    Default The war souvenirs of my great-grandfather, Ebenezer Reid.

    Hi guys,

    I thought I'd take some shots of some of the medals and items that my great grandfather Ebenezer Reid brought home with him from the First World War.

    He served with the 39th Battalion of the Australian Infantry.

    Sorry about the lighting, not the nicest day down here!

    I'll start with a group shot:

    Lovely set but I'm no expert on these, but do you have info on the large rising sun as I've never seen on like this and I like it.
    Is one of these your GG? Search & Retrieve - Session timed out

    Thank you gentleman! It's great to have something tied to a relative.. I sometimes wonder if he and I share the same collecting bug! I appreciate your comments..

    Rene, I do not have any more information on the rising sun but I can take some more closeups if you'd like, of the details plus the back of the piece (it has been a mystery for me also)?

    Also, the link wasn't working when I tried it but I'd love to see the photograph! Any chance of saving it then posting?

    Be careful there are a lot of 'restrikes' out there. 500 euro's for a collection of this quality would be fair.
