    Indian Naval Officer - Medal ID please

    Thanks James. Will have a look at this once I'm back home. Most of these pin-head sized states are more interesting than the BIG ones like Baroda or J&K! Cheers Sushil

    James, These are not medals of Jath State, which was only 980 sq miles in Kolhapur and Deccan States area and there are no records of any medals being struck by Jath. As far as I can remember (remember) Jath was not a Princely State but a Zamindari where the Zamindar held the title of Raja not to be mistaken for Raja which the British recognised as royalty. Perhaps Ed can add something here. Cheers Sushil

    James, Exactly what Ed mentions for both the points. The three medals are surely those of some Indian Princely State/s, the question is which one/s? Rgds Sushil

    A very interesting group indeed. Which are the the three medals before the Independence Medal? And, why a Pacific Star? Should be a Burma Star. Cheers Sushil
  13. James, Why don't you send a mail to the Sqn Ldr at the USI and ask for the pictures/scans? I'm sure that will not be a problem for them. Rgds Sushil
  14. James, Believe me the book is just fine in terms of the content, quality of print and the binding. This was one of the things the USI was particulat about. Rgds Sushil
  15. Gentlemen, I assure you it will be a worthy collection to your library. As ever Sushil
