    I think that's what you call a 'one looker'! Nice cross Nick.

    Cheers Adrian, I love the three grades of this award and I think the silver and gold are just beautiful but unfortunately out of my reach

    A very nice cross, Nick !

    The zinc awards always puzzle me because they look so plain and poorly
    made - almost as if they were purposely constructed to degrade
    over a short period of time, even though I know there were
    wartime restrictions placed on 'strategic metals'.

    Many of these awards lose their thinly coated finishes rather quickly
    and sometimes have a blight or bloom that looks sort of like
    a chalky white powder.

    If the war had been won by their side, there surely would have been
    'upgrades' available of much better quality for all these dark,
    lusterless medals, badges and pins !


    I really do like them though ! !
    Regards,


    Steve.
