  1. PS, I see your logo is an Imperial Iron Cross.  Do you collect them?  I also collect Imperial and TR cased medals and medal bars along with a variety of other stuff.

    Cheers again Michael

      Hi Michael,

       

      Not anymore these days, was amassing a large RNZAF WW2 collection and am now getting rid of it all as funds are needed elsewhere...

      Used to enjoy collectiong Imperial medalbars and had quite a collection some years ago

       

      Cheers

  2. Hi,  Just read your response to this thread and taken a look at your MD jacket.  Unfortunately, the guy was in the wrong air force for me as I try, not with much success, to stick to RAF!!  However, having said that, what are you looking for in either cash terms or trades??  Do you have any other RAF gear for down load??

     

    I too lived in Singapore for about 2 years at RAF Seletar.  Did not want to come home but had to!!

     

    Cheers  Michael

  4. Hi Guys, just a wee bit of info, the ERII badge on the first set signifies that the wearer was Equerry to the Queen. I have a Kings Crown set to a RNZAF Air commodore who was also an Equerry to Queen Elizabeth II, this pair i have are still attached to the Tropical Mess jacket he wore Cheers Paul
  5. Echoing Peter....DROOL! wish it were mine.... Nice find Chris! I thought they only practised removing the clasp "Ears" on the 1854 IGS....now i know different. Thanks for that. Cheers Paul
  6. An excellent collection of awards....and they are in NZ? thats wonderful! Thanks for sharing! Also for helping to re-unite medals to the original recipient...thats just super! KR Paul Aoteroa, Land of the long white cloud.

  10. Thankyou Gents, I am pleased to complete the group in his Honour. Yes addictive indeed! Hows your addiction coming along Laurence?? Regards Paul
  11. Gents....Behold!!! the bar is assembled finally! Doesn't it look great! and a fitting tribute to a brave Sepoy who died fighting for his country in Burma. Also attached is his Memoriam from the Commonwealth War Graves site. Enjoy! Paul
  12. Nice to see you are on this particular slippery slope there Pat! LOL Ed, Sorry to be picky...but New Zealanders did not get their medals stamped with their names...a great pity that.. Australians, Indians, And south africans did so did the ( not 100% sure here) Rhodesians and Canadians. Darrell!, nice to see the full set...i need the ACE myself.... have 7 so far... Have the 1939-45, Burma, Africa( with 1st and 8th army bars),and the Italy Stars mounted in Groups all are attributed to South African, a NZer, and a British soldiers. Have a group to the Englishman, missing the North Africa 1942-3 bar Am hoping to get a Navy bar soon with a Pacific Star with Burma bar. Laurence, i see you are too on this slippery slope...i find it really Interesting being able to research the soldiers life from having his name on the medals. Cheers Gents, Paul
  13. Hello Ed, Superb wee groups! Thanks for showing us! Love the group to Sepoy Fazal Din....Wonderful! all Victorian! just magic! Also Love the Kabul to Khandahar pair! Am getting a pair with 3 bars to a Pte in the 92nd Highlanders soon! cannot wait! Cheers Paul
  14. New EK1s

    Don, these are Very Very nice indeed! Thanks for the clarification as to why the points have the build up on them..makes perfect sense than fluff the expensive cloth and render the cloth all tatty. Thanks for showing! Kind regards Paul
