    Sir Reginald Wingate's medals

    Recommended Posts

    Not so uncommon apparently but he was one of a number of generals to have received both the Military GCB and the Civilian division - here a CB.

    But he had some interesting stuff to go with that .... ÖEK1 and ÖFJ1.


    Not to mention these!
