This is an exceptional book. I did debate with myself whether I could justify the cost, but there is so much information in this book that I have not seen in any other publication. Additionally, the production costs of this book must be high - there are almost 600 pages, the majority of which are illustrated with colour photographs of medals, insignia and documents.

It is limited to 1,500 copies, and I think almost 1,000 copies have been sold (at least mine was numbered in the high 900s) so not sure how long it will be available.

And a small point but might be important to some - this book only covers British medals and awards. It does not cover awards made by other nation participants in WW1

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable Source of Reference 22 Aug 2013
I obtained my copy from Lockdales Militaria auction a couple of months ago for a fraction of the price and with the addition of being signed by the author and numbered 1914. The next auction in September 2013 also has another copy up for grabs.....
As a collector of militaria and British medals & badges this publication is one of the best you can obtain for accurate and detailed description on the subject. Highly recommended and good luck if you decide to bid..
