Just a few more related WW2 Medals (Except the Indian General Service Medal - It's there because it was taken with the others). The Memorial Cross is attributed to the wife's Grandfather KIA France July 1944.

Hello Darrell,

You've got some nice medals there, and I especially like the memorial cross. Were they issued in a similar way to the death plaques of WWI?

I don't think I've actually ever seen the memorial cross before, do you know if they were also issued in WWI and is there any chance of showing a close up of your wife's grandfather's cross?

Hi all.

Some very nice posts. I do like the idea of a memorial cross. i believe the New Zealand forces still do it too.

We should do something similar in UK. But then , our successive governments have never looked after its Forces. Its makes my blood boil. flame

The Canadian cross is particularly nice.

When he got to England he was initially assigned to the 9th Armoured Regiment (B.C.D) British Columbia Dragoons. He was trained as a Gunner in a Tank.

When he got to Belgium or Holland he was transferred to the Hussars :food-smiley-004:
