    Not sure what you are posting? Is this an information post or are you selling this material?
    Either way, images would be helpful.

    Hi and welcome to the CMCF. Since you are selling the medals, you should familiarize yourself with the rules for buying and selling. http://www.cdnmilitarycollectors.com/t704-marketplace-rules-regulations-restrictions
    You need to indicate the price and images are required.
    Sounds like a great group of medals and historical memorabilia. Looking forward to seeing it.

    To be fair, the images should be posted here. And, what is the asking price?

    I have merged these two topics, so things may seem a little disjointed at the moment. I have PMed the original poster and offered to upload the photos for them is they wish.

    This group sounds fascinating, although outside even my broadest collection focus.

    Uploading photos provided by the original poster. Please note, for my own ease of organizing the images, I chose to rename the photos, if there is an error, it is solely my own.

    As Bill had sated above, as the seller, we ask that you set a price for this group and prominently display it.

    I don't know price to make of it really there's so much history behind it for the past 2 days I've been doing some much research to finding out stuff I ask make me a reasonable offer and I will let u know I know the dfc alone is worth 3000 to 4000 and there is more history behind it I know that some dfc awards were just given for flying so many hours of service but I found the story behind my grandfather's as he saved every crew members life as the Lancaster was shot down in a bombing Raid in kassel on March 8th it says that shortly after the bombs had been released the aircraft sustained severe damage. The fuselage main plane tail unit and the mid - upper and rear gun turrets were all affected. The elevators jammed and the aircraft dived out of control. Several thousand feet in height were lost before flying officer wright succeeded in leveling out. With great difficulty he retained control and flew on to reach base where he landed the badly damaged aircraft safely. This officer displayed a high degree of courage and coolness in the face of great danger
