Default Talk about jumping on the band wagon..........

Found this on a medal dealers list, thought it might be amusing to share and get people's feedback, before you read the below, make note of the fact that the dealer wants......£260 for this trio.

Victorian issue 1887 Metropolitan Police Jubilee medal with clasp '1897' (P C. H. Duchemin. X. DIV). Edward VII 1902 Metropolitan Police Coronation medal (P.C. H. Duchemin. X. DIV.). George V 1911 Metropolitan Police Coronation medal (P.C. H. Duchemin.) Police Constable Harry Duchemin - Doing duty during the infamous "Jack the Rippers" and the WHITECHAPEL MURDERS

Show/Hide extra details
Harry Duchemin was born in Beddington near Winchester, the eldest son of Louis Duchemin, a butcher and his wife Elizabeth residing at 43 Church Lane in Beddington. Harry now aged 20 years joined the Metropolitan Police 17 July 1882 with Warrant number 66895 serving with X Division. He resigned the force 22 July 1907, but rejoined and qualified for the 1911 Silver Coronation medal.

He would have served with the Metropolitan Police during the period of the infamous "WHITECHAPEL MURDERS" "during 1888. Harry Duchemin married at West Ham in 1892. With full details of which the above has been taken to include entry and service lists, Census entry, pension and other details to include the relative roll entry page for the 1911 Coronation and a CD with information I know not as have not uploaded to view. Medals are a pleasing close E.F. to Good E.F. A very nice long running police group to one doing duty during those "Jack the Ripper" murders.
