  4. Hi Gents not my usual thing but think this is nice find..... On their way to me still but for now these photos from the advert Hope you like tony
  5. Hi jf42 thanks for your replies all along... I don't know why having this troubles me so much. But it does. Historically prob the most significant thing I have. I've offered this to a Gent who I think, based on his posts, should have it. A gift in return for its safekeeping.... no answer yet- even to me it sounds like a scam so I understand that.... I hope he wants it. tony
  6. HELP

    Hi Gents, David, Simon i like these! id certainly give them a tin of their own and keep them together just in case.... just noticed this on the badge.... which is a good start... and the tags look good to me. As at least they match later issued ones I have - maybe other Gents know if this design matches those issued up to 1916? That he was buried at home supports the case that his effects could have made it home to a relative... I agree the glue doesn't help the chances of authenticity but a modern fraudster would have known that and not used it so I would suggest, and I personally would 'choose' to beleive, that the wings were bought in good faith by the 'keeper' of the other two items at a later date, rather than belonging to Morrell himself. I agree with Simon- they very unlikely his.... but part of the story that's lost in time! I like...., tony

  9. Hi Gents I've just been googling and sadly saw this.... the description says "old reproduction - possibly stage prop..." i still like it but... To me, if this is another one it would seem odd - unless you have bought one of a pair from the same person....? hope this helps tony
