    Hey everyone. Unfortunately I had to let my membership temporarily lapse to pay for a home health aide. Hopefully I will renew it next month. I miss the JOMSA and I know that I’ve missed some excellent articles. I plan to get back issues for all that I’ve missed..

    :D Doc

    I think I need to get permnission to use the photo. I’ll post it as soon as possible. I might be able to crop the group to just show the ASM with the Protea attachment.

    :D Doc

    I went on the DNW auction archive site and used the search phrase protea.

    Try that and see if you have more luck.

    DNW Auction Archive 4th Dec 2008 lot 780, illustration shows and example of the King Protea Flower on the Africa Service medal as part of an MC group.

    Hope this helps,

    Enjoy

    Hi Paul,

    You are always much more than welcome, Ed – it’s good to hear you again!

    Good catch, too. From H. Taprell Dorling 1946 edition, on a piece of paper stuck in & headed ‘Addenda’ we have:-

    "INDIA SERVICE MEDAL, 1939-45: This medal will be awarded for three years’ non-operational service with the Indian Forces between 3 September 1939 and 2 September 1945. It will not be awarded to anyone who qualifies for the Defence Medal but will be granted in addition to the War Medal and the Campaign Stars."

    The source of this information is cited as a statement to the House of Commons by the Prime Minister on 6 June 1946.

    Guys,
    It’s was just habit. For over two years I had to post both the the JOMSA Cover and Index Pages and Convention information in the forum because our Webmaster was "MISSING IN ACTION" and no one could change the JOMSA and Convention information on the Home Page. I’ll fix this. Like I said…just force of habit. Here’s the link to the Cover and Index page: https://www.omsa.org/content/current-edition

    :D Doc

    I know that John. I have always wrote my impression of each issue and post the cover and Index Page with it. I do this so that a person can look back and see the issue I have wrote about.

    :D Doc
