  3. well this is an interesting topic I would think it should extend to anyone who has of is required to work through this if they are providing a service away from a isolated place such as their homes. Top of the list for certain should be health workers then others to follow. there are different sectors of the now limited work force that still need to front up while others don't. There will be people such as the emergency services, utility workers, food production chefs and delivery staff, supply chain teams etc. who may not be as front line as health workers but in their own way provide a important service and will also have an increased risk of catching the virus. Maybe the medal could have a similar ribbon, 1 for direct front line workers, and 1 for support / not front line as would be good to acknowledge those who but others needs a head of their own
  4. Hello Andrej thanks for that much appreciated regards C
  5. Hi just wanted to see if anyone could translate the attached document and what it was issued for regards and thanks in advance C
  6. Hi Peter regards to the double long service group they seem similarly numbered but don't think they are tailors copies as the naming is same style as the other medals in the group and other Indian medals. yes agree the quality of the metal used is not great. I looked at trying to research the medals when I was in India a year or so ago, but no one seemed to helpful regards C
  7. Hi All just wanted to share a few of my Indian groups I have rediscovered after starting to sort out my collection The are as follows: Group 1. Singh. D L / Hvr 4445497 Sikh Light Infantry Group 2 (Issued 2 x 9 year long service medals) Ditta. B Sepoy 13820835 Army Service Corps Group 3 Singh. H. Sub / Clk JC/14071 Dogra Regiment Group 4 Singh. S Sepoy 4452310 Sikh Light Infantry regards C
  8. yes I also agree the group is made up the numbering is different both in ink as well hand writing. Also the OGIII would have been awarded between late December 1944 and February 1945 so that also would make the dates on the award booklet suspect C
  9. hello I am looking for help on some South Africa abbreviations for WW II If any on can help with the following: N.M.C G.S.C. A.C.F N.M.M.T "Q" S.C. Regards and thanks C
  10. with the OGIII that was part of a block of 500 OGIII (415,701- 416,200) on the 16.06.1945, and was issued to Captain Yablonsky. L.M. - Leningradsky Front This OG III was issued from the mint on the 12.06.1945 as part of a 10,00 OG III block (405,901 - 415,900) hope that is of some help regards C
  11. I started to collect when I was a young boy when I was shown army cap badges from my grandfather who served in the second world war in the home guard. I brought a few cap badges from markets and shops, but then just went away from it as had too many other distractions as a lad. My other grandfather served in the Gordon's in the great war and I loved and was proud when seeing him wearing his medals, as well my father served in the RAF during the second world war, I have also served so that's maybe where it started I then started to revisit collecting again about 12 years ago when I came across a Soviet Order of Glory III at a flea market in Bristol, paid £30 for a early issue award. I then found you could research the award and I was hooked. I collected Soviet awards mostly OG III and groups and grew my collection to close to a 1000 awards many with documents and have had about 40% researched. Then as a result of work I found myself working in different location globally and found markets that allowed me to further expand and add to my collection and then over the last 5 years I have looked more towards WW1 medals which now includes over a 100 + trios, then this flowed onto interwar then WW2 medals, mostly groups. I then thought would be great to have a cap badge for each regiment I had in my collection. before I knew it my collection had expanded to a massive array of items. I have now downsized my collection and have learned that it is better to look at a smaller area of interest so now my collection is based around WW1 Medals to British units, Canadian, New Zealand and South African units; WW2 groups with LSGC, GSM, TEM medals attached, Soviet OGIII and groups, and cap badges. Even though the collection has been largely reduced I still find myself with close to 2000 medals which is still growing. I have through collecting managed to acquire several medals of men who belonged not just to my grandfathers regiment, but the company he served in which gives a feeling of association Yes I agree with many that collecting is addictive and sometimes hard to retrain one's self. I love to collect as it gives me great enjoyment and allows me to be a custodian of history, and I have through researching found some amazing stories and association of the medals recipients to which often puts many things into prospective. In summary i think we all collect for different reasons and that reason is personal. C
  12. just wanted to add some further medals that I have just finished mounting there are a variety of units covering Lancers, Hussars, Yeomanry, N.Z.E.F., Coldstream and Grenadier Guards, infantry and corps regards C
  13. Just located his MIC, he has two which sometimes happens Also has service records on line and suffered a GSW to chest and shoulder 13th April 1915 please find attached C
