All WW2 medals except commonwealth gallantry L/service Good conduct or GSM are un-engraved
And commonwealth war and defence medals were silver unlike UK issue.
Ours are cupro nickel as is the OSM. :cry:
Would this be why when i recently applied for a gong for my grandad after 64 years (1939-45 medal i think) it didnt have anything on the back whatsoever???
Thats correct mate only WW2 meds named were territorial long service /good conduct, Gsm for SE Asia 1945/46 GSM Palastine, Gallentry medals. All the 8 stars, The war medal and defence medal unmarked, except for Canadian South African and Australia and NewZealand I'm not sure of.
And if anyone picks up on the fact that I was born in Oz and brought up there until I was 13,my old man was a scot and his medals are British so did not see any Aussie ones at a young and tender age.
