  1. Different versions of the Liberation medal.
  2. Thank you Giorgos for adding your images and providing some very useful information. Dave
  3. I recently saw this 1939-1945 Overseas Service medal with an attached brooch made by Spink & Son. I can not guarantee it's authenticity but believe Spink & Son did make medals for Bahawalpur so it could be original. I am sure someone will put me right if I am mistaken.
  4. Hi Gents I have recently acquired the attached FFI badges which have been numbered. Does anyone happen to know if you can find the name of the recipients of either please ? I ask because I received the medals in the picture with the one badge, and would like to know if they belonged to the same Veteran, it being very possible that he served in WW1 and then became part of the Resistance in WW2. Thanks in anticipation Dave
  5. Many thanks Graham.
  6. 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.
  7. Here is the first version with a gilt star award.
  8. HI Guys Could someone give me an idea of which version/manufacturer of the medal this is please. Cheers Dave
  9. Thanks. I was hoping it was in rough shape because it was early version.
  10. 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
  11. Cheers Gunner, I thought I had seen a gilt version previously.
  12. Hi Guys Any information you can provide on this one please?
  13. It is not for sale but this one looks to be more bronze/brass than silver and is quite heavy.
