Gentlemen please check your screwplates!


Recommended Posts

Thanks. Good to know. But there is such haphazard swapping of screwplates back-and-forth (I have watched this being done :banger: ) that we may no longer be able to disentangle any meaning to these exotic screwplates.

Clearly SOMETHING is going on, but as with so many "Things Mongolian" . . . . What Is It???

Found another one like this in my collection. I have the impression all these screwplates have in common that there's a "solder" like blob around the center... almost as if the screw plate needed to be rethreaded for the polar star and adding this extra metal on top enabled it?

I also am also lucky to have one of these screwplates, but it came with a Type 1 Order of Combat Valor, #539.  Unfortunately, it is in a safe deposit box right now so I can’t share an image. It is most likely a swapped screwplate.

cheers,

Will

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
