  1. Hiya, Found this on Wikipedia: Order of post-nominals in the United States See also: List of professional designations in the United States In the United States, standard protocol is to list post-nominal letters in the following order:[20] Religious institutions Theological degrees Military decorations Academic degrees Honorary degrees, honors, decorations Professional licenses, certifications and affiliations Retired uniformed service. Active duty services personnel do not use any post-nominals other than, if applicable, Staff Corps affiliation (Navy only) followed by a comma and then their branch of service. Names are bracketed by the appropriate pre-nominal and post-nominal, e.g. LCDR John Q Public, MC, USN.[20]
  2. Hiya, I found this medal being offered on BidorBuy. 1999 - 2002 Boer War Centenary Queen South Africa Medal With Magersfontein Bar. Who can tell me more, thanks for any information. Marcon1.
  3. Afterthought - could it be a edelweiss ?? Maybe from the 1st. world war - I'm sure the German collectors can tell if my thought is correct or wrong. Marcon1.
  4. SAP Cross for Bravery: Gold (PCFG) (1989-2004) Awarded for outstanding bravery in extreme danger. First awarded (1991) to Maj André du Toit, for twice single-handedly disposing of bombs, and for bravery while leading a raid on an armed fugitive's hideout. Insignia: Same design as the 1963 PCF, but smaller and with a narrower ribbon, and worn on the chest. 18ct. Gold. (1989 - 2004) 9ct. Gold. (1989 - 2004) No 'gold' marking Who cares about a carat more (or less) 😉 Marcon1.

  6. As the Australian police Force is based on the English one I would expect that they have the same ranks. But you can always try a 'google' to see if there is a difference. As to how they are issued - if they follow the English way it should be like this. Regards, Marcon1.
  7. Hiya, According to The Medal Yearbook the medal was also extended in 1956 to police officers serving in Australia, Papua New Guinea and Nauru. Australia replaced this medal in 1976 with the (Australian) National Medal. As English Police LSGC Medals are named, it is most likely this was also done with the Australian issues. Kind regards, Marcon1.
  8. Hiya, It has taken a few months but I finally found out what it is. Are you ready for this - it's a pin belonging to the girl guides 😁 So nothing to do with WW II and German fighter pilots. It just shows, always be weary with unknown items.
  9. Hiya, although this is not my area of knowledge I do know that this medal was issued before 1917 (tsarist era) and again since 1992 (Russian Federation). Could this be a modern (1992) issue ???
  10. Try UDF CAMP CULLINAN in Google images. You will see pictures etc. from The South African Military History Society Military History Journal Vol 14 No 1 - June 2007 MEMORIES OF WAR... Premier Mine and the village of Cullinan
  11. Doubtful, they would have skimmed the medal and named it again and this time the right way. Don't forget, the medal is made of silver.
