  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. Hi all, Not an expert on this (mine)field so what you guys think is this Erkennungsmarke original period made? Also am I correct to say that the owner of this disk was a soldier in the signal branch of Infantry Regiment 305? Thanking you in advance, Noor
  4. Hi all, I am not an expert of this period items and especially when it comes to an insignia. Therefore an advice would be greatly appreciated in respect of originality of these items below. Thanking you in advance, Noor

  6. Hi all, I picked up thus cap badge along with some British Badges but looks to me it could be Greece badge instead? Could someone confirm please? Also how common/rare it is and what could be it's value (not my collecting interest so I will move it on) Thanks, Timo
  7. Staršina (NCO) Mikhail Klyuchnikov, Navy AA artillery. Served in very rare lake Ladoga flotilla! His unit shot down 5 enemy planes during the action, where he participated as well. Medal is with the scare small original ribbon plate. Unfortunately disk is missing but I reckon I still did well.
  8. Hi all, I just wanted to share few medals that I recently picked up during my holidays in Estonia. I also got the owners files via research services that one of our fellow forum member is organising. Now, I was hoping that at least one of the medal' s owner is Estonian but unfortunately not. Therefore I will move them on probably soon enough but still, the excitement of the research is great and therefore I would like to share results. First I got a nice bravery medal numbered 2286285. Viktor Kuzmin, marine. He fought at the most northern peak of the front - Musta-Tunturi, Kola peninsula in Artic Russia, where he fixed cutted telephone line under heavy enemy fire, also he was in the combat where he killed at least 3 germans and saved injured comrades.
  9. Here is one that I have with the small enamel damage (available for a sale).
  10. Hi all, I have here this medal below named to 1557 Sepoy XXX XXX 4th Sikhs and I am actually planning to move it on. Could someone please help me to read out his name? Also I assume these medals are un-researchable? Like I understand it was a small campaign only that took place between November 1901 until March 1902? I did some reading about the 4th Sikhs and only interesting fact that I noted was with the battle of Saragarhi where one of the fallen soldiers had one digit smaller service number 1556. So, probably owner of this medal was closely related to the soldiers who fought and died in this gallant last stand. Can this be the case?
