  1. If you could get an approximate date of when the PCO was awarded to the officer then a look through the Ordens Almanac should turn up some prospects.
  2. Below are a photo and a description of a tanker uniform from Research Rick's collection. I would like to get a value so I can sell it. The boots and belt are not with it. Any help is appreciated. The condition is without damage.
  3. Thanks for moving this post. Now the people who could give a value will not see it. You could have at least given me a heads up before moving it!
  4. Start by looking through the 1918 Navy Ranklist.
  5. Aisle C, Row 4, Crate 12.

    Very nice arrangement. Did you biuld all of the cabinets?
  6. Hello All, The about man was from Rutherford, NJ, USA and enlisted in the Canada Flying Corps during WWI. He transferred to the RAF and is listed in the British Book of Remembrance for WWI. Can anyone provide any additional info about him? What does P.P.C.L.I. stand for? Thanks.
  7. Yes, His name is listed on the WWI memorial in Rutherford, NJ.
  8. Very odd, Bavarian jubilee medal with Prussian long service medal. Can anyone explain?
  9. Change

    Brian, I always love to read what you write. You have such a wonderful way of putting things. Change, in any form, has always been very difficult for me. If it was up to me America would always be as it was in the 1920's, but for that to happen the rest of the world would have to be in the same time period. Would that be a good thing? Most likely not. Change at times is progress and at other times digression. You mentioned your six daughter, you are a fortunate man, but understand this come form a man who has no children. If things did not change you would have six teenage daughters fighting to use the bathroom for eternity.
  10. I have never seen those before. They are rather interesting.
  11. Be very careful at the SOS. When it comes to ribbon bars there are more fakes then good. If you consider buying one from a dealer ask him if it is all real and if he says yes, ask how he knows.
  12. I was going to do an updated reprint of volume 1 but decided against it.
  13. I really like it. It speaks of British pride.
  14. Opinions on cleaning EGA

    I have to stick my two cents in. I would leave it as is, but remove any dirt with a very gentle brush.
