  1. Can anyone assist in supplying photos of whats missing as ever thanks, Paul
  2. Tony, I agree as a part-time antiques dealer it is the equalivant of a 17 century copy of a 16 century piece, not right but not a 20 century copy, I like it (thats what maters) and its stunning to look at, thanks, Paul
  3. If ever our hobby becomes a question of "what's it worth" and not the honour and sacrifice these men and women gave, then we are not worthy, albeit the frozen wastes of Russia or the heat of the desert or in Lucian's case a cold morning on the 27th of December 1916 all alone not knowing if his work was of value or if anyone cared, this medal group of brass and tin truly is what we try to preserve in our hobby and the honour of little Belgium, France and the free world.
