    Nice medals. Looks like they were to have been returned to
    Colonel Hooper every year. Have you tried to gently lift out
    the backing pad ? There may be ribbons in behind.

    Lol - The Royal Marines are tough. I talked to one once at
    a pool party that a girlfriend's parents threw in 1976/77
    - Drum Major Buchannan. He said they used to take
    new recuits out on the ocean and toss them over-
    board one-by-one to see who could swim.
    He had a huge warship in full sail tattoed
    across his chest.
    Regards,

    First thing I did was look under pad, nothing there ,
    Came from a local estate , something I will keep I think.

    So I am guessing they are rare , as they weren't handed back ?

    I misread ! The match Itself was held by this Colonel Hooper,
    not the medals ! Probably not too common - but anyone
    can order sports medals from a trophy shop.........

    Google showed no results in pics or other examples , so I think they are rare , anything commando these days are overpriced .

    A friend of mine always says: " Go find one '' Meaning
    if you can't find a certain item fairly quickly, then
    that item is uncommon or rare.........

    The seller was almost going to hand them back to the family estate as he does with personal items he gets from unpaid storage lockers . Just was at the right place at the right time .
