    I agree!

    I will be particularly interested to see the Australia Service Medal as they don't often appear in UK. If possible it would be great to see close up images of the naming style too.

    Hi. I have two Aussie service medals they do have to be my favourite. The one I have it’s I’m not good condition but it’s a great example. I have a defence medal to a British born subject in great condition with original issue and compliment’s. Medal collecting is really good for me as better then helmets

    Apologies if you already knew this, but you can see John Latimer Clarke's 15 page WWII file on National Archives website. You must be very proud of your G-Grandfathers WWII service.
    Cheers.

    Hi. Yes I was since I’m the direct descendant of him. Luckly his daughter is still alive. He had a brother alwyn latimar Clarke who died on hmas Yarra he was my great great uncle. My g.g.g uncle saw service in Middle East and the pacific. I never knew the family history I had. I own the original photo of my great grandad. He was awarded an honourable discharge.
