A DCM, MM and 2 bar combination I cannot pin down !

Recommended Posts

iv been looking at the bar for a while and if its real it should be VERY easy to get an ID off it BUT i suspect its put together!! first off the 2 bars to the MM the DCM the MSM the Kings Police Medal the MID and the 2 foreign awards means there should only be a few if not 1 person who should have this combination of medals also as all these would have to have been Gazetted in the London Gazette means once you have a name you can check them all on there as they would have been announced there!also with the 1 on the African star it as a "1" usually means the person was in the 1st army in north Africa!the other thing is this person is going to have been in the army from at least 1935 (the IGS ribbon and medal was changed in 36) till at least 1962/4 as the ribbon with the MID on it was introduced then but yet theres no coronation or jubilee medals! not impossible but id be suspicious so once you an get the names of anyone who in ww2 won the dcm mm and or bar(the rosettes might have been added later) then it should be very simple to tick off the various ribbons on the bar! though to me i suspect it a put together bar as the people who did win the dcm mm and bars dont fit this bar!

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
