    Hi

    I thought I would post the first medal I brought. A named 1939-1945 medal to M21918 A:Hoffman.

    I have no information about his service career so any help would be much appreciated.

    Hi

    Interesting, thanks for the link. So this particular medal was issued to a member of the commonwealth.

    Also, is there any way of identifying which part of the commonwealth it came from?

    Thanks

    Not Australian awarded-the medal you have is copper plated with nickel (that has worn or been stripped off)-a British issue-can't help you with the name though...

    Hi

    I am a complete novice when it comes to World War Two British Medals, but if it is named and British issue would it have been privately done?

    Thanks

    Don't know-you'll need Adrian or Big Ned or other British collectors for that-theyll help you-researching British veterans is much harder than Australians unfortunately.

    Hoffman is a S.African surname, maybe look in that direction.

    Hi Cameron. WWII British medals were not issued named. Apparently only
    South African and Australian medals were officially impressed - I would
    try the South African connection, as Tom above suggests.........
