Hammer Price:

A Great War 'M.C.' group of four to Captain J.A. Wiseman, Welsh Guards, late Royal Scots

MILITARY CROSS, G.V.R., reverse engraved (Capt., Welsh Guards, 5th October 1917); BRITISH WAR AND VICTORY MEDALS (2.Lieut.); TERRITORIAL FORCE WAR MEDAL (1372 Sjt., R. Scots) very fine (4)

J.A. Wiseman was commissioned into the Welsh Guards on 27 June 1917. He was not, however, awarded the M.C. and even the date engraved on his cross spells a lie, as Wiseman was on furlough on this date!
