  1. Here is a Antarik Suraksha Medal
  2. Hello Hoopa, Yes there is a certificate associated with every foreign mission you go are chosen for, for an example the U.N. medal and videsh seva medal associated to it will also have a completion/commendation certificate from head of mission and force commander.
  3. Hi Cazack, Following are a few good contacts 1. Goga jain from Gole market near to Connought place. 2. Army Equippers can be a good option for ribbons (no medals) provided owner is in good mood. 3. Rakesh Jain from Manidhari Jewellers near to Gurudwara chandani Chowk 4. Vijay Kumar near to Sikh museum chandani Chowk 5. GD Verma & Sons chandani Chowk for ribbons. I hope you will find this helpful. Thanks
  4. This is British Indian blood donor badge
  5. His General Service medal would be with clasp Jammu and Kashmir 1947 missed out mentioning that
  6. I will try to figure out the ribbon bar, since it's a black and white picture that makes it little difficult guess. Top left to right - 1. General Service medals 2. Paschimi Star 3. Samar Seva Star, 4. Raksha Medal 5. Ribbon not clear (possibly Sangram) 6. Sainya Seva Medal (possibly there but not clear in pic) 7. 20 years long service medal 8. 9 year long service medal 9. Indian independence medal 10. 1939 - 45 star 11. Burma Star 12. British war medal 13. India service medal I hope you find this helpful
  7. @peter monahan this is Burmese equivalent to title badge, the difference is this is made out of gold and title badges were struck in silver Yes Mike it seems it's referring to it's content. There were 3 categories if this medal, however I have never seen other two
  8. Named to Lt. Col O.P. Dutta of Arty, there is a progression in rank from captain to Lt. Col
  9. Not sure if this Burmese award is included in forum Sadly this is a unnamed medal Google search says "A large (51mm) gold medal awarded during the colonial period. The Burmese on reverse reads: Ahmu-dan-gaung Tazeik-ya Min (An official who has been awarded the medal for good service) and entitled to use the letters ATM after his name. The two other levels of the order were: Kyet thaye zaung Salweya Min (An official who has been awarded the Sash of Glory) and used the letters KSM after name; Thuye gaung ngwe Daya Min (An official who has been awarded the Silver Sword for Heroism) and used the letters TDM after name. "
  10. Here is a territorial army medal group, which lives with me A territorial army decoration group
  11. For sure Peter, Yes you are spot on, I am based in India, with my primary collection theme as post 1947 Indian Army, state and police medals. It's always a pleasure to help fellow collectors as I have been helped by many time and again, if I can be a help to anyone it will be nice
  12. Hi Brian, You are a respected & learned senior collector and you surely know more people in the hobby then we newbies would know. We would for sure need your guidance and help Regards Amit
  13. Woah too many posts, didn't even realized I logged in after good 5 years Sahi, it's a nice thought however getting hold of a unnamed videsh Seva Medal will be difficult as maximum number of times they are awarded via regiments and many a times quarter masters are in charge of naming them, since you are serving in armed forces you may find one of you have good connects. Raksha Medal medal is tricky, let me see if I have any in spare I do remember picking a lot of 20 from Chennai based dealer.
