Did anyone here happen to see the group belonging Second Lieutenant Gordon Thomas Collinson, RAF on AGM before it disappeared?
Group of material belonging to Second Lieutenant Gordon Thomas Collinson, a Canadian-born pilot who flew an S.E.5a with No. 41 Squadron and later served in WWII with the Royal Canadian Air Force. Medals include a three-place parade mount with: British War Medal 1914-20 impressed on the rim, "2. LIEUT. G.T. COLLINSON. R.A.F"; WWI Victory Medal impressed the same as War Medal and with Mentioned-in-Dispatch palm on the ribbon; and French 1914-18 Croix de Guerre. A separate, unmounted Canadian Volunteer Service Medal. Finally, two pieces of insignia accompany the group: Very attractive pair of 96mm wide, 1916-style, full-dress gold bullion wings with paper and canvas back for wear on the patrol jacket and a 1918-issue bullion, brass and red velvet cap badge for officer's below Air Rank. Comes with folder of research documenting Collinson's military career. Very fine group of material from an extremely active and effective fighter squadron
