new member here- hello!

Recommended Posts

 ive been looking for a user forum like this for a while they arent easily found so far! ive inherited a large collection of badges, many canadian but there are many british and US as well. I also have been sorting through a military ribbon collection that seems to be a world collection. im hoping to find information and ill slowly be putting up lots for sale as there are many duplicates and extras ive found while sorting. 

 any other ribbon collectors here? id like to know a few things about these as its an unfamiliar hobby to me so far....

 thanks for having me! hello from victoria bc canada!

Thank you all for the warm welcome, Ive been procrastinating in sorting through the boxes, as its intimidating for me having little experience with the ribbons, medals and badges though the badges are at least of interest to me in learning about their history. Ill be tackling the ribbons first I believe, and is a subject which I know nothing about and have had very little luck with finding any decent online resources so far. Im betting that user forums like this will be of the most interest if ribbons and medals are anything like stamps and coin collecting, but the reality is Im fresh in this hobby so please bear with.... thank you all!

Hi Tsand,

Welcome to the forum, I think the fastest way to ID what you have is to post pictures of them here in this forum, usually there will be a solid answer within a day. Every member will be pleased to help, and so am I. Just share the pictures with us.

Enjoy going trough your treasure!

    • 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.
