    Very nice slot brooch Purple Heart. The ribbon and lapel pin should not be too hard to find...

    Thanks, the search as started. Plenty in the States although shipping is costly for such small items.

    Brilliant Phil thanks for that link, going on that data i think it is a mark 111, 1943-45 made, unsure if the box is original to the medal though, it is in super condition regardless, Steve
