This site is dedicated to my Grandfather, who disappeared after returning from WWI. He fought for my freedom which I know does not come without cost. I am eternally grateful for his efforts and what he stood for. I love you Grandad, good on ya mate. FOR KING & COUNTRY. R.I.P. Albert Alfred Curry.

Medals are for Campaigns, Battles and Gallantry in military service

War Medals and Ribbon Bars show the colours of the campaign medals and can help identify quickly a servicepersonís war experience. Worn above the top left hand breast. A clasp attached to a medals ribbon or a silver rosette represents a special meaning. Medals are usually inscribed with the personís service number, rank, name and unit on the leading edge.

Here are some websites that can help you understand more what they really mean and represent and how to preserve them. I was fortunate to be given my grandfathers original medals from the Great War.
