    Bringing this old thread back up, as since 2009 things have changed in the world of research. Forum member Auke now offers a very competitive research service. To have this one researched today would cost $56. If you need the citation etc translated he can do this for a small additional fee of around $15 to $20.

    I will be having this one researched now.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade. I look forward to seeing the results of the research. I have a few bravery and combat service awards that are part of groups which I would like researched however I was always put off by the 100 pound price however now Auke offers such a competitive service I may think again.
