  1. Out of the horrors of war a bud of something beautiful blossoms.......going by the picture on the link he was awarded the bronze land service and is only one of 290 recipients .....
  2. I have also noticed a few OP-Telic Iraq Medals appear on ebay via various cash brokers pawn brokers franchises over the last few weeks...One assumes the recipient or relative of recipient has hit on hard times and pawned it...Having said that I have met a few ex service men who sold their medals on because of the way they felt they had been neglected after leaving the forces..
  3. Hi, I am looking to purchase some ww1 medals and have been informed that the regiment is engraved as W.R.F.D.R. I have gone through my list of abbreviations and the only thing I can think is that its the west riding regiment and the seller has got the I mixed up for an F....or is it a correct abbreviation for a regiment..thank you in advance chris
  4. And here are the two ww2 miniatures with the same residue from mounting as the ww1 trio......And all six medals for just £15!!! can't even buy the nasty modern staybright ones for that :cheeky:
  5. Also included in the £15 lot was miniature cadet force medal 1953-1980
  6. Miniatures purchased today from a car boot sale for £15 ....The 1914 trio appear to have been mounted together at some time but have been separated ..there is also a ww2 defence and war medal with the same residue from the mounting (see top of ribbon to victory medal) so it seems it was mounted as a group of 5.
  7. My favourite so far..lovely mini ww1 BWM with swivel suspender.....a little glue residue and blue thread on ribbon so has been mounted at some stage
  8. nice mini mercantile medal..has glue residue on ribbon
  9. ww1 miniature pair ..the BWM has fixed suspender
  10. Hi, a nice couple of groups there guys the miniatures I'm buying are only british...I have been across the minefield of third reich collecting and I'm not going back!!! The cost factor is part of my reason plus I am limited for display space...And I think some of the bigger groups are attributable so an interesting form of research as well..I will post pics this evening of the couple I have....chris
  11. I have started buying miniatures and while I have not yet got any decent groups , (just acouple of pairs and single ones). I was wondering if this would be the correct place on GMIC to post pics and info about any I may get, if not please direct me to the correct place....I have been buying and selling anything and everything for 20 years and I collect militaria and then sell my collection and start on something new...I recently sold my last collection and have started buying miniatures and full size medals...
  12. Thank you for that info..I found earlier entries relating to him transfering from the Warwickshire regiment to the Bedford regiment....
  13. Couldnt find mention of the Machine Gun Corps
