WW1 1916 Cased Liverpool Shipwreck & Humane Society Silver Marine Medal & Certificate For Gallantry To PC 276D John Jas Coligy Liverpool City Police Together With His Metropolitan Police Whistle & Lignum Vitae Wood Truncheon. Sn 16300 - 16300
The Liverpool Shipwreck & Humane Society was instituted on 9th January 1839 and still exists today. William Wyon (1795 -1851) was invited to design the Society’s first medal and he produced the well known design that is still used to this day. Wyon was a member of a family of renowned seal engravers and medallists and the chief engraver at the Royal Mint. There was a delay in obtaining the first medals because, when work was well advanced in June 1843 the obverse die broke owing to a flaw in the steel and Wyon fell ill, and it was not until 1844 that the Society received its first supply. On 17th October 1916 PC 276D Coligy of the Liverpool City Police bravely attempted to save a drowning man from the Liverpool docks and on the 2nd November that year the Liverpool Shipwreck & Humane Society awarded their silver medal & certificate of gallantry to the Constable for his actions. This is PC Coligy’s original Marine Medal for Gallantry with case of issue and framed certificate from the society together with the Constable’s original Liverpool Police whistle and truncheon all recently obtained from his family. The medal is contained in its leather bound wood case and is lined with blue felt and cushioned silk to fit the medal. The silk lining is manufacturer marked by ‘Oldfields Liverpool’ and the outside of the case is embossed with the Society’s device. The case is clasp fastening. The obverse of the solid silver medal has the figure of a sailor kneeling on a fragment of a wreck rescuing a child and its mother from drowning. In the background the crew of a boat can also be seen rescuing someone else from the sea, and in the distance there is a sailing ship. The inscription around the top third of the medal reads “LORD SAVE US: WE PERISH” and at the base is written “W. WYON, R.A.”. The reverse side has a wreath of oak leaves made from two branches with a hen cormorant in the centre with wings extended and bearing an olive branch in its beak. The bird was copied from the Liverpool Borough arms and is the “Liver Bird” which sits on top of the Royal Liver Building at Liverpool’s Pier Head. Between the design and the rim and fully round the circumference of the medal are the words “LIVERPOOL SHIPWRECK AND HUMANE SOCIETY 1839”. The medal has its original blue ribbon and pin clasp. The medal is 36mm diameter. The rim of the medal is engraved with the Constable’s details and date of his action. The colourful original certificate is signed and dated by the society’s chairman and secretary and dated 2nd November 1916. The certificate has original hand written account of the Constable’s actions leading to the award (illustrated in image 3). The certificate is contained in its later glazed wood frame. The certificate in its frame measures 11 ½” x 14 ½”. The whistle is nickel plated brass and has a fixed lanyard ring. The whistle is 3 ¼” length and functions as it should. The body of the whistle has manufacturer marking ‘The Metropolitan Made In England’ and ‘Liverpool City Police’. The lignum vitae wood truncheon is 15 ½” length. It has finger grooves at the grip and rope wrist cord. The wood has stable surface cracks consistent with age and service use. The price for this Police collection to a heroic Police Constable and worthy of further research includes UK delivery. Sn 16300
