Greece, Armed Forces World War II Medal 1940-41

This is an interesting medal for our growing band of collectors of war medals. An original medal issued to members of the Greek armed forces during the Second World War. These pieces should be of great interest to collectors, as due to the comparatively smaller numbers issued they are not so often seen or offered for sale! The number of pieces available is quite limited, and we are now offering them at a very reasonable price.

World War II 1939-45 British War Medal

In the past we have offered these two British World War II War Medals. But as they usually come from overseas the quality was alright but not all that great. We were recently offered from one of our contacts in Scotland a group of these War Medals in Brilliant brand new condition. We couldn’t believe it when wesaw them, they were brand new condition and as bright as the day they were struck. Here we present ‘The War Medal’ with the crowned bust of King George VI and the red, white and blue ribbon. We believe that they were bought directly from the Ministry of Defence and that is why they are in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Obviously made for the War and just put away and forgotten. These are fantastic; the quality is the best that I have seen. You can have these Brilliant Uncirculated medals. We have never seen them so good and I might never see them this quality again. Simply Fantastic!

Picture of World War II Defence Medal

World War II Defence Medal

World War II Defence Medal. The Defence Medal was issued to members of the armed forces serving at home and in territories overseas that were subjected to air attack or closely threatened during the Second World War. Also included were members of the Home Guard (Dad’s Army), Civil Defence and Fire Service. On the obverse is a profile portrait of King George VI. On the reverse two Lions supporting a crowned Oak tree with the dates 1939/1945 and the legend ‘The Defence Medal’. The colours on the ribbon are rather interesting and appropriate: The two broad green stripes represent ‘This green and pleasant land’, the narrow black stripes represent ‘the Blackout’ imposed during the air raids of the Blitz and the wide orange stripe represents the firebombing during the Blitz. A medal issued 72 years ago that is becoming harder to find. A very interesting addition to your collection.
