Morgan fought with the Royal Welch Fusiliers

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 It has since been replaced by the George Cross.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).
