  1. Looks lovely and of good quality if that is:a fake then I am pope Boniface XXXVII. Paul
  2. Military postal service it is indeed a post horn. Paul
  3. Looks 3/2 to me. European c. 1910 value give or take 1000 bucks P
  4. Very nice however no sign of a hallmark which a lesser George should possess. If gilt metal then probably theatrical. P
  5. Nice to see you are alive and kicking Nick. I am at last free from over 2 years of veterinary incarnation alias St Thomas hospital free therefore to annoy and pester people. Pavel Nikoliaev
  6. It is possible as an engraved medal some one has bogged the spelling up. As any skirt wearer knows the name can be spelt in 2 equally common ways Stuart and Stewart. Could be the engraver had had a few Old Poultneys and got the wrong spelling check Stewart Paul
  7. Looks more like a lapel badge to me but I would agree with musician but not sure whether civil or military. Paul
  8. I suspect the answer will find itself.....eventually Paul
  9. Emmanuel, I remember Stella very well (and I am not talking of the Artois branch of the family). The attribution he gave is not unreasonable. I think it is a geographical society award but without portuguese governmental authority. But Portugal is awash with various private awards. Paul
  10. Does the South African Mint Manufacture them? If so it might be worth contacting them. P By the way congratulations with the rugby you showed real hunger and resolve, a group of paraplegic warthogs could have put in a better and more impassioned performance than the England XV Paul
  11. Well i hope the book is of some substance as a lot of these local police histories are little better than small museum guidebooks which usually provide little new knowledge P
  12. If we say rote adler then the blue would have to be krone a common combination in the lower classes
  13. Somewhat better value than the last. Although i could get a bottle of gin with the book and the postage which I supect would provide me with greater pleasure. Paul
  14. What a shame merchanr groups can sometime entail 50+ years service from early teens to sometimes late 60s early 70s, ships cooks were noted for their longevity (unlike those who patook of their food) when they became unfit for further service Do you have details of the other medals. I am in hospital at present but I may have access to the book in the next couple of months. Paul
