Default Medallion Militaria

Does anybody know anything about Medallion Militaria in New Zealand?
I purchased two badges from them over six weeks ago, the badges didn't arrive and now my Emails to them are bouncing back due to no response from Medallion Militaria.

There’s this on Facebook page in the reviews section. Plus they don’t seem to have ‘posted’ anything on their timeline since 2017.

Update... look at the second screenshot I’ve just added, noticed it on comments attached to one of the reviews. Sadly it seems the owner has passed away.

Thanks for that Luke, it is sad that the owner has passed. It looks like I will not receive the badges now. Nothing can be done about that.

Maybe give them a call and see if anyone answers? He may have had a wife or family member who may be able to assist you.

Found the number on their FB page.

It is unfortunate your badges have not arrived after a 6 week wait.
Your best option is to try Dave's brother Geoff, as he is helping the family with the disposal of Dave's merchandise.

But if it is lost in the mail, I am not sure that he can do anything for you.
Did you ask for tracking or insurance?

Geoff has his own militaria business and your best way of contact is thru is website below.

As suggested by Brent, try Geoff Oldham. He is currently away in UK and Asia for 6 weeks, should be back in around 4 weeks time from now. They tried for some time to gain access to both website and email accounts before managing to get website shut down, for the very reason that orders were being placed but not actioned. I am sure your item will still be in Auckland, and not missing. Geoff should be able to sort on his return

Default Geoff in the UK

I can confirm Dave Oldham passed away after a long illness.
I'd known him for over 40 years when he opened up his first unit and last saw him earlier this year on one of my flying visits back home.

Geoff is in the UK and i'm due to see him for lunch in a couple of days and will pass on your concerns.

RIP Dave, much missed.
