Dating a Army Medal of Honour

Recommended Posts

This should be an old, although not awarded, Army MoH. When looking at other web sites I can see that these are classified as ie type 4 or 5 and are normally dated for WW1, WW2 or other periods. But I simply don't have a clue of what to look for and have been unable to find an online source, so any help would be appreciated. If anybody knows, try to explain what to look for instead if simply saying "type something". Thanks, Lars

Chris, you may be right, I'm completely out of my comfort zone here, so any comments in respect of originality is appreciated as well.

I am no expert, but the enamel work looks more industrial modern, the extra metal fluff on the holes have not been removed... it looks like an award made 100% by machine with no human touchups or quality control.

    • 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.
