    A very nice condition WWI Victory Medal named to a soldier in the Royal Scots Fusiliers. The medal is named and numbered to "62985 PTE. W. BROWN. R. SC. FUS." Private Walter Brown served with the Royal Scots Fusiliers during WWI, and also appears to have served with the Labour Corps with a separate service number of 478009 (this Labour Corps part is not on the medal).

    The medal is in fantastic condition for it's age, the front of the medal features a Winged Figure to represent Victory. Written on the back is, "THE GREAT WAR FOR CIVILIZATION 1914-1919." No major scratches on the medal, nor is there much patina/rust, or really any signs of aging. The ribbon is in spectacular condition and looks practically ageless, no staining, etc. the ribbon looks like it was straight from when it was first created and mailed to Private Brown.

    This medal came alone, it is unknown where it's companion is but still a nice single medal.

    Overall a great condition medal to a Private that served in WWI with a famous Scottish regiment as well as the Labour Corps.

      blunderbuss,

      I'm afraid not tonight, but I may or may not have a few more controversial items up my sleeve, or shall I say on my shelf, and most certainly more to be added in my collection in the future. I'm afraid poor Private Brown's Victory Medal won't get as much of a discussion as my beloved NSDAP armband did, but perhaps some future *German* items to come may spark more intense debates, hopefully more conspiracies too, lol! Thanks for stopping by as always, blunder.

      I posted a number of Nazi/German items in the past, here on CW. Have a few left I would like to find a good home for.

      What kind of items you still have, blunder?

      The British military units always have interesting names such as fusiliers, dragoons and grenadiers (or were those German?). American names are a bit less colorful.

      Hello Fortapache,

      Yes the British regiments always have such interesting names, I agree, which is a big part of why I like them so much. Many of the names come from the 1600s and 1700s, not sure the countries of origin of the names themselves, but Grenadiers originally carried grenades and fuses, fusiliers were originally artillery escorts in the British army, and I believe similar to the Grenadiers in ways, Dragoons were mounted cavalrymen with carbines. I'm afraid I can't name a single American regiment, but the British regiments are much more distinctive, arguably more well known, at least by name? Maybe that's just for me because I collect all this stuff. The Royal Scots Fusiliers has one of neatest names of all the Scottish regiments in my opinion, always looking out for more stuff to the Scots Fusiliers but believe it or not these medals are the first item I have to the regiment thus far.

      Many thanks for your comment, and thanks again for stopping by my friend.

      Best regards,

      -Jamie

      Blunderbuss,

      I would absolutely love to see some of your German item(s) when you find them.

      Best regards,
