Royal Artillery Distinguished Conduct Medal 1917

A most interesting group 🙂 Such a pity about the star, although I have a couple of medals that have flaws, even a re-engraved 1914-15 star, to a DCM & MM group….

Thursday May 16th 2013. I acquired a First World War DCM Medal Group.

Whole group

Distinguished Conduct Medal and Star, BWM, Victory Trio. 4 medals in all. Wrongly mounted on 2 bars. I bought it knowing that there was a problem with the 1914 – 15 Star.

The DCM has some knocks and has definitely been worn which is good to know.

The medals as follows:
