What's a max bid?

Your maximum bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.

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.

He finished out his war service on the River Class gunboat H.M.S. Humber in the Mediterranean, with terms between each posting at the R.M.L.I. Depot in Chatham. Post War, he served aboard H.M.S. Hannibal, Caesar, Egmont, Ramillies, Weymoth and Caledon, with intermittent postings in Chatham. His term on enlistment ended in 1924, when he then joins the Royal Naval Fleet Reserve for an additional eight years. After fifteen years' service, he was awarded the Royal Fleet Reserve Long Service and Good Conduct Medal. Upon his discharge from Active Service, Sudlow joined the Civil Service and was later awarded the Imperial Service Medal for twenty-five years' faithful service and then retired.
