    Nice additions Terry! They are both S&L, constructed with a separate backplate. Deumers had the background painted black, thus no backplate. Your silver is mid production, would need to see a photo of the pin to date the other one.

    Is the catch broken off on the bronce close combat clasp or is it the photo?

    Regards

    Edit: Never mind, I can see the catch when I zoom in.

    Hello Nick the catch is there it was open when the wife was taking the photos.. I will get some more photos when I get home in 2 weeks..Thanks for the info..I knew the Silver was a mid 60s job.. But I couldn't remember who was the maker? Thanks for the info on the back plates I didn't know that at all so I learnt something today which is nice....I need to keep my eyes peeled for a Gold one now..Cheers Terry.

    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
