Good evening. Can someone show the reverse of named Burma Star to Australians. The font / method of application has always been standard(what kind of ?) or may be different.  Thanks.

Lots of examples of Aussie Burma Stars on-line, but so far I haven't found a reverese shot.  

The Indians used a small, all caps, system.  It's often described as 'engraved' but was in fact stamped/'impressed', if that is any help at all.  Noteable in the Indian case for uneven lines and some very imaginaive spellings and abbreviations, as those doing the work may have had an indifferent command of English.

Yes, it's clear with the Indian, but I can not find an image of reverse for the Australians. What is offered is very doubtful for me. Thanks.

All I can say is that I know, or think I know, that the Aussies did name theirs.  But perhaps better to save your silver until you can confirm this one or one like it. Sorry that's not more help. :(
