Meurig,

I, like you, am on the lookout for a MM/QSA group and looked closely at the groups at DNW. A great shame about the missing Star in the group to Pte Blyth.



Best wishes

Meurig,

I hadn't see that and hadn't even heard of the auctioneers, Reeman Dansie.

Its rather a nice group but I note they don't even list the clasps on the QSA!

Kind regards
David

This newspaper clipping has been passed on to me by a member of BMF.......

Mike,

Ref Peter Keane, M.M.:

Falkirk Herald - Saturday 28 December 1940

"VETERAN SOLDIER HAS MEDALS RESTORED.— Through the good offices of County Councillor John Wilson, J.P., and the Rev. B. D. Sinclair, parish minister, Mr Peter Keane, M.M., a highly respected local resident has had restored to him by the War Office medals which were lost through a fire in his home a considerable time ago. The medals comprised the South African (Queen’s) Medal with four bars; the Mons Star, the Military Medal, and the General Service and Victory Medals of the Great War. Mr Keane has served three campaigns, including the present war. In the Great War, 1914-1918, he was decorated with the Military Medal for reconnoitring an enemy outpost. He joined the Army originally forty-two years ago."

Interesting that the article states he was serving in 'the present war.' I wonder in what capacity and whether he is entitled to further medals?

And my reply.......

Thank You and Good Morning Jonny......

This is greatly appreciated and he could have been in the Home Guard..... I have a couple of groups that have men who served in the HG one for only 3 weeks.....

The medals that I have are not marked as being replacements or Duplicates..... Lost in a Fire?????
These are properly named and in the proper style...... Pawned ?????

Thanks Again
