    I am primarily a collector of all things Third Reich but I do have other things too. These include a cased example of the Military Cross (George V). Now my question - - - it is plain on the reverse but I always thought it should carry the year it was awarded. Can anyone please offer any comment ??

    Thank you.

    As I recall (being at work away from sources) dating commenced something like 1938. No George V MC would have been dated. Official naming, of course, only dates from the recent reorganisation and extension of the MC to all ranks.

    Thank you Chris - - - I agree - a beautiful decoration - - I have several more but these all carry dates, for example 1942 and 1945, on the revese hence my question.

    By the way my favourite Britsh decoration of all is the DSO - - sadly I just have the one example.

    Thank you again.
