Naval General Service Medal 1793, clasp Phoebe 28 March 1814 named ‘GEORGE FEAR’. This is a unique name on the roll and one of just 31 Phoebe 28 March 1814 clasps issued, of which only 21 are to unique names. George Fear enlisted in the Royal Marines on 17th March 1806, joining HMS Canopus on 13th June 1806 until 10th Feb 1812. On 27th March 1812, he joined HMS Phoebe, being Paid off on 28th August 1815. He was finally discharged as undersize on 29th Sept 1815. The inherent drama of the chase by Phoebe and final capture of Essex inspired the plot of Patrick O’Brian’s novel ‘The Far Side of the World’, although in its movie adaptation ‘Master & Commander’, the American Frigate is transformed into a French Privateer. ‘Hunting the Essex. A Journal of the Voyage of HMS Phoebe 1813-1814.’ By Midshipman Allen Gardiner of the Phoebe, gives us unique insights into the actual voyage and hunt for the USS Essex and the Battle of Valparaiso Bay. Sold with copy musters, medal rolls and research on CD and ‘Hunting the Essex’ book. Reconstituted from original parts. Medal one time swing brooch mounted, resulting in much wear to rim and consequential loss/faintness of naming and plug at 6 o’clock.

Waterloo Medal 1815, to ‘CAPTAIN FRANCIS READ, ROYAL STAFF CORPS’.  Captain Francis Mackalean (Mackelcan) Read of the Royal Staff Corps. Born 15th September 1787 and died in June 1829 in Canada whilst still serving, working on the construction of the Grenville Canal in Quebec. He served in the Peninsula at Cadiz, Tariffa and in various parts of Peninsula from April 1810 to April 1814 and also at Waterloo, where he served on the Staff Officer Commanding a detachment of the Royal Staff Corps at the Battle of Barossa where they acted as infantry. Read was MID’s at the taking of Seville and Wellington mentions him in a letter as being sent to survey the course of the Tietar in Dec 1812. From December 1814 seems to have had something to do with maps in the field. He was clearly a talented draftsmen and due to the nature of their job, Staff Corps Officers were often to be found ahead of the Army with ‘exploring officers’ and during battle were used to liaise between commanders or as ADC’s. 9 Staff Corps Officers were at Waterloo (3 Captains) and Read was serving in the important Staff Position of Deputy Assistant Quartermaster General at the Battle. The nature of the job meant it was a dangerous one, of the 12 DAQG’s, four were wounded and another had four horses shot from under him. Fitted with original steel clip, silver bar suspension and silver ribbon buckle. A rare medal to an interesting unit. With copied research, including Read and the Staff Corps in Canada.
