It's certainly "been there"!....

You were conned...
Books published to date... 'Belfast Diaries: A Gunner In Northern Ireland'... 'A Tough Nut To Crack - Andersonstown'... 'An Accrington Pal: The Diaries of Pte Jack Smallshaw, September 1914 To March 1919'.
I think this one is a Brüder Schneider, Wien example with "crimped in" hardware that has (obviously ;-) seen better days.
The BSW variants have a design all their own and did not use the so-called "Vienna Design" obverse that Orth, GR&Co, WH, etc. makers used.
Here is a side comparison with one of mine.

Thanks fischer - that is indeed very interesting. Although I know next to nothing about these awards, I had noticed that it looked a little different in detail to others posted here......
