  1. Thank you for the information! Best to all! Vince
  2. Happy 2020 to all! Can you please assist me identify these 2 medals. I believe they may be from Africa but can't locate anything on them. Many thanks, Vince
  3. Yes, It's the actual circular part that holds the answer. The Rhodesian is all polished with no stippled center. I think the Australians use this style but do the British?
  4. Greetings to all, My question is what country used this style of buckle? British, Australian? Happy Holidays, Vince
  5. Hello All, I hope this short note finds everyone in good health and spirits. I am trying to find some ribbons for several South African medals I have. I would appreciate any help or guidance in acquiring them. Neither the OMRS or OMSA ribbon banks have them. Happy Holidays, Vince
  6. Just found the exact same vest but solid green in color on BoB current bid is R6000!
  7. Just curious, Has anyone ever seen a vest like this before? Thanks, Vince
  8. Hello & thank you! I just purchased that book and found that same reference last night! I have seen some photos with it applied during the war but very few. Thanks again!
  9. I was thinking about it and the only thing I can come up with is that this is a pouch to hold 4- M-127A1 Parachute Signal/Illumination Flares. Anyone else???
  10. I brought this home from Afghanistan with a lot of other Aussie field gear I traded for but do not remember what it was used for? Any Aussie field gear experts out there? Each of the 4 pouches measures closed flap - 13" x 2.5" x 2.5" and each pocket is 7" deep, its not for AR or AUG mags! Any help appreciated. Cheers
  11. Greetings Gentlemen, Does anyone know when the USMC started stenciling the EGA on their helmet covers? Was this done in WW2 or later. Attached is a photo of my Father's issued USMC helmet cover. He served 1957-60. Thank you for any info & Semper Fi! Vince
  12. Thanks for the input. Can anyone post an order of precedence chart for Japanese medals? Thank you!
  13. Not the answer I was looking for. Just a medal precedence question. Thanks!
