Some years ago an old patient of mine- Im a doctor - show me your collection. He had the Brazilian medal for the WW1 who belong to his grandpa. But you father decided years ago to cut the holder so the medal can fit in a coin's collector book. Ok, no big deal.  When he died, her wife decided to present me with the medal, but she decided - for my despair!! - to polish it and put a new holder after she pierced a new hole on it (!!!!). She said "the medal is now a decent present to you, not that piece of trash my husband had". 

Ok, now I have this medal, but I like it a lot, as it have all this histories behind.

Graham,

 

Without close-ups of the obverse/reverse it is difficult to tell from the posted pics.

 

Give-away points are the J.S. marking on the obverse and the diacritic markings on the reverse. The images posted by Lambert on 13 November 2013 has a couple of well-lit pictures which can help with identifying the close-up details required.

 

Having seen one or two of these items close-up it looks okay but you would really want to obtain some close-up pics before making any decision.

 

Regards from Australia,
Rob

    • George Macdonald Fraser describes tea as "The British Army's cure for anything except a stomach wound."   Partial to Earl Grey, meself.  Used to be a tea drinker until Law School, where we had no cafeteria, only vending machines.  Awful as vending machine coffee is, their tea is worse.   Michael
    • Now it looks like I may see my exhibition for the first time in 19 months.   This year is the 65th Anniversary of the Suez Crisis, which culminated in Lester B. Pearson's invention of Peacekeeping, as opposed to Military Observers.   So the Museum will record a video of me discussing this.
    • I've never been able to stick to one theme.   One of my latest is women in the military.  For about ten years from 1952 to 1962, the RCAF actively recruited women to "man" the radar lines protecting against a Soviet attack.   During the Second War, women of the Auxiliary Territorial Service were attached to Royal Artillery Anti-Aircraft Batteries, called Mixed Batteries. They did spotting and tracking, plus communications, while the Gunners loaded and fired.  
    • Two years down the line.   My mother-in-law passed away this summer, as did one of her sisters-in-law.   My exhibition opened, and we had a marvellous speakers' night with four Peacekeeping veterans, including a Meritorious Service Medal winner.  But Covid closed it down in March 2020, and while still there it hasn't reopened.
    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
