  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Here is one that I have with the small enamel damage (available for a sale).
  5. 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?

  7. are you selling or is it up on some auction site?
  8. Why there isn't BWM and VM ribbon? Last ribbon is Canada General Service or Italian Order of the Crown? Anyway, next to the 1914 or 1914-15 Star ribbon there should be British War medal ribbon and Victory medal ribbon and not this one.
  9. Edmund Culshaw (28-May-1895 - 1970) From Lancashire, Atherton, 202a Elliott Street, Tyldesley. 1911 Census shows living with his parents, occupation butcher. Enlisted 9th March 1914. Discharged 10th April 1917. Served first in the 1/5th Battalion, Manchester regiment. Wounded in Gallipoli. Listed in 06 September 1915 - Manchester Evening News (I am missing FMP access at the moment but his number and name comes up). So, wounded probably around 2-3 weeks before the publication. He had a second service number as well - 200297. Died in Liverpool 1970. 1/5th Battalion August 1914 : in Bank Chambers, Wigan. Part of Manchester Brigade, East Lancashire Division. Moved to near Rochdale. 25 September 1914 : landed at Alexandria in Egypt. 6 May 1915 : landed on Gallipoli. 26 May 1915 : formation became 127th Brigade, 42nd (East Lancashire) Division. 28 December 1915 : evacuated from Gallipoli, landed on Mudros and proceeded to Egypt. 2March 1917 : landed Marseilles and proceeded to the Western Front. and also picture of his parents...
  10. Staff Nurse Miss M. Evans.Supplement to the London Gazette, 3 June, 1916, page 5601. (May's award appe ars to be for service at the King George V Hospital in Dublin.) I am confident that her Red Cross award was related to her service in Dublin during the Easter Rising.
  11. Its just zoomed in part of the roll to read better. It says "neither in possession of 1882 or 1884 medal. Underneath you can see he had 1882 issue... There is actually his family tree up on Ancestry with more details. Also 1891 census lists him as living in the hussars barracks... he may had some type of job there after the years with the colours.
  12. Hi all, I just recently purchased these and I am wondering is it possible to determine when these were in use? In respect of material and how they are made, I am thinking that post ww2, perhaps 50-60s? Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Noor
