As I am selling a great deal of my wwI and wwII relics, I was going through some boxes today, taking pictures and making price lists.
Amazing the amount of stuff I have that I totally forgot about, packed in boxes. One of the odd items I came across is this finger ring, a relic that i found some years ago in Belgium.
Now as have managed to locate the family of the bracelet I found also some years ago, and have returned it to the son of the GI that lost it, I was wondering if I could pull the same trick with this item.
It has a name, only a first name unfortunately, but as it has a service number it could be possible I think, with a little help.
I would love to be able to return this ring to where it belongs, and if I don't succeed I will sell it to somebody who wants to give it a try. Put the ring up for auction some years ago, but got some e-mails about it that it was wrong to sell a personal item like this, although a museum offerderd me 150 euro's for it.
Anyway, if anybody has info on this item, or access to the British records please let us know!
The rings has the following inscription;
I don't know if the two first figures are numbers or the letter H due to some wear on the corners of the ring (if British service numbers used letters).
Would be great to know who the owner was, and what happend to him and why he lost the ring.
