Let’s see if anyone in the Bath area can help a Virtual Museum regular from further afield with some more information on two items he has in his possession with a real Odd Down connection.

Gary Whitley made contact with me by email and has enclosed two pictures of the two embellished and framed certificates he wants help with.

“The one to James E Tanner I bought from a second-hand shop in Kidderminster
about thirty years ago, it has the date 1939-1945 at the base (name and date
in red).

The other to Flt. Lt. Davies (name in gold with no initials and no date at
base) I bought from an antique fair in Stratford-on-Avon about two years
ago.

Any information would be much appreciated.”

Do let me know if you have information and l will pass it on to Gary.
