  1. Looks like she died 21 January 2005 at the age of 92. But nothing else found yet about her service, etc.
  2. Hi all, I randomly picked up a single Australia Service Medal 1939-1945 that was issued to "106640 IDA SMITH RAAF". I checked recordsearch.gov.ua website and I can see that: Ida May Smith was born 12 July 1912 in Wallsend NSW. She enlisted in Sydney 5 October 1942. Next of Kin Albert Smith. Dicharge 8 June 1945 (rank Corporal). I am wondering is there more information possible to find about her and her service. Also, in case she didn't serve overseas, was this medal her only entitlement? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  3. Commissioned 1915 https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/29330/supplement/10240/data.pdf 1940 WW2 service (APC) https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/34888/supplement/4087 His MIC confirms MBE and I did quick scan of new years honours lists but wasn't able to locate him. I will have a second look soon.
  4. Thanks again guys! No plan to keep it so who would be interested to buy, please let me know via private message. Thanks!
  5. Hi all, I just spotted this frack spange on sale and I am was just wondering is there enough clues to put the name behind this medal bar as well? Thanks, Noor
  6. Hi gents, Here is one that I just picked up today. A really nice little piece of jewellery!
  7. Looks like it is part of an (orchestrate ) uniform (cloak badge - what could be a better translation?) https://starina.ru/item/85465934_Пряжка_Застежка_плаща_чиновника_служащего_министерства_Императорская_Россия_Пересыл_бесплатно
  8. Thanks Paul! For comparison, I added an excellent shooter badge next to it. Looks big enough to be a regular badge instead of lapel? Obviously it could be a civilian as well but I never came across anything like this in the antiques, forums or internet. the badge in question came out from Estonia, so perhaps related to the local musical events/movements? Thanks for your thoughts!
  9. Thank you so much guys for your comments! Lots of possibilities I assume. interesting combination that I like!
  10. Hi all, Could you please help me to ID a badge on the below picture please. It is definitely Imperial Russian era and I think it is a military related (bandsman?) badge but I wasn't able to find any similar ones using Google Search. Also does it missing its enamel? Thanking you in advance!
  11. But in this case it should be on the second position, before the foreign award?
  12. Hi all, Today I received this nice ribbon bar and I would like to check with others in regards of the two ribbons. Construction I am familiar with - I have seen same systems before (WW1 era). Underneath the ribbons there is as well green khaki material (can be seen on the edges). Now awards: - Queen South Africa medal (must be awarded with the SA01/SA02 clasp(s) because lack of KSA ribbon) - Could this be Danish Order of the Danneborg? I assume many other awards could fit there actually. I am guessing just most common ones - Serbian Red Cross Decoration? Any other ideas? Also have some of you seen similar combinations before? thanks, Timo
  13. Hi all, I am seeking any extra information and also if there is available a photo of Malcolm Gordon John McHaffie, Royal Engineers. During the WW1 he served from July 1916 in the 167 A.T.Coy Royal Engineers and ended the war as a Major. He appears in the Army lists as well in 30s. I assume as a territorial officer. Therefore, is it possible to confirm as well did he received a Territorial Decoration? Like I understand, he do not appear any Coronation or Jubilee medal rolls. During the WW2 he started his service again as a major in T.A. (Territorial Army). 1944 he became a Lieutenant Colonel.1952 Army List shows him as a Colonel. Not sure did he became entitle to Defence medal (and War medal as well). His obituary has good overview of him as a engineer. Also it shows that he received a French Croix de Chevalier du Merite Maritime in 1953. any help and advise how to research him any further would be greatly appreciated!
  14. Hello all, I am just wondering is there any lists available to confirm a Croix de Chevalier du Merite Maritime award that was issued to Englishman in 1953? Man in question is Malcolm Gordon John McHaffie. Unfortunately I am not able to locate this on London Gazette.
