A Medal Sew Rare

Queen Mary’s Needlework Guild played a crucial role in WWI, providing essential garments and supplies to soldiers. Among their contributions was the Rose and Monogram War Service Medal, typically featuring a smaller Q.M.N.G. enamel hanger. This medal symbolizes the immense efforts of volunteers during the war.

While the standard Rose and Monogram War Service Medal is common, the dated war service bars are much rarer. These bars were awarded for specific periods of service. The Surgical Branch bar is the rarest, making it a prized possession for any collector.

Early postcards of a young Queen Mary add to the allure of these medals. Mary was famously known during WWI for the Christmas tin she arranged for every serviceman. These postcards offer a personal glimpse into the era and the woman behind these significant wartime contributions.

For collectors, the thrill of discovering history is unparalleled. Charing Cross Market offers a treasure trove of such items. Whether you’re a seasoned collector or just starting, the market is a must-visit destination. You might walk away with a rare war service medal or a cherished postcard of Queen Mary herself.
