Opinions on this Dunkirk medal please

Post by rankfilm » 22 May 2018 21:12

Hi everyone

Thanks again to those who've helped me in the past.

I thought I'd share some medals someone at work gave me yesterday.

I'm interested to know what people think of the Dunkirk commemorative medal.

I've read conflicting opinions - someone advised that it's a copy because it has no Paris makers mark on the front.

However, I've also read that the Paris mark was on the first set from the 60s that were issued to French personnel only.

Does anyone know if the medals issued to British personnel from the 70s had the Paris lettering.

I have no reason to believe it to be a copy/fake. The person who gave them to me also believes their grandfather (who owned the medal) was at Dunkirk.

Thanks, opinions are gladly welcome.
