  1. Hi Simon, Looks like 2026 Pte. C. Findlay of the Military Mounted Police, some of the details after the M were rubbed..........looks interesting.
  2. I have a tel el kebir and khedive pair that I am trying to research but struggling. Some of the details are rubbed, what I can make out is the service number starts 20 (I think) followed by Findlay Mil:M. Only one I could find was Captain Charles Findlay but wishful thinking they belonged to him. Trying to get a list of all Findlay who served to try and narrow it down. Another pic Another pic
  3. I have a Wiltshire regiment Qsa Ksa pair that I would like to restore to their former glory. The suspender bar has been modified on both to be worn as pendants (I think). Has anyone changed a bar before and any advice? It will be a long process to get the parts and replace them but that's the plan.
  4. Thanks all for replying, I think in future I will leave them in their original condition. I haven't cleaned them all and will leave the others as is. I'm gradually trying to build up a set of GSMs and a long way to go
  5. Hi Peter, just seen your response, excellent! Thank you for this. The discharge papers may be interesting. When I got the medals there was a hm submarines cap tally but now don't look related.
  6. I purchased a mercantile marine pair and from the national archives purchased the medal card but how do I research what ship he served on and build up a picture if the history behind the medals. Any info is appreciated.
  7. I have a few GSM medals that have small black marks that I can't seem to remove, I have have tried silver polish but no joy. What causes these and can they be removed? Palestine and Cyprus
  8. Sorry that link is: Http//1915crewlists.rmg.CO.uk Interesting site.
  9. Hi Simon, Thank you for the welcome, looks a great forum. Thanks for your help and getting back to me. Yes, the medals and cap tally came together, really nice condition I found a useful resource: HTTP://crewlists.rmg.co.UK There is a reference to j b Kinniburgh from Cadder who served on Alcinous (Laconia before that), perhaps family member. Best regards, J
  10. I collect medals based on the item rather than the history but want to do research on the ones I have, for example I have a mercantile marine war pair to Thomas Kinniburgh with HM Submarines cap tally but can find no info on it. What is the best way to research my medals? Thanks guys.
