Hello David,
A superb group, do you collect tribute medals, I would only ever buy them in groups if I did.

Hi Frank.....

Even if they are not in a group they can be quite fascinating......

Frank,

While they are fascinating as Mike says, I have only ever ventured into buying the Kimberley tribute medals to which I am quite partial!

Best wishes
David

Hello all,

Having done a little digging, I have discovered that the town of Forth presented twelve tribute medals to volunteers on 26th June 1902.

See: Forth Tribute Medal

As you will see this is of a different design to the Corporal Robb medal. I suspect the latter is unique, subscribed for by close friends.
