    1572596 Sgt K Fowler 77th Assault Squadron RE.

    According to the family, the flag/banner was taken as a sovenier in Goch/Reichswald area and then embroidered by Ken in between battles!

    I have now had grandad’s medals mounted by a wonderful chap over on the BMF, and also purchased a case to keep them in. I will never wear them but, as I mentioned before, I do have a miniature group (picture 4) for wearing on my right breast on Remembrance Sunday (as Steve, bamboo43, once wisely put it, a compromise). The Dunkirk is not mounted, I simply added it to the case for “completion”.

    Had to add their NAMCAS3 for the badge and also NAMCAS2 for grandad’s details.

    I got the smaller version for my brother for Christmas, as he also has a miniature group, liked what they did very much and thought it would be just the ticket for the original group.

    Trooper Fredrick Walter Bagley,
    1 Troop, B Squadron, 1st Lothians and Border Yeomanry, 1939-1945
    8th King's Royal Irish Hussars, 1950-51


    The photo doesn't do it justice to be honest. Looks great on the wall.
    Alas only the Lothians shoulder title is his - the rest I've collected over past few years.
