As some of you to this page will be aware, military life stays with a family long after their service ends. It is a life long journey of pride, support for one another and a wider family than your own. I was directed to the Queens Own Hussar’s Facebook group after being made aware my Dad’s medals, cap and badge etc had been placed on eBay for sale.
After contacting Dad, he has regretfully had to sell as his life took a bad turn, and he had to give up his home and find money to pay bills. We really do want these medals back with our family where they belong- not lost in a collectors cabinet. It’s part of our family history, our memories, and our pride as we move forward with new additions to the family.
I have since spoken to my sister about the matter, and we respectfully and humbly appreciate any donations to this page to enable us to buy these back from eBAY. I would like to say, in advance, how overwhelmed I am by the offers of support so far, and by no means will you be forgotten to our family. In turn, I will stay in touch- and if anyone else needs support like we do now- I will be the first to offer.
Best wishes, and many many thanks
