Afternoon Brett,
Certainly from the photograph, at least, the first two appear untouched for a considerable amount of time and are as worn by Cooke.

It's bilingual so it must be rare..... B) ;)

Nice group though - I might just have a flutter.... although one never knows whether or not there is a 1914/15 Star lying in a box somewhere.
