NOTICE:  In Mid September 2010, six groups of medals I was sending for mounting went missing in transit.   I would be very grateful for any information that might lead to the recovery of these medals.  They are the medals of serving personnel of the Irish Defence Forces and the groups include Service, Peacekeeper, United Nations, EUFOR and NATO medals.  I can give exact details about these groups if requested.

NOTICE:  07 May 2006:-

This is an information message for all collectors of Irish badges.
Some of you will be aware of the two posters produced by the Defence Forces Magazine "An Cosantoir" showing the Flashes of the PDF Units and the Reserve Units. 
I must warn you that these posters are not totally accurate when it comes to the actual badges. 
RESERVE:- When compared to the poster a lot of the actual reserve badges have a colour difference.  The blue colour on the poster is actually navy blue on the badge and the green became a lime green for the MPs
PDF:- The PDF poster is misleading because some of the badges are close to but not the actual unit design, all are smaller in size.
