Thank you!  This veteran lives close to me. He has lost all his medals . I already have an original British war Medal unnamed and a original British 1939-45 Star unnamed. I want to chase up the other medals and have them court mounted for him as a gift!

Wow.  That is really nice.  Please post a photo of the final product before you send.  I know of a source for the collar insignia and chest badges if you are interested.  What was his rank?

This is the first one.  The rest you should know, right?

I am not completely sure about his rank yet. His grandson has send me some information including scans his Wehrmacht Soldbuch!!! And his British pay book!! He was captured in Monte Casino and somehow managed to joining the free Polish forces without much problems! he ended the war as a driver of a Sherman Tank in Africa! 

I would like more info about the source you mentioned!

I just knew what they were.  You can google the names of the awards and see them.  They are a match.
