Thanks :) The Burma Star is my Grandfathers and I have just acquired another one to put in this collection as I wanted to keep his group together - here is a pic of my Grandfathers medals along with my Fathers Palestine 1946 - 1948 General Service Medal and my Territorial Efficiency Medal

You must be very proud of your relatives' medals. Keep them in the family!

love the british stars, currently trying the same with all the stars and clasps apart from battle of britain.

need an authentic aircrew star to finish, everytime i put the money away for it i can't find any so buy something else.

then sure as, one pops up sods law.

 

need to write out a list and keep to it
