  1. Thank You Marcon....... I know where the Williams medal is located and Langford is in my collection, I missed bidding on the White medal..... Oh yes the picture that is with Williams is not Williams ..... Mike
  2. Good Evening Everyone...…. As everyone knows that the Princess of Wales and later Queen Alexandra was very interested in the British Soldier and Sailor especially the wounded..... I have heard of rumors that she also commissioned a Chocolate box in the same theme of the Victorian box but the war ended before Christmas..... These boxes had been started to be manufactured with some of the boxes completed but not filled..... A halt was put on the manufacture and the boxes that were made were filled and saved, I understand that later they were distributed to the soldiers that were sti
  3. Good Morning Everyone...... It;s been 10 years since anything has been added to this thread so I thought I would add some more...... I have just obtained a group of medals that consist of: Commander of the Order of the British Empire, Queen's South Africa Medal, World War One War Medal and Interallied Victory Medal with Mentioned in Despatches....... I have been contacted by the seller with information that they have found some papers and two more pieces of ribbon but no medals that as per the description are a French Legion of Honour and Egyptian Order of the Nile.....
  4. Hi Alex...... No I don't think for any of the major colonies as they had their own mints but still most of the medals were made for them were made in England..... Right now the Royal Canadian Mint has contracts with and makes items (coins, medals and medallions) for 74 different countries including the United States and China..... Another thing that is against it from being an official issue is even though there is a Crown on it there is no Royal Cypher or Figure...... Mike
  5. This badge looks OK to me..... Suggest that you find (possibly on ebay) a copy of Kipling and King, both volumes you will find it there..... There is also: https://www.britishbadgeforum.com/ I have one that looks very similar so if yours is a dud then mine is as well. I have a number of Canadian badges marked sterling and sterling silver which I understand were made by a man who used to sell on ebay under the name Badgeman and is now in goal for fraud...... Mike
  6. Sorry but have never seen one of these before..... Do not think it is official being made by a private company and not the Royal Mint..... Could be a school or academy award medal of some type..... Mike
  7. Sorry thought it would show up one of the problems with this forum...... Type in YEATES in search and go to bottom of page.... Mike
  8. If you are interested in NZ forces I suggest you take a look at this...... An Original Whistle Blower...... Mike Home Great Britain & Commonwealth Realms Great Britain: Orders, Gallantry, Campaign Medals An Original Whistle Blower......
