Someone mentioned this forum in another thread.

I'd not come across it before but it looks interesting.

I was just wondering whether anyone else was a member?

There's a few of us, though I haven't been on it for quite a while.

Just Google it, Steven.

I just had to look - the name sounded so pervy. I shall regard Mr Hesketh in a new light (preferably one to be kept under a bushel). :ph34r:

Nah. I'm a member as well, although I haven't posted or visited for a while. (wanted to ask about 15th Regiment of foot and had some helpful replies) Ladies are welcome as well and the members were all rather gentlemanly

One went and had a wander round last night - and One thought it was a rather large club.

One did join as one thought it would be impolite not to do so.

Isn't it for Collectors rather than Researchers (who may also collect, I know)?

Dear Kath, :D

If I may be as bold to say, that, if not all, then a large part of the members at G.M.I.C, are interested in the identity of the person the medals were awarded to, as well as the criteria, history, of the various awards and decorations.

Some of the members specialise in trying to re-unite the articles from an individual, that have been broken up, (while admitedly this can often be easier to do with regards the high-end officer awards, rather than the lowley other ranks.)

Other members often give advice on how to spot fakes, or recently made "fantasy bars" brightly coloured flasy combinations of ribbons, designed to part the unwary from their hard earned cash.

Others are are very interested in the documentation pertaining to the soldier, his "soldbuch" and "Urkunde" the equivelent of the Soldiers Pay-book and brevets authorising his medal awards.

For them its not about just having a collection of bright shiny do-da's, but trying to discover the history of the person behind the items and to preserve it for future genorations.

Members interests are as varied as countries that the members belong. But research is part of what they do as well.

In some ways their intent is the same as the good members of this forum (only covering far more conflicts that just that of the Great War.)
