Some fantastic Medal Groups From Scotland!

Hi all, I was recently in Scotland and took the opportunity to capture some images of the medal groups on display at the National War Museum.

What makes it different is that it is the National War Museum and as such it covers all the armed branches and all of the Military History of Scotland.

I hope that you enjoy them as much as I did!!!

A great display KB.

Lance Corporal Angus was 1 of 3 winners of the V.C. from the small village of Carluke, Lanarkshire.

(Lt James Martin (see your post #12) was the officer (and friend) rescued by Corporal Angus).

The AM for saving his former enemies is splendid.

The first group is a bit "improperly dressed" with the OC rose on the ribbon rather than the bar but I guess OK if the actual recipient chose to wear it like that! But he would have been told off at an OCA parade!

very common to see rosette and no bar - I have a star with 2 rosettes AND the bar

Technically very true - note that the bottom of the index cards state how they came to be in the possession of the Museum. Likely that this was his wife who donated them I suspect. They look to be the original ribbons mounted on the bar as he would have worn them. (The Top bar for the DSO being loose). Nice group though.

Great pictures as ever; I'm particularly impressed with the medals of the incomparable William Angus. Givenchy is a favourite place of mine and I may be able to get to the area next month when I'm over. I'm doing the Lys area on foot based in Englos just outside Lille so it might be a bit far. I might be able to hitch-hike with a passing tractor, you never know.......
