  1. apparently there was NO independence medal issued. A preliminary medal design was instead used to reward soldiers who fought the border insurgents around the time of independence
  2. is there a nominal roll for its issue ?
  3. does anyone have a photo of the original Kenya Independence medal, from 1963. Anyone know where I can get one ?

  7. Hi All I am a retired Pharmacist and Chemist in Sydney, and have just joined the GMIC, but have been a member of the British Medal Forum for many years. I am a member of the OMRS and the OMSA, and collect "interesting" British and Australian medal groups. Anything from mid 1800's to ww2 I like multiple campaign groups and interesting combinations, such as with a foreign award, coronation/jubilee, long service etc. At the moment there are 2 items that I am looking for : - ribbon for the King Haakon VII coronation medal of 1906 - to go with a British R.N. group

Irish Fusiliers - 14/14 star trio to cpl/sgt A. Buckler - R. Ir. Fus. - Karageorge star 2nd class, silver - as awarded to NCO's This is the one without the white enamel of the order, and with a silver cross and gold/gilt ray
