  5. @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

    Named to Lt. Col O.P. Dutta of Arty, there is a progression in rank from captain to Lt. Col
  7. 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. "

    Here is a territorial army medal group, which lives with me A territorial army decoration group
  9. INDIA -- Videsh Seva Medal

    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
  10. INDIA -- Videsh Seva Medal

    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
  11. INDIA -- Videsh Seva Medal

    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.
  12. PAKISTAN -- Tamgha-i-Diffa, 1948--

    HI Ehjaz we are waiting for the scan, I have contacted a source in pakistan but he is not aware of existence of any such clasp.
  13. I recently came across an Air Crew Europe Star at ebay which is named to Corporal G. Wilson of the Royal Canadian Air Force. it looks pretty ok to me however I am kind of confused with the details on the medal as naming looks ok to me (Boots naming?) but its inscription says he was born on the 5.2.1921 and died on the 14.11.1943. Although I primarily collect Indian post 1947 medals this one caught my attention I have placed my bid but not too sure if it’s genuine or not but it is worth a try. Any opinions on this star?

    I have one named to IC-337 Lt. CE James 8 Punjab Regt, and I am looking for some info on him I will appriciate if anyone can help me to research this officer. Thanks
  15. Regiment ID help

    Tailor copies are easy to spot, usually medals are made from individual suppiers so difference is common however if you check the regimental numbers and deployment details then may be you can validate if the group is authentic or not. there is a possibility of Defence Sports Organisation as well which maintians ASPT (Army School of Physical Training), they have 2 big estabilshments in pune
