  3. I have a set of WW1 medals to Private 3521 Claude BROWN of 11th Battalion AIF. He was killed in action at Pozieres on 25th July 1916. I am hoping to locate his Memorial Plaque, Memorial Scroll and King's Message (I know, a needle in a huge haystack!). If anyone can assist in locating these it would be greatly appreciated. Also any info of likely sources, websites to search etc would be great! David
  4. Hello Mike, Yes, the time gap from the centre of the medal world can be an issue. I find it particularly bad on UK Ebay bids. I put in a bid on something closing during the middle of my night and I very often get done by someone in the UK who can think about it and bid in the 2 or 3 seconds before close. In several cases I look at the sold price and think 'I probably would have bid more than that!' The only way to guarantee a win is to make a ridiculous max bid- and if some fool bids more than the odds my max bid could become huge while I sleep the night away! No chance of a bargain! What is your collecting area- police I assume? Kind regards David
  5. I am hoping to acquire an example of each of these- does anyone know of likely sources, dealers etc who may stock them? Also if anyone spies an upcoming auction with these listed, please let me know- as I am in Australia it is a little difficult to cover all the bases being 8 hours ahead! Cheers David
  6. Hello All, I have in my collection 3 different PLS&GC medal obverses- GVI crowned head "Britt Omn Rex Fid Def", QEII crowned head "D.G. Br. Omn" and QEII crowned head "Dei Gratia". I think that is the full set of obverse types but happy to learn more! The GVI is cupro nickel, the QEII "D.G. Br. Omn' is cupro nickel, the QEII "Dei Gratia" is rhodium plated. I think there may also be a QEII "Dei Gratia" in cupro nickel??
