    An underrated group of medals in my opinion. They look great together and picking up the original bars is good fun too!

    Forget the Battle of Britain one though!

    Yes, I have my father's from WWII and thought I might try and get the others as well. And I know the ribbons on two of them are on the wrong way round, as the dark blue for the royal Navy should come first as the senior service.

    Are these well copied as well Jerry if so do happen to know what the spot the differences are?
    I suspect it will be the ďEĒ /pebbling/smoothness of the back ect,
    Also do know what your dad had mention for?
    Well done

    Nice medal Jerry. Seeing this star has reminded me to buy replacements of my grandfathers medals from WW2. I keep meaning to but find other things i buy instead. Thanks for sharing

    I think all are copied these days Rod. I think one of the clues to fakes is that they are thicker than originals.

    He got his mention for carrying a wounded comrade to safety whilst under enemy fire.

    Thanks Jerry.
    He should have got more than a mention. Brave men!
    I only have two stars so far, donít know why because they arenít expensive apart from the air crew star. One is an African star with 8th army bar which I got from someone who bought at a market years ago in New Zealand , must have belonged to a Kiwi.
    Thanks again happy hunting!
