  1. Have recently had a chance to examine a genuine WW2 DFC Typhoon Pilots tunic and comparing it with the one shown above I would say its a good one and would be happy to have it myself. A close up of the medal ribbons would be helpful because obviously they can be added but the make up and materials of the tunic look good. Simon.
  2. Another excellent addition to your collection and an excellent write up, thanks. Regards Simon.
  3. Another very nice item to add to your collection, never seen one for Newport before, thanks for posting. Regards Simon.
  4. Recent 28mm projects

    Colin, Have just seen this, congratulations again on some superb work, Excellent. Simon.
  5. Recent 1/9 busts

    Superbly painted, many thanks for showing us, more to follow I hope? Regards Simon.
  6. Very nice and would fit well with this uniform, would also need the Swan feather plume for the hat. Regards Simon
  7. Very nice uniform but I do not think it is Military, looks like a Victorian Lord Lieutenant or Deputy Lord Lieutenants uniform to me. See here for similar https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/chorleys-auctioneers-and-valuers/catalogue-id-srcho10019/lot-fd72d7ff-70cf-4bb1-b988-a4cf00e9634e Regards Simon
  8. Superb stuff, well done and thanks for posting. Simon.
  9. Congratulations on a positive identification, however long it took, personally I really enjoy that positive discovery or confirmed identification however long it takes. Regards Simon.
  10. Can we see the reverse and have the dimensions please Bill? Simon
  11. Ahh, well done, I remember the thread now. Simon
  12. Kris, Well done, look forward to an update on what you have. Simon.
  13. Well someone paid £67 for this, hope they are happy when it arrives! Simon
  14. Ian, Forgot to ask have you got your Great Uncle's medals or know where they are? I see he is also entitled to a SWB for his injuries Certificate number 291290 and address given as 3 West Terrace, Redcar. Simon
  15. What a shame. must have read it, Hopefully its still on here somehwere. Simon.
  16. Ian, As a start his Medal Index Card shows his WW1 Medal entitlement as the British War Medal and Victory Medal recorded on Roll 01/1/165B46 Page 11064, do you have them or they still in the Family? The Medal roll confirms that he served in 24/27th, 25th and 12/13th Battalions as you said. Will try and see if his Service or Attestation Forms are still available. Simon
  17. Tony, Will try and work through what you have as I can Mate. Regards Simon Lovely and rare medal Stuka, what research have you on her? Simon.
  18. Ian, Welcome to the Forum, will see what I can find and get back to you as time allows. Regards Simon.
  19. An excellent photograph, thanks for showing us. Nice clear image of the sporran and cantle badge, Regards Simon
  20. Hendrik, Thanks for that information. Simon.
  21. Still a superb group and one with plenty of ongoing research potential! Keep us updated! Regards Simon.
  22. Tony, Have you done any research on these Medals so far, a write up on each would make good reading if you have. Simon.
  23. That is awful! As you say a laughable attempt at faking a tipstaff, give the Seller his due though he has put a question mark after the title! Simon
  24. 14-15 Star naming problem?

    Chris, To me the only cause for concern would be that the lettering looks a little large compared to other Stars I have had. The font and layout appear fine and as you say I have seen 'Private' represented in both styles. A very desirable medal bearing in mind the Unit and the fact that he was KIA with the Royal Dublin Fusiliers. Simon
  25. Hendrik, Many thanks for clearing that up, learnt a lot about Brigade Piron yesterday whilst trying to find out about his medal entitlement. Am I right in thinking that his British medals would be worn after his Belgian awards and were they permitted to be worn in uniform whilst on duty? Regards Simon.
