  3. I've asked the opinion of an expert Masonic jewels and he doesn't believe that they are Masonic, but are most likely connected to the City of London, perhaps from a Livery Company or someone connected with The Lord Mayor’s Show.
  4. That's what I suspected. Any idea what they might be? I considered Alderman, Freeman of the City or perhaps something Masonic, but I have been unable to find examples of anything remotely similar.
  5. Ladies/Gents, I'd be grateful for any assistance, in identifying "medals" 4 & 5.

  7. No collar dogs and medal ribbons in the right order, back of the net!!!!!!!!!!
  8. The search to track down a copy of this book, that isn't going to require a remortgage of my home, nearly got one for just under £30............. But going down another avenue of the Palestine Police if I may, can anyone tell me what range of numbers they used for collar numbers and did they re use them? I've found examples of medals to men with just two digits right up to 3000? I assume they started at 1 in 1920 so to have got to 3000, by 1948 isn't unrealistic. Assuming that they didn't reuse numbers, is there a roll by which you can put a name to a number?

  10. Found this Roll of Honour, not sure it's definitive or just for this cemetery?
