I see nothing wrong with the star or BWM either. As for reuniting the missing VM and IGS 1908, I have all but given up in regards to possible reunites. I have steered well clear of broken groups, unless of course they are named to a member of the Irish Regiment of Canada.

My track record in 30 plus years of collecting is 1 reunite (QSA/KSA pair) and a partial reunite to Rycroft,DCM MM, of the CFA. I had his 14-15 Star for 20 plus years, found his DCM last year. No sign of the MM, BWM or VM.

Re-uniting groups is disheartening work! I've seen it happen, by chance mostly, and once when the medals had just been sold to several dealers [who should have known better] within a single city, but very very rare. Love it for what it is!

Reunites do happen! In 4 years of collecting British medals iv got 3, one for a family whose meritorious service medal went missing in the 30s a victory medal to ramc captain that took me 2 and a half years of mailing the person who had the vic medal and just recently a south African merit service star to a south African police detective major so the best bet is keep looking as it probably will turn up in the end! Nice set though!

Yes I did. I have his service record and MIC (You can see the first page in the photo of the Star and BWM)

That's how I knew about the IGS '08 medal.

    • 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.
