  1. Researching OR is very difficult, unless your gentlemen was into a big action which is well documented for civilians. Double strikes are indeed clerical errors and these kind of medals turn up time to time in India
  2. Hi All, I recently managed to reunite ww1 trio awarded to 2/Lt A. E. Azevedo of Royal engineers / postal department. He served as superintendent of Bombay foreign posts and was awarded MBE in 1919 and ISO in 1939. I tried looking for his photograph online but no luck, wondering any of our group members can guide me on how to get a photograph of him.
  3. Recently added a single war medal awarded to a lady for services during world war 2 British war medal - 278395 PTE NOORI BEGUM I.W.A.C. I wonder if anymore to this unit are in existence.

  5. Morton and Eden will help you
  6. You can connect with Terrence he is based out of UK and goes by name Boer to Korea at eBay.
  7. Is should be B.S.F, there is nothing like border security police i am afraid.
  8. Hello Hoopa, Yes there is a certificate associated with every foreign mission you go are chosen for, for an example the U.N. medal and videsh seva medal associated to it will also have a completion/commendation certificate from head of mission and force commander.

  10. This is British Indian blood donor badge
  11. His General Service medal would be with clasp Jammu and Kashmir 1947 missed out mentioning that
  12. I will try to figure out the ribbon bar, since it's a black and white picture that makes it little difficult guess. Top left to right - 1. General Service medals 2. Paschimi Star 3.

  13. @peter monahan this is Burmese equivalent to title badge, the difference is this is made out of gold and title badges were struck in silver Yes Mike it seems it's referring to it's content. There were 3 categories if this medal, however I have never seen other two
  14. Named to Lt. Col O.P. Dutta of Arty, there is a progression in rank from captain to Lt. Col
  15. Not sure if this Burmese award is included in forum Sadly this is a unnamed medal Google search says "A large (51mm) gold medal awarded during the colonial period. The Burmese on reverse reads: Ahmu-dan-gaung Tazeik-ya Min (An official who has been awarded the medal for good service) and entitled to use the letters ATM after his name. The two other levels of the order were: Kyet thaye zaung Salweya Min (An official who has been awarded the Sash of Glory) and used the letters KSM after name; Thuye gaung ngwe Daya Min (An official who has been awarded the Silver Sword for Heroism) and
  16. Here is a territorial army medal group, which lives with me A territorial army decoration group
  17. For sure Peter, Yes you are spot on, I am based in India, with my primary collection theme as post 1947 Indian Army, state and police medals. It's always a pleasure to help fellow collectors as I have been helped by many time and again, if I can be a help to anyone it will be nice
  18. Hi Brian, You are a respected & learned senior collector and you surely know more people in the hobby then we newbies would know. We would for sure need your guidance and help Regards Amit
  19. Woah too many posts, didn't even realized I logged in after good 5 years Sahi, it's a nice thought however getting hold of a unnamed videsh Seva Medal will be difficult as maximum number of times they are awarded via regiments and many a times quarter masters are in charge of naming them, since you are serving in armed forces you may find one of you have good connects. Raksha Medal medal is tricky, let me see if I have any in spare I do remember picking a lot of 20 from Chennai based dealer.
  20. HI Ehjaz we are waiting for the scan, I have contacted a source in pakistan but he is not aware of existence of any such clasp.
  21. I recently came across an Air Crew Europe Star at ebay which is named to Corporal G. Wilson of the Royal Canadian Air Force. it looks pretty ok to me however I am kind of confused with the details on the medal as naming looks ok to me (Boots naming?) but its inscription says he was born on the 5.2.1921 and died on the 14.11.1943. Although I primarily collect Indian post 1947 medals this one caught my attention I have placed my bid but not too sure if it’s genuine or not but it is worth a try. Any opinions on this star?
