    Wagriff- Thanks for your kind words. I appreciate it! I'll make sure to post good photos.
    Crites- the other medals are a germany-france star and a Candadian Volunteer medal. Goodluck with your Italy star search!
    ww1ww2, thanks for the words!

    Managed to pick up a first world war Canadian Stretcher Bearers brodie and a second world war helmet he had from the veterans niece. She says she had his gasmask but threw it out as it was deteriorating in condition (!!!) The brodie has his name written in it, as well as a piece

    I'll upload some pictures soon! The second world war helmet has 232 stenciled on it. Also, a dent or ping that I would guess is a bullet hit.. but I'm not sure. Could be any old dent I suppose. I'll show pictures. The helmet is dated 1941, a nice early war helmet. I'm not sure if the 232 means it is homeguard/rear use.

    Thanks everyone!
