My Uncle Gordon's Medals.

Recommended Posts

My uncle Gordon passed away a few years ago.Everyone called him Don.

He served in the 21st Independent Parachute Company in WWII,pathfinders I believe ?

At my request,I recently received these photo's from my cousin of his medals.

We have the 1939-45 Star,France and Germany Star,Defence Medal,General Service Medal with Palestine Bar and two Terretorial Medals,one with two 6 year bars.

Nice to finally get the photo's of this grouping.
