    Hi Paul yes info is very hard to find even in Myanmar not many people can correctly translate the back of the medals, nor tell you what they are given for. The large gold award is a golden jubilee award for the armed forces from 1945 - 1995. What is it given for still not sure, but have been told not vey common and normally given to higher ranking members of the military I am hoping to find a ex military serviceman who maybe able to help with some more info on Myanmar awards. Earlier dated awards such as the 1980's are also not as common as awards given in the 1990's on, and sounds like anything after 2000 is not dated as much regards C

    The last star is a long service award, I have been told for 40 years service in the armed forces

    Hello all please find my small but growing collection of Myanmar medal. I would also appreciate any assistance in identifying the awards. I have noticed that trying to buy awards in Myanmar is very mixed as there are a few basic medals displayed on market stall, but the higher end or better items are still very guarded and it takes a level of trust for them to be shown to you. If the seller trusts and likes you and you don't try and drive prices too low they will by all accounts try and get more for you on the next visit to them. I have even had a seller offer me three more Order of the Star of Revolution 3rd class which I am thinking of buying. In regards to the value of Myanmar is there any guide in regards to market value? regards and thanks C ' alt='' class='ipsImage' width="793px" height="750px"> ' alt='' class='ipsImage' width="562px" height="750px"> ' alt='' class='ipsImage' width="572px" height="750px"> ' alt='' class='ipsImage' width="404px" height="750px"> ' alt='' class='ipsImage' width="793px" height="750px"> ' alt='' class='ipsImage' width="404px" height="750px"> ' alt='' class='ipsImage' width="572px" height="750px"> ' alt='' class='ipsImage' width="562px" height="750px">

    Thought I would share my first group of Myanmar medals. One is a group of three with the first one having what looks like a palm leaf attachment to it - any ideas what this would be for? I paid a total of $12 for all four and have the miniatures for the group of three which cost $1.00. I have seen lots of other medals in the markets but mostly without ribbons. If I manage to find and buy more will post C

  8. Just wanted to share some of my Indian medal collection. I have just started collecting Indian medals and like the fact that a majority are numbered and named. I find that they are not as easy to find to buy as other countries, but maybe that will be some of the fun in collecting Indian medals Caz

  11. Hello all I am just trying to see if there is a medal roll for British and South Africa troops for the Zulu Rebellion of 1906 as I am trying to check the entitlement of someone I am researching regards an thanks in advance Caz
  12. Hi Mike thanks for that. The reason I am enquiring is that on his South Africa Service Record it states he was involved in the Zulu Rebellion. I also have his medal roll for the Boer war in which he was in the Coldstream Guards. His SA units where the Natal Carbineers, 2nd and 6th S.A.I. and he served in both German South West and East Africa during WW1 so he may have been in a SA unit at the time regards and thanks Caz
