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.

Russian & British Awards for the Battle of Jutland

1914-15 Star (308732. F. TICCHI. S.P.O.. R.N.); British War and Victory Medals (308732 F. TICCHI, S.P.O. R.N.); and Russia: Order of St. George, 4th Class Silver Cross (numbered "870 364". All three WWI medals are officially impressed. Board mounted, crisp detail, better than very fine. Also included is a duotang folder with his military biography, Service Records and fifteen ship photographs. Footnote: Frank Ticchi was born on January 12, 1880 in London, England and enlisted with the Royal Marines on June 15, 1898. His postings during his seven years with the Royal Marines was extensive, including: Walmer Depot (June 1898), Chatham Division (February 1899, 1900, 1901), H.M.S. Wildfire (1899, Twin Screw Sloop), Phoebe (1902, 1903 Cruiser), Mildura (1902, Cruiser), Wallaroo (1902, Cruiser) and Pylades (1903, Cruiser). On October 7, 1904, he deserted and was Court Martialed and imprisoned forty-two days for his actions on November 26, 1904. After serving his sentence, he returned to H.M.S. Pylades on January 14, 1905 and was later discharged on August 25, having never attained any other rank other than Private in the Royal Marines. Immediately after his discharge from the Royal Marines, he enlisted with the Royal Navy on August 26, 1905 and was designated Stoker 2nd Class at H.M.S. Pembroke, Shore Base and Dockyard. The following year saw him posted to H.M.S. Roxburgh, a Cruiser, on September 7, 1906, attaining the rank of Stoker 1st Class nine days later. Pre-WWI, he saw numerous postings, including: H.M.S. Pembroke again (1906, 1907, 1910, 1913), Roxburgh again (1906), Hawke (1907, Edgar Class Cruiser), Blenheim (1907, Cruiser), Magnificent (1910, Majestic Class Battleship), Irresistable (1911, Formidable Class Battleship), King Edward VII (1911, Battleship) and Actaeon (1913, Torpedo School, Sheerness). After being promoted to Leading Stoker on February 19, 1914, he was ordered to H.M.S. Tyne, a Destroyer Depot Ship based on the Firth of Forth and from which the 8th Destroyer Flotilla served the Grand Fleet. As many of the Russian decorations were awarded for the Battle of Jutland, it is probable he was on one of the destroyers in this operation. May 1, 1915 saw another rank change, this time to Stoker Petty Officer. After stops with Pembroke (1917, 1918) and Actaeon (1917), he began service with H.M.S. Cygnet on April 23, 1917 and was there until the termination of the war. Post-war, saw additional postings to H.M.S. Dido (1919, Cruiser, Destroyer Depot Ship), Montrose (1919, Scott Class Destroyer), Blenheim (1919, Cruiser, Destroyer Depot Ship) and once again, Pembroke (1920). Five months later, on October 25, 1920, he was pensioned and placed into the Royal Fleet Reserve. (BGR256)
