Default LRDG, V Force & SAS

A medal collector at heart, I couldn't walk past these at a car boot in 2018. I've no doubt, for what I paid, they're not genuine but mounted , as I mount my medals for display, I quite like 'em.

Cheers John.

From the photographs, I would say you have certainly posted in the appropriate section of this forum, still, never mind, I'm sure you knew what you were buying.

Cheers Steve. I was under no misconception (is that the right word) that they were anything but original but, for 5, I couldn't walk past them.

And in that frame, yeah, I quite like them.

Kind regards John.
