Henry Gunner - The Wheatsheaf Wateringbury

Sadly the below email was stuck in the ether for several months and the below opportunity no longer exists to purchase the medals. I do though feel it would be good to leave the information on the website just for reference.

First of all, let me congratulate you on your very interesting and well documented website. It is so fascinating to read and to look at the old photographs.
Now, please allow me to introduce myself. I am a Military dealer/researcher from Bournemouth. Recently I was sold some 1st W.W. medals that had been rescued from a“tip” near Oxford. The medals are the usual “Pip,  Squeek and Wilfred”. That is the 1914-15 Star, silver War Medal & the end of War Victory Medal. They are all correctly named to 61294 DVR. H.GUNNER. I have been on Ancestry this morning and discovered that Henry Gunner lived at the Wheatsheaf Inn at Wateringbury. He was 38 years old when enlisting for 1st W.W. service and gave his occupation as licensee. His next of kin was listed as Emily Gunner of the Wheatsheaf.  Henry married Emily in 1911 in Tonbridge.(a widow previously known as Emily Fagg).  Emily had a daughter from a previous marriage Freda Fagg.  Henry was invalided out of the Army (a driver with the Royal Engineers), but I have not discovered why.  If anyone would be interested in purchasing these medals before I put them on the open market I would be happy to offer them at a special price.  £60.00 plus postage.
Yours sincerely,
