Fantastic grouping JS !!

I have a very keen interest in WWII RAF groupings as my uncle served in the RAF during WWII. So much so that I have several WWII RAF DFM groupings including one to a Pole and an RAF DFC grouping to boot.

The Memorial Cross is very moving. I have one to a Kiwi who was serving in the RAF.

Huge thanks for showing !!

Vic

JS - OUTSTANDING group. I have always had an affinity for "Yanks in the RAF' groups. As an RCAF airman his Memorial Cross ties everything together as none of the other medals are named. Paperwork is also outstanding.

Vic,
I have a few more groupings, two with DFC's, but unfortunately they have no US connection.
I have grown to really appreciate the "British-style" of Medal crafting.
Thank you for your comments.
