Soldier's war medal, up for sale on Internet, goes 'home'





A Canadian museum has won its fight for a Hawick soldier's war medal which appeared for auction on the internet.

Curator John Robertson said it had been a "bumpy ride" but confirmed it had added Sgt Frederick Shipley's Memorial Cross to the collection in Welland.

The medal appeared on eBay in August prompting the museum to bid for it.
