The white stuff is brasso or something of that like that Dad used to polish them, I have just never had the heart to remove it, as I know how much pride he had for them, and can visualize him polishing them prior to parading on Rememberance Day

The reverse of the Newfoundland Medal

Never seen that Newfoundland Volunteer Medal before, thanks for posting that a pretty scarce award ! Is it named at all ?

What did he serve on during WW2 ?

My grandfather was a RNR Skipper and was called up in 1939 and served until end of the war. He served on trawlers doing mine clearance for convoys in the North Atlantic.

The Newfoundland Medal is #1839, he served on Destroyers for the most part, but he also was on an aircraft carrier when he first joined up?

Is there a problem withh the "Add attachments" as nothing I do will let me add an attachment. It does take .jpg files correct?
