  1. I dug out my old Brodie purchased 20 years ago in Northern France as a reconditioned WW1 item. Having looked at the forums here I am not sure when it is from, no stamps or plates that I can find. Any advice or pointers much appreciated, Bob.

    1918 lf&c

    My other military collectible is a trench knife I found almost 40 years ago while cleaning out my grand fathers garage. I don't know anything about the history of the knife, just something he picked up while operating a small freight company in San Francisco in the early 1900's.
  3. I just got this at a sale and can only find a few examples of this medal. What do you think replica? Help me ID its authenticity
  4. Hello, I am trying to find out some more information about my family's history and I could do with your help. I have this photo of my great Grandad taken in 1915-1916. Would anyone be able to help me identify his uniform? Thank you, your help in solving the mystery is very much appreciated :)
  5. Hi guys, I'm new here and was wondering if anyone could identify this piece and whether or not it's original or just a worn out fake. A few details to add that you may not see in the picture are the black-white-red krokades on the left side. I also noticed that there were no ventilation holes on the spike, and the base is oval, unlike other models I've been able to look up online. Thanks in advance!
  6. I recently had the pleasure of being part of the logistics team involved with placement of these medals and portrait, which were commissioned to the Royal Artillery Museum in London. These were part of the Revell Smith estate. Major General William Revell Smith was born in Melbourne Australia in 1894. Educated at Charterhouse school, he volunteered with the Westminster Dragoons in 1914 and served with the Egyptian Expeditionary Force. Later to be commissioned into Royal Artillery in 1916, he was promoted to Battery Commander. Married Norma Flowerdew Lowson in 1920, he then served in India from 1920-1938, leading expeditions to Kashmir, Sikkim and Western Tibet. Commander of 53 Light Anti-Aircraft Regiment in 1939, he commanded all anti- aircraft forces during the invasion of Normandy, and was promoted to Major General in 1945. He was General Officer Commanding Troops in Malta and North Africa in 1948-1949, he retired in 1949, and died in 1956. Decorations include - CB, CBE, DSO, MC & Bar, Albert Medal, France 1914/15, British War Medal, Victory Medal 1914/18 & Mention, 1939/45 Star, France & Germany Star, Defence Medal, 1939/45 War Medal & Mention, French Croix de Guerre with Palm, Commander Of Legion of Merit (America), Crown of Belgium (Commander), Belgium Croix de Guerre with Palm. One of the most decorated Officers in the history of the Armed Forces.
  7. A few years ago, whilst visiting the excellent Vienna military museum (definitely worth a visit if you are in the area), and on display in a side panel was this felt imperial guards? helmet, in M17 pattern. I just thought I would share it, as it is not something you see often. it reminds me of those fibre colonial M1915s.
  8. Hi everyone, I just wanted to share a picture of my First World War peak cap, badged for an Engine Room Artificier 4th class. The cap is part of a grouping with other uniform items and photos. The owner saw service form 1915 to 1919 and this caps dates to 1915. The badge is the same style as that used by Petty Officers, but ERAs used a purple ground instead of a black one. The gold anchor also shows this ERA was part of the Civil Branch (engineers / accounting etc). Best wishes and seasons greetings to all. Oli
  9. This one belongs to a good friend of mine, 1916 dated . It has a little bit of mothing, but is something that doesn't come along too often.... Bob
