Scarce double bravery awards to William Morgan: Medal of St John in bronze & Quiver Medal in silver (only 106 medals ever awarded). For rescuing a passenger at Portland Road Station, London on the 8th February 1894. 

The man was partially intoxicated and had fallen on the metals in front of an approaching train, but was rescued by two porters who jumped onto the line for the purpose, pushed the man under the edge of the platform and held him there until the train had passed them and was stopped. With original St John paper, 27th July 1894. An interesting lot.
