  2. Hi Guys, just a wee bit of info, the ERII badge on the first set signifies that the wearer was Equerry to the Queen. I have a Kings Crown set to a RNZAF Air commodore who was also an Equerry to Queen Elizabeth II, this pair i have are still attached to the Tropical Mess jacket he wore Cheers Paul
  3. Echoing Peter....DROOL! wish it were mine.... Nice find Chris! I thought they only practised removing the clasp "Ears" on the 1854 IGS....now i know different. Thanks for that. Cheers Paul
  4. An excellent collection of awards....and they are in NZ? thats wonderful! Thanks for sharing! Also for helping to re-unite medals to the original recipient...thats just super! KR Paul Aoteroa, Land of the long white cloud.

  7. Ed, Found a 1854 IGS the other day. Named to Sepoy Jeeba Singh Mily Police Bn Pyinmana With Burma 1887-89 Clasp IS this a rarity? And can you help with a approximate worth please? Kind regards Paul PS; just bought my latest 1854 IGS..to a 1015 Cpl C Stuart Royal Scots Fusiliers
  8. Thankyou Gents, I am pleased to complete the group in his Honour. Yes addictive indeed! Hows your addiction coming along Laurence?? Regards Paul
  9. Gents....Behold!!! the bar is assembled finally! Doesn't it look great! and a fitting tribute to a brave Sepoy who died fighting for his country in Burma. Also attached is his Memoriam from the Commonwealth War Graves site. Enjoy! Paul
  10. Nice to see you are on this particular slippery slope there Pat! LOL Ed, Sorry to be picky...but New Zealanders did not get their medals stamped with their names...a great pity that.. Australians, Indians, And south africans did so did the ( not 100% sure here) Rhodesians and Canadians. Darrell!, nice to see the full set...i need the ACE myself.... have 7 so far... Have the 1939-45, Burma, Africa( with 1st and 8th army bars),and the Italy Stars mounted in Groups all are attributed to South African, a NZer, and a British soldiers. Have a group to the Englishman, missing the North Africa 1942-3 bar Am hoping to get a Navy bar soon with a Pacific Star with Burma bar. Laurence, i see you are too on this slippery slope...i find it really Interesting being able to research the soldiers life from having his name on the medals. Cheers Gents, Paul
  11. Hello Ed, Superb wee groups! Thanks for showing us! Love the group to Sepoy Fazal Din....Wonderful! all Victorian! just magic! Also Love the Kabul to Khandahar pair! Am getting a pair with 3 bars to a Pte in the 92nd Highlanders soon! cannot wait! Cheers Paul
  12. Don, these are Very Very nice indeed! Thanks for the clarification as to why the points have the build up on them..makes perfect sense than fluff the expensive cloth and render the cloth all tatty. Thanks for showing! Kind regards Paul
  13. Gawd! these are positively Awfull! the mind boggles! How do they possibly think that they can get away with selling this tripe?? I mean those sort of bars ( Size wise) would command serious money, and those who spend this sort of money know what they are buying...and would not touch these with a 100 foot barge pole! Thanks for the laugh! Paul
  14. Claudio, that is a superb bar! Hope it did not break the bank... Sorry to hear of Georges death, he sounded like a good man, and a Knowledgeable collector. My condolences to his family. Regards Paul
  15. Ed! Super medals indeed! thanks for showing! Are all these medals yours? wow! you must have a super duper collection! just an aside...did you find anything on that Pir Baksh of the 5th Punjabi regiment??? The one that Sam Moss asked you about...its coming to reside in my collection...Yay! Thanks! cheers Paul
  16. This wee group has surfaced down here on our local Trademe site... Comprising of 4 medals to a Pakistani chap. here is some info from the seller... A good Pakistan group of 4 medals on an old court mounting. The medals are the Independence Medal (1947) (wrong ribbon), The Wiliadat-I-Quaid-I-Azim Medal (the founder of Pakistan -like a coronation medal) 1976, The Hijri Medal 1979, and another I have not identified yet. The first medal is impressed to 199 F C BAQIR KHAN (I assume it is Foot Constable or Frontier Constable) If anyone wants this group...i will be happy to help. Cheers Paul
  17. Nice Set Darrell! And even nicer long medalbar! I see he even got down here to our little port Lyttelton....!! here in the south Island of New Zealand... He certainly got around... Cheers Paul
  18. Well aint that amazing...another Kiwi born VC winner.... We breed em tough here! Nice to see all the medals together in this one....Dunno about the $750,000 price tag expected (Just seen it on the news!) Cheers Paul
  19. Michael, thankyou for the extract..very interesting reading.. Ed, thanks for looking up the info in the KIA records...Looking forward to hearing what you discover... So being a pakistani punjab, we can safely assume his entitlement for WWII would be un-named. I may just assemble his entitlement to honour this fallen soldier. I hope the Gents will think that doing this is ok Yes Michael, Ed has some lovely groups indeed! I just love the reseach ability of these named medals... Thanks again Michael and Ed for all your help! Regards Paul
  20. Thanks Michael, you are amazing! So My Sepoy was Fighting in India Ben Nevis?? is this a place or battle? He was killed in action 28/05/1944 where? How do you know where he served? like Burma etc... Would his other medals have been named?? or just this IGS? If i were to assemble his entitlement...where would the iGS sit? at the front or back of the bar? Great stuff! thats the 3rd casualty medal i have picked up in the last couple of weeks! and unknowingly too! i am pleased indeedly! Thankyou again for your invaluable help here Michael, a tip of the hat to you! Regards Paul
  21. Hi Michael, His number, well it was 9056 Is this him? the casualty?? How did you find out?? Regards Paul
  22. and a nice IGS from 1936 Named to a Sepoy ALLAH DAD 1-16 Punjabi R.
  23. and here we have a couple of Volunteer Long service medals One a Victorian and one an Edwardian the Edwardian medal is named to 2803 C.SJT:W.GARDENER 17/MIDDX:V.R.C It even still has the silver mounting brooch on it..so must have been a single entitlement. The Victorian one is mint but un-named.
  24. and this fine group! To a W.Farley WPMR the QSA/KSA are renamed...but its a nice group which was lovingly worn and polished. He served with the ASC in WW1 in France
