Lucky you! great book too, although I prefer 'And No Birds Sang' for its real honesty about the war and Mowat's experiences including, he admits, running away at one point. A 19 year old officer! ...

Indeed one of the more attractive European awards, IMO. I've always regretted not keeping the only group I owned - to an Indian Army cavalry offcier, oddly - which contained an Order of the Crown.

I don't think so, Gary. Nepali uses Deva Nagri script, or one very very like it, not Arabic.

Research, research, research. Raed all you can, then look at examples on forums, then hang about shops and shows. THEN, when you know what's what, spend money.

The quality of the KOSB badge - a bad casting, not stamped - suggests that this is a civilian fashion item. It certainly isn't an issue badge from either war. The 'Royal Scots' badge is nothing...

Might the liner be a modern repro, made for the re-enactment trade? They are offered by several companies and, as they're probably made in India, uneven stitching and so on would be quite possible.
