  1. Think his rank was Water Carrier, so F might be 'Follower' as in Camp Follower?
  2. Hello, Does anyone know the significance of "F" on an Indian soldiers service number on a 1939-45 War Medal - as in "F/51"? Thanks, Duncan.

  7. Hello folks, I've just got hold of an Africa Star to 22358 Rfn. Kanhaya Ram, Raj. Rif. from a dealer in India. I'm assuming this is Rajputana Rifles. Can anyone tell me, would this be the 6th Rajputana Rifles and if so where did they serve to be awarded the Africa Star? Also, would they be entitled to the 1st or 8th Army clasp? Thank you. Duncan.

    My first Finnish medal

    It's the Finnish Commemorative Medal for the War of Liberation. It's a nice medal and genuine. 30 Euros is an ok price. Ribbon should be easy enough to find, someone on this site might know where to get one from.
  9. Thanks everyone. I thought DMT may be Driver Motor Transport?
  10. Hello, Is anyone able to identify this lapel badge at all? I have a vague idea that it might be Bavarian - based on the blue ribbon, and it came with some German and Austrian medals I bought - bur I really don't have a clue! Regards, Duncan.
