Your entered maximum bid will not be disclosed to the seller or other auction participants at any point.

Max bidding example:

If the current auction price is $100 dollars and you place a maximum bid of $120 dollars, the system will bid $101 dollars on your behalf.

If no other participant places a bid, you win that auction lot for $101 dollars.

If another auction participant places a bid of $110 dollars, the system will subsequently place a bid of $111 dollars on your behalf. The system will continue to bid in $1.00 dollar increments until your maximum bid of $120 dollars is exceeded.

If another auction participant places a bid for $125 dollars, the auction lot price will display $121 dollars having exceeded your previously submitted maximum bid by $1.00 dollar.

A Burma Theatre Military Cross Group

A Burma Theatre Military Cross Group - Military Cross, GRVI (engraved "1945" on the reverse, in case of issue); 1939-1945 Star; Burma Star; Defence Medal; and War Medal 1939-1945. Extremely fine. Accompanied by two Ribbon Bars (Military Cross, 1939-1945 Star, Burma Star, Defence Medal); two Oakleaf Clasps; one MID (178 mm x 178 mm, in original envelope); one Photograph of Henderson (68.5 mm x 90.5 mm) and research papers. Footnote: Lieutenant Henderson, The Green Howards, was MID for "Courage and personal example under heavy Japanese enemy fire" in the London Gazette on April 5, 1945 and cited for his Military Cross "In recognition of gallant and distinguished service in Burma" in the London Gazette 3381 on June 28, 1945. "Throughout the campaign from 1944 onwards this officer has been commanding a platoon. Owing to the very fine qualities of leadership shown, coupled with a tactical skill well above the average of his rank, he has been selected for a number of special jobs, all of which he has carried out with great success. His determination to accomplish the mission no matter how difficult, his courage and coolness often under intense enemy fire and his resourcefulness has been an inspiration to the men under his command. At SEKSIH on 9th March when the platoon he was with was ordered to fall back and a party became cut off he brought them back 8000 ft mountain range, avoiding the main tracks and fought his way out bringing back after a period of 10 days with little or no food, information of the highest value of enemy movements.
