George Cross Replica with ribbon

The George Cross or ‘GC’ as it is affectionately known is the highest award that a civilian can get. It is also sometimes awarded to military personnel for an act for which military honours would not normally come into play. This is a handsome replica, as only 157 real ones have been issued since its inception in 1941. You have St. George and the dragon in the middle of a cross with ‘For Gallantry’ round the centre. King George VI’s cipher is in the angles. There is a bar that has ornamented laurels and the ribbon is a dark blue. These replicas are stamped ‘Copy’ on the reverse so no one could confuse them with originals. An original will sell for between £8,000 and £12,000. So even if you could find one, you might not be able to afford it… This handsome replica is large and heavy, just like the original but priced so that most collectors can afford it.

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.
