Tony,

Have you  done any research on these Medals so far, a write up on each would make good reading if you have.

Hi Simon

sadly I havent followed things up with research....

i used to know more about some. A couple I have MIC roll copies for somewhere but that's about it.

I'm having a serious rummage to reassess what I have. Maybe once that's done I'll spend the time looking into these properly.

Mainly I have collected Austro Hungarian pictures but even those I still haven't researched.

Only got on-line 2 years ago when my mum gave me her old I-phone!

Hey Simon,

Thanks, I like it a lot!

Found out the group she was in, along with here sister.

The sister also got the BWM and a other higher medal.

I posted it all on this forum a few years ago, but I can't find it again...

Special to it was that it came from a house clearing with a German (very nice ) officer pickelhaube with a old news paper page in it,treating about a spy story. Both must have been related one to a other, but the story is lost....

Hi Gents

when I originally posted this i now realise I should have typed the recipients details to enable interested parties to find them, which was my original intention, should they search...

so I will do so shortly...

 

———///——-

Gents,

i have said before elsewhere here that I habitually bit on BWM.

Currently I bid 11 pounds, scrap value being 10 pounds or so. If someone else pays 11.50 and postage then I like to believe they want the medal itself.

Recently I acquired this one.....

The medal I received was issued to:

109077 C.Q.M. SJT. G. SPEED. R.E.

Service number 109077. Company Quarter Master Serjeant G Speed of the Royal Engineers.

So Gents, my point is, if you feel the same about saving these and like BWM anyway then give it a go....

cheers gents

tony
