There is a Warhurst family fromBirkenhead so I will do some checking, there are several Walter Warhursts- do you want to sell this medal?
I missed out on a very interesting Warhurst medal some years ago that went up for auction in UK. I would love to know where that ended up. The auction house did not even bother to answer my query
Solomon Warhurst must have been an interesting individual, his medal was for the 1861 Indian Mutiny - he went to Nz and served with the Taranaki home guard, then went to Australia and then back home to England where he married again late in life and died there. We have so much history on this man so it was a real disappoinment to miss out on his medal.
Did your granfather have family that served? Maybe like me he purchased it a fair or auction. I think it was good of you to try to find out information on Walter. Jenny Sandercock South Australia
