Good Evening Everyone......

Wondering who the fool that purchased this from Ebay..... Well here I am..... LOL
Now to find out who James Higgett is and what did he do.....

Mike

The medal grouping that was awarded to Colonel James Huggett Esq.
The Queens South Africa medal from the Boer War is engraved, not pressed. The rim shows: J. HUGGETT ESQ.
The British War and Victory medals from WWI are named the same: COL. J. HUGGETT
My late husband's notes indicate he was the financial advisor to General Edmund Allenby. That he had over 40 years of service (the note also says Ireland). He has #527 next to the CBE in his notes.
I was not able to find anything specific on James Huggett except mention of private papers that put him in Egyptian Expeditionary Force in 1918 in the financial advisor's office.

I have found that the #527 is the issue number for the CBE but there is no Bio......

Must admit that I was tempted.
Good luck with the research.

In respect of his QSA from the Army Headquarter Staff, there is the following annotation "Chief Clerk to Financial Adviser" with his three state clasp entitlement "struck out" which does seem ironic in his particular case.

Good Morning and Thanks Frank and Steve....

I have been able to find him in Burke's 1921 Order of the British Empire book but a very small (2 lines) bio..... Also found him on FMP and got his LG notification about his MID.....

Mike,

A very nice group of medals.

He seems to have kept a low profile.

I checked in Who Was Who's cumulative index and there are two Huggetts mentions but these are Arthur St George and Esther Margaret.
