  1. That's the best picture I can take close up with the camera I have. Its made of brass and it looks to me if its either first or second world war. I do not think that its a made up piece. Its the size of a normal cap badge for the ww1 ww2 period.
  2. Hi there, Is this a WW1 cap badge from either a British or Commonwealth Country. I would be very grateful for some information if you have it. Cheers, Alan
  3. Thanks very much for your help. Cheers, Alan
  4. Hi there, I'm having problems trying to find James Francis George who was awarded a George V1 Imperial Service Medal. I have tried the London Gazette (they have recently updated their site) but can't find it. I would be most grateful for some assistance! Cheers, Alan

    Trench Maps

    Hi again, You have mentioned using your war diaries. I am a member of Ancestry.co.uk and in the past I have had to go to Kew to try and view the war diaries and have had a lot of prblems in doing so. Is there any easier way of looking these up or buying the complete diary of the regiment. Cheers, Alan
