medals

A vast field, covering many eras and countries. Specialist reference books on every period and country can be found. One book - Price Guide: Orders and Decorations, Germany 1871-1945 by Detlev Niemann (2004) - is highly recommended (I have several in stock at 50 each plus postage).

militaria item Order of the White Eagle, 5th class
- Serbian
This would have been awarded from 1882 onwards to Serbians who had distinguished themselves in their country's cause and also to foreigners who had aided the Serbian cause. The 5th class is the lowest grade of the order. Beneath this, they simply issued medals.

militaria item Kaiser Karl bronze gallantry medal
- Austrian
This is the basic KuK award for bravery in the reign of Kaiser Karl, who succeeded Franz Joseph on his death in the winter of 1916. He reigned until November 1918, when he abdicated and went into exile. It is an official issue, as the designer's name Kautsch is in raised letters on the emperor's shoulder - tailors' copies do not have this feature.

militaria item RAF Athletics & Cross Country Association bronze medal
- British
This medal (F. Phillips of Aldershot is on the inside of the case lid and also in raised lettering on the reverse of the medal itself) was created in the early 1920s for athletics and crosscountry running. It shows Icarus having his wings strapped on by a bearded assistant. The reverse is marked 'Team Championships 1924 Open Tug-of-War Winners'.

militaria item Franz Josef I small KuK gallantry medal, tailor's copy
- Austrian
Note the lack of maker's initials on the shoulder of the emperor's bust - this mark was always found on official issue medals. However, there would appear to be a maker's mark on the reverse ('S.G.A.'). Typically this would have been worn on the tunic, while the original would have been treasured in its box.

militaria item Prussian Merit medal, FWIII, silver
- German
This medal was introduced by King Frederick William III of Prussia (1797-1840) to award other ranks and NCOs for military galantry. However, it could also be awarded to the civil service for meritorious conduct. The difference between civil and military was apparently in the colours of the ribbon (missing here).

militaria item Gladstone commemorative medal, 1894
- British
This medal commemorates the retirement of William Gladstone from the House of Commons in 1894. He had been Prime Minister four times and, along with Disraeli, he created the modern Conservative party. There is a 50-line inscription on the reverse, listing the MPs of 1894. It is by Messrs L.C. Lauer and it was struck by J. Rochelle Thomas.

militaria item WW2 War Medal, sterling silver
- Canadian
This is the sterling silver version issued in 1945 to Canadian troops for service overseas in World War 2. The British version was struck in nickel silver, but for some reason the Canadians were lucky enough to have theirs issued in somewhat finer metal. It carried the normal ribbon for the British example, sadly missing.

militaria item WW2 War & Defence Medals
- British
This is the classic pair of campaign awards for WW2; indeed, other than the India Service Medal and the War Medal in silver for the Canadians, they were the only circular medals issued by the British Empire in WW2.
