    Hi folks, By way of a reference for those that are interested in WW2 British campaign medals here is my nearly complete collection of originals. The only two missing are the "BATTLE OF BRITAIN" & the "BOMBER COMMAND" (Don't want to sell a kidney just yet) For further reference here is another link that includes those. The Battle of Britain clasp to the 1939/45 Star: identifying originals and copies Best regards, Paul

    Great to see these. As you will know there are probably more fakes of these than were ever issued and many originals were undoubtedly lost because they were not issued sewn to the ribbon just loose in the envelope. As many medals were never worn by the recipients or even mounted the clasps have tended to come adrift when the medals were later played with by enthusiastic schoolboys!

    Thanks for showing and if I find a spare BoB or Bomber Clasp I'll give you a shout

    Regards
