I hate to say it but with so little to go off of it will be next to impossible. Can you take a loop to the edge and see if anything else is revealed? My dad has an extremely powerful digital microscope that he uses in coin inspections. If all else fails you can send it to me and i can give it a whirl on that beastie.

Cheers

Chris

When medals are mounted as a brooch or, as a neck pendant, it is a tragedy for the collector. However, the chances are that either he gave it to his wife as a gift - being his most important possession or, he was KIA and she had it mounted. I don't think it could ever be restored fully, so, keep it for what it is - a tribute to a brave man. Whilst it has some polishing it is crisp - but, look under the pin mount and there is a lot of wear. This is where it has rubbed - over the years - on her dress.

I hope someone can help with his identity - do let us know ?

    • 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.
