just purchased a ww1 pair comprising of bwm and victory medal. both are engraved to the edge LIEUT.F.W. FIDGEON....but there is no service number or regiment...I also have a life members pass dated 1906 to the National Rifle Association named to Fredrick W . Fidgeon Esq.

Any advice on why there is no service number or regiment will be gratefully recieved.. I must also add that these came from a house clearance.

Will post some photo's tommorow..

I just picked up a pair also to a Lieut. and like yours and others they have no number or regimental notation.

Not to worry, if indeed you are, as this is correct.

Looking forward to seeing them.

    • 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.
