Victory Medal Research / Websites


Recommended Posts

It was recommended by Bill that we try building a thread with links to other websites with information about WWI Vics.

Bill: "Talking of links - is there any mileage in having a thread with links to other web sites with information about the WW1 vics?

There is a French site - http://www.medailles...ies-medail.html - with sections for all the Allies.

I expect most people here have favourite web sites like this - if there was a dedicated thread we could post the links. It would not need any chat, just the name and link, and a note of whether it's vics in general or for one country."

I'll also comb through the Websites and Book Forums eventually to extract anything of value that may have landed there...

So, thanks to Bill for the first entry; if you have any favorite sites for research regarding Vics, post them here... I'm also going to pin this to hopefully grab more attention.

Hi Gents,

There are several Italian sites that deal with the vics in general as well as their own:

http://www.faleristica.it/collezione.php?id=5

A general page on the vics - if you click on the photos on the right-hand side another pane opens.

http://miles.forumcommunity.net/?t=9288433

A forum dealing with all the vics ...

http://miles.forumcommunity.net/?t=49110969

... and a thread about Italian vics.

http://www.iagiforum.info/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=4767

Another forum dealing with all the vics.

I use Google Translate to get them into my language of choice.

Hi Gents,

The US MIlitaria Forum has a section of archived threads before 2009 about the US vic - http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?showforum=723

Also, if you go to the home page - http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/ and in the search box at top right input 'ww1 victory medals', the search will bring up all relevant threads.

To all:

my book the "World War I Victory Medals" will be selling on Amazon U.S. and U.K . Release date will be July 16, 2014. I packed it with many enlarged photos, so without question collectors will be able to tell an official clasp from an unofficial one.

Regards to all, Jim

To all,

The addition of any reference material, including updated illustrated books, are a welcome addition to the collecting fraternity.

I am sure there will be many on this forum that will benefit from such a reference.

Regards,
Rob

Customer Reviews

I recommend this book to those who want to start collecting the Victory Medal of the countries involved in the Great War. This is a book to have experienced collectors. Each chapter are specifications on the original and restrike and reproduction medals, the section on Victory Medal USA has a wonderful section that details all medals and reissues and closing corresponding to battle fought campaign. The author shows direct, information acquired during many years of research manner. CONGRATULATIONS! Receives my highest recommendations.

Can someone describe what updates there are in the 2016 version of johnnymac's book?  I'm considering trying to find one, but don't want to drop $60 on it if it's only updates on the American clasps, as I have not taken to collecting those.

Good evening Gentlemen,

A new web site dealing with the Victory Medals of all the Allied and Associated Nations has just come on-line:  https://www.medaillesinteralliees.fr/

The author is Jean-Michel, who posts on this section of the Forum, and he invites comments, corrections and additions from collectors.

I hope you enjoy the web site,

Bill

    • 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.
