UPDATE No. 42.

Monthly update on progress of the Golly reference material and other topics for 1-Feb-20…

January saw the first ever GOLLY AUCTION by the Golly Checklist team complete successfully. Almost 100 badges were on offer and it was great to see so many people taking part. Up for grabs were badges from all era’s from rare prewar designs to the colourful acrylics. As expected most badges sold at very reasonable prices and some wiley collectors took the opportunity to add some of the scarcer items to their collection... the star of the show being a genuine HMS Crichton design for under £200.

The results of the auction will remain in the ‘Past Auctions’ section of the Golly Guide. Over time it is expected to be a useful resource to assist collectors with a guide to current prices.

As we are in the trial phase of the Golly Auction we may try out different formats to see what works best. Full details will be announced in due course.

The next auction is scheduled to open from 1-Feb-2020 for all subscribers to the Golly Guide and conclude on 15th Feb at 1pm. As before, subscribers get exclusive viewing for the first week.


January has been a dry month for Golly Guide updates. This is expected to be the case until the end of March as spend our time on the Golly Auction. But if we can fit in any updates we certainly will.

That's all for this month...

See you next month for another update!
