    Medal Identification Request

    Post by terrysnelgrove on Sat Sep 20, 2014 7:22 pm

    Good Day,

    My father was an active serviceman in the war. In his collection, there are two medals that i would like to have identified. Can someone please help? I uploaded some pictures but can't see them on my preview. Hopefully they're there. Thanks, Terry

    Assuming that the medals you have are Canadian take a look at this website, a good reference on Canadian service medals, decorations and orders.

    Thanks Lorne jr

    Good Morning Terry......

    Sorry but these are not Canadian and looking at the style of engraving they are either German or Austrian, north European at least...... They seem to be some sort of local shooting medals, maybe they are some of his trophies of war......
