  1. Finally in 2007 DEFRA(Dept for Environment,Food & Rural Affairs) made an award available to veteran women who had served in the WLA & WTC. The badge was issued on 6 December 2007 and claimants needed to alive at this date to be entitled to claim it though!! They were accompanied by a certificate of thanks on behalf of the nation, signed by the Prime Minister.
  2. Here is the first version with a gilt star award.
  3. HI Guys Could someone give me an idea of which version/manufacturer of the medal this is please. Cheers Dave
  4. Thanks. I was hoping it was in rough shape because it was early version.
  5. Hi Guys I have just acquired the following badge. Can anyone give me an idea of the age/ details etc., please. Most of the ones I can find are made by IKOM. Cheers Dave
  6. Cheers Gunner, I thought I had seen a gilt version previously.
  7. Hi Guys Any information you can provide on this one please?
  8. It is not for sale but this one looks to be more bronze/brass than silver and is quite heavy.
  9. No problem Nick, there is more than one variation of this medal, so they could both be authentic or alternatively both be fakes. We will probably never know for sure Lots of information discussing these, but unless you can get one with an authentic document from a trusted source it is a lottery.
  10. Maybe?, these are a nightmare to authenticate, lots of debate all over the internet. Here is the one I have settled for, before I attached a new ribbon, but no guarantee this is right either I am afraid.
  11. Missing the hammer & sickle on the star at the bottom on the obverse?
  12. I seem to remember purchasing a Polish medal from them some time ago. I don't remember having any problem with them.
  13. I am most dubious of No.2 The Philippine Independence medal as it has a Luzon ribbon attached to it and although it may not be too easily recognisable from the images the Rs in JR at the end of J J TUPAZ JR appear to be Ps. It is also the only version I have where both the obverse and reverse have makers markings. However it is still a very nice quality medal.
  14. 7-Philippine-Defense Medal 8-Philippine-Liberation Medal
