HISTORY of Lancelot Oliphant (acquired on Wikipedia which more information can be acquired):

Born: October 8, 1881

Died: October 2, 1965

Sir Lancelot Oliphant, KCMG, CB (8 October 1881 – 2 October 1965) was a British diplomat, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary  to Belgium, Minister-Plenipotentiary to Luxembourg and Director General of the Foreign Office.

His decision that Britain would neither join nor fund a joint partnership with Saudi Arabia to explore for oil, thus forcing the Saudis to cooperate with the United States, left him with the unwanted sobriquet The diplomat who said 'No' to Saudi oil.

The lot comes as shown with everything in the photos, nothing has been added or removed from it.It is scare to find British Diplomatic grouping that are named to famous personalities.
