Francis Deane Russell is my great great Uncle. He spent his entire life fighting, a most distignuished and wonderful life when you read his diaries. I have been desperately trying to purchase these medals back into the family. Sadly Spinks dropped the ball and let them go despite me being in contact with them for over 8 years when the medals came back to the market after the previous owner passed away. I was in direct contact with them. I would be interested to purchase the collection from the current owner for obvious reasons and would be most grateful for the opportunity to bring them back into the family fold.
