Blimey Les.

Pte.Stripe's family must be wondering how he won that one!

I have e-mailed him to at least advise that the ribbon may be original, but ain't for that medal! If/when I hear back I'll let you all know.

(still sniggering to himself :lol: )

EDIT - Just checked the listing (on the off chance) and they've amended the name of the medal and also the ribbon to be "proper to the Allied Victory Medal" - my words to him/her... so they've certainly taken some note.

the pair to Pte Stripe are worth a pop. shame theres no history to how the IC actually fits in, documented as souvenired for example.

Hey chaps,

This really is uncanny! I have the medals for Pte Stripes elder brother... Sgt Stripes! He won the bowling alley singles championship in 1919: 1st class shot with crossed clubs, and the prestigeous 'Golden Boot' award of the same campaign, for seeing that his men were all attending the church parade! Offers are open to you chaps as a special favour first... Mugs of tea only accepted.. no sugar!
