pals,

i am thinking of buying replica BWM & VM off ebay as i am unable to trace my Great Uncle's originals, has anyone had any experience buying these good or bad? also does anyone know where i could get them inscribed?

thanks

Depends who made them as to whether they are good or bad. I've bought a few replicas in the past for a variety of reasons and they ranged from "almost identical" to just plain awful!

Many trophy shops and some jewellers will engrave them for you. If you want them stamping, then that's a bit more difficult.

:) Hello,

You should post the details of your Gt Uncle's medals on the forum, ie Name rank Number. you just never know, they may be out there.

Regards,

Alternatively, you could purchase a pair (or 2 singles) to a more "common" (no offence intended) Corps like the RA or RE. Personally that's the route I'd take....... you'll be remembering your Gt Uncle and the other men on the medals rather than taking your chances on iffy copies. Copies can also cost more!!!
