medal Roll of Veterans. ‘To one only was awarded the medal with three clasps for services in the three actions’ (Canadian Antiquarian and Numismatic Journal, Vol III, p. 185, April, 1875).That this medal was loaned to Colonel A. de Salaberry by the Adjutant General in 1867 suggests that Lapierre could not be traced at the time of its issue. ‘The Canadian Government had difficulty in locating some of the recipients and it is known that some medals were loaned to prominent Canadians until such time as they were recalled by the Adjutant General. Few recalls were made and eventually the medals passed into the hands of private collectors without ever having been presented to the recipient or his family’ (The Military General Service Roll 1793-1814, by A. L. T. Mullen, refers).

Estimated Price: £3,000 - £3,500

Description: A Peninsula and Waterloo pair awarded to Private Hugh McLean, 91st FootMilitary General Service 1793-1814, 3 clasps, Pyrenees, Orthes, Toulouse (Hugh McLean, 91st Foot.); Waterloo 1815 (Hugh M’Lean, 1st Batt. 91st Reg. Foot.) fitted with replacement silver clip and straight bar suspension, edge bruising and contact marks, otherwise nearly very fine (2) £3000-3500---Hugh McLean enlisted at Ayr Barracks on 21 May 1808, for 7 years service and received a bounty of 11 guineas. He served with the regiment in the Peninsula and was present at the battles of the Pyrenees, Orthes and Toulouse. He also claimed for clasps for Nivelle and Nive but these were disallowed, the medal roll being marked ‘absent’. The regiment returned to England in June 1814, to prepare for active service in North America but was diverted to Ostend following Napoleon’s escape from Elba. At Waterloo the 91st formed part of Colville’s Division in reserve and sustained just a few casualties. On 24 June the regiment participated in the assault and capture of Cambrai. Hugh McLean’s period of enlistment being completed, he was discharged on 22 August 1815. His Waterloo medal was delivered to him care of the 94th Regiment at Downpatrick, Ireland, which suggests that he had subsequently re-enlisted. Sold with full muster search report and copied muster, medal roll entry and other research.

He must have eventually turned up and went on to serve with the regiment until 24 March 1815, aged about 45 years, when he was discharged due to deafness making him unfit for further service. With copied discharge papers and muster roll extracts.

Nice, 94th Foot) short hyphen reverse, officially impressed naming, claw refitted, marks around edge from a case fitting; Military General Service 1793-1814, 1 clasp, Java (B. Nice, Troop Serjeant Major, 22nd Light Dragoons) mounted for wear from a silver brooch bar, edge bruising, contact marks, nearly very fine (2) £7000-8000---Approximately 150 Army of India medals issued to Europeans with three clasps, including 38 with this combination, of which 33 went to the 94th Foot.Benjamin Nice was born in Inveresk, near Musselburgh, Midlothian. A Labourer by occupation, he enlisted into the 94th Regiment on 9 April 1799. With them he served in India, seeing action in the Deccan campaign 1803, at the capture of the fort at Asseerghur, 21 October 1803; the battle of Argaum, 29 November and, finally, the capture of Gawilghur, 15 December. Of the important part played by the 94th (Scotch Brigade) at Gawilghur, Mountstuart Elphinstone wrote: ‘The advance of the 94th was silent, deliberate and even solemn. Everybody expected the place to be well defended. As we got near we saw a number of people running on the rampart, near the breach. I was amazed they did not fire: our cannon fired over our heads. We got to the breach where we halted, and let the forlorn-hope, a sergeant's party, run up: then we followed, ran along and dashed up the second breach and huzzaed. Perhaps the enemy fired a little from some huts by the second breach: I did not see them do that. I saw some of them bayoneted there. We kept to the right after entering the second breach and soon after the troops poured in, so that there was no distinguishing forlorn-hope or anything. We huzzared and dashed up the second breach and leaped down into the place. Such of the enemy as stood were put to the bayonet, but most of them ran off to the right and down a narrow valley which led to a gate. Here they met Colonel Chalmers coming on with half the 78th.The 94th pressed behind, firing from above and a terrible slaughter took place. After this we endeavoured to push on, when to our astonishment we discovered that we had only gained a separate hill, and that the fort lay behind a deep valley, beyond which appeared a double wall and strong gates. I thought we should have to entrench ourselves and wait till guns could be brought up to breach the inner walls. The 94th followed the road down and crowded around the gate. The first wall was joined to a steep hill and the 94th began slowly and with difficulty to climb up one by one. Beyond the first wall was a narrow rocky road, overtopped by a steep rock, and another wall and gate, over which those who climbed the first wall would have to go, which the steepness and height of the wall made impossible. While the 94th were climbing over, the enemy kept up a fire from their works: in the meantime our people poured in at the breach and covered the hill opposite to the enemy. They fired on the enemy and the valley was filled with such a roar of musketry as can hardly be conceived. The sight cannot be described. At last our men got over and opened the first gate. Scaling ladders were brought, got up the hill and applied to the second wall. The enemy fled from their works: we rushed over the wall, and the fort was ours.’The capture of the fort at Gawilghur, crowning the decisive victory at Argaum, ended the war, with Bonsia Rajah of Berar suing for peace and accepting British terms. In September 1807 Nice transferred to the 22nd Light Dragoons and served with them in the Java campaign, 4-26 August 1811. As the Troop Sergeant-Major he was discharged on 12 September 1820 on the disbandment of the regiment. His papers record that on one occasion his leg had been broken from a kick by a horse. With copied discharge papers; clasps confirmed.

Médaille en or en l'honneur du Major ...

September 12, 2015, 10:00 AM CET

1806 St-Légier-La Chiésaz, Switzerland

Estimated Price: CHF20,000 - CHF30,000

Description: Médaille en or en l'honneur du Major General Alexander Macomb (1782-1841) remise par le Président des Etats-Unis à la demande du Congrès produite par la United States mint commémorant son action lors de la bataille de Plattsburgh le 11 septembre 1814. L'avers représente le buste du Major General Alexander Macomb vêtu de son uniforme militaire. Le revers représente une vue de la bataille de Plattsburgh avec les troupes traversant la rivière Saranac au 1er plan puis les fortifications avec la ville de Plattsburgh en flamme et enfin sur la gauche la bataille navale en cours diam: 6 4 cm 248g Héros militaire américain nommé Commandant Général de l'armée des États-Unis il a été acclamé "The Hero of Plattsburgh" après la victoire renversante de la bataille de Plattsburgh. Né le 3 avril 1782 fils d'un brillant militaire il commença sa carrière dans les Rangers de New York en 1798. Diplômé de l'Académie militaire en 1802 il fut promu successivement Capitaine Major Lieutenant Colonel Adjudant Général Brigadier puis Major Général en 1819 et Commandant Général des armées en 1828. Ces brevets portent les signatures d'illustres Président tels que George Washington Thomas Jefferson...Grand esprit et fin stratège Alexander Macomb fut l'auteur en 1840 d'un ouvrage intitulé «The Practice of Court Martial » avant de mourir en 1841. Lors de la bataille de Plattsburgh le 11 septembre 1814 grâce à ses compétences de commandant sur le terrain et à l'ingéniosité de sa manoeuvre le Général Macomb a retardé l'invasion britannique jusqu'à la victoire du lac Champlain. Cette bataille est l'une des plus impressionnantes de l'histoire américaine. En effet seuls 3400 hommes étaient engagés pour vaincre les forces anglaises adverses soit plus de 11'000 hommes. Le Général fin stratège utilisa la tactique militaire dite des « abatis » faisant abattre des arbres occultant des tranchées pour tenir les Britanniques à distance. En remerciement pour ses services le Président par la résolution du Congrès du 3 novembre 1814 a remis au Major Général Macomb une médaille en or unique commémorant cette bataille. La dite résolution disait ainsi « Resolutions expressive of the sense of Congress of the gallantry and good conduct with which the reputation of the arms of the United States has been sustained by the Major Général Macomb. ». La médaille lui a ainsi été remise en 1815 par le Président des Etats-Unis James Madison. On joint à la médaille une lettre manuscrite issue du Département de la Guerre datée du 26 mai 1815 et signée par le secrétaire à la Guerre Alexander J. Dallas (1759-1817). Cette lettre annonce au Général Macomb la résolution du Congrès le concernant et la remise de la médaille en or par le Président des Etats-Unis. Le Major Général Alexander Macomb reste encore aujourd'hui une figure importante de l'histoire américaine. Une ville a ainsi été baptisée en son nom dès 1830. De nombreuses rues ou monuments attestent de l'importance du Major Général Macomb notamment sa statue en bronze à Detroit et son monument funéraire au cimetière du Congrès à Washington. Provenance : descendante directe Susan Watts Macomb (1849-1928). En effet la petite-fille du Major Général Macomb Susan Watts Macomb épousa Frédéric Sears Ier Grand d'Hauteville. La médaille est restée dès lors dans la famille jusqu'à ce jour. Congressional Medal in honnor of Major General Alexander Macomb (1782-1841) presented by the President of the United State by Congress' request produced by the United States mint commemorating his achievements at the Battle of Plattsburgh on 11 September 1814. The obverse represents the bust of Major General Alexander Macomb in military uniform. The reverse represents a view of the Battle of Plattsburgh with troops crossing the Saranac river in the foreground the fortifications and town in flames with the naval battle in the background diam. 6.4 cm 248g American military hero appointed Commander-in-chief of the United States Army was acclaimed "The Hero of Plattsburgh" after the astounding victory at the Battle of Plattsburgh. Born on April 3 1782 son a military great he started his career with the New York Rangers in 1798. Graduating from the Military Academy in 1802 he was promoted successively to Captain Major Lieutenant Colonel Adjudant general Brigadier Major General in 1819 and then General-in-chief of the Army in 1828. The certificates of appointment bear the signatures of Presidents such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. Great mind and astute strategist Alexander Macomb was the author of "The Practice of Courts Martial" published in 1840 before his death in 1841.At the Battle of Plattsburgh on September 11 1814 General Macomb fought off the British invasion. Using his knowledge of the land and with ingenious manoeuvres the enemy was held off until the victory at Lake Champlain. This battle is one of the most impressive in American history. Only 3 400 troops were deployed against 11 000 of the British allied forces. Being a great strategist the General employed a manoeuvre known as abatis which involves knocking down trees to form a barrier and create a fortification. This was very skilfully executed hence the British numbers diminished rapidly. In recognition for his services the President awarded Major General Macomb with a unique gold medal by the resolution of Congress on November 3 1814 which commemorated this battle. The resolution stated Resolutions expressive of the sense of Congress of the gallantry and good conduct with which the reputation of the arms of the United States has been sustained by the Major General Macomb. The medal was officially awarded to him in 1815 by President of the United States James Madison. Along with the medal is a handwritten letter issued by the United States Department of War dated May 26 1815 and signed by War secretary Alexander J. Dallas (1759-1817). This letter informs General Macomb of the resolution of Congress and his being awarded a gold medal by the President of the United States. Major General Alexander Macomb remains an important figure in American history. A town founded in 1830 was also named after him Macomb McDonough County Illinois. Road names and monuments also pay tribute to Major General Macomb as well as his bronze statue in Detroit and funerary monument at the Congress of Washington. Provenance: by direct descent Susan Watts Macomb (1849-1928). The grand-daughter of Major General Macomb Susan Watts Macomb married Frederic Sears I Grand d'Hauteville. The medal has remained in the family to the present day.
