    Hi Neil, certainly issued in WW2, somewhere between 1943 and 1945.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Here is a sample of a couple of serial numbers and award dates:

    2651351
    1/02/1943


    2759305
    25/05/1945

    So this medal would be before Feb 43 or even 42?

    Hi Neil, it is not an exact science, as medals were given out to various armies and fronts and so sometimes a higher serial number can be issued before a lower number. This is due to some fronts being more active than others and so more medals got awarded.

    Here is another sample serail number and award date for you:

    1911413
    30/04/1945

    But the main thing is yours will have been a WW2 issue.

    Cheers, Ade.

    My pleasure. It is a good medal with a nice patina and wear.
