Thank you all for the positive responses.

I have expanded the number of showcases and displays and will continue to do that over December when I am at home again.

I will post more photographs soon.

Regards,

Will

This is the best British Empire related medal collection I have ever seen. Completely amazing. What item are you in search for, which you do not already have? What are the top three things on your wish list?

Another frame added a few months ago.

I intend re-arranging all the frames and adding at least another two next month.

Hi Paul,

As you are aware, collecting is an on-going process and is never really complete.

I am gradually building up a collection of the various Victorian campaigns but that will stay take a long time.

During my time in Afghanistan, I collected a large variety of British India General Service medals which I will frame when I go on leave next month.

I was very fortunate to recently purchase a Sudan pair to a confirmed charger from the 21st Lancers at the Battle of Omdurman and so it continues into the various fields.

Regards,

Will

Lovely collection ..... at least I know what to aim for :-) My only problem is an issue I keep having regarding original ribbons. I always prefer original ribbons even if they look bad because I feel replacement ribbons just don't look right - for a 'historical' collection. Are your ribbons all replacement or have they just been cleaned very well?

A new frame added during my December 2012 break.

Many of the medals were acquired in Kabul when I worked in Afghanistan.

Guys

These pictures do not do Williams collection justice, one has to see them to really appreciate the collection as a whole!

Fortunately I've been privileged to have seen them and all the other items in this amazing collection on two occasions :beer:

Well done William

Brian.

Congrats on a really impressive and wonderful collection, beautifully displayed.

As a collector of over 30 years myself, in can see that the groups in your collection

are of REALLY SERIOUS QUALITY. And we will not even begin to start talking about

market value...........

Very well done.
