The heart of the site is the forum area, including:
A quick question, is it illegal to sell the Victoria Cross medal, In anyway, shape or form?
No, not strictly, it is your property.
Well, I meant an online shop, selling replicas....
Come on, Johnson, surely that biography made you a few bob?
And look at the 'Customers who bought this product also purchased...' section.
Oh dear. Site is a walt's retail paradise.
LOL like the reply poison dwarf..
But back to the question, no it is not illegal to sell a copy, though wearing one not earned will prob get the sh1t kicked out of you.
Aren't replicas supposed to replicate the original?
Ah, Henry Du Bora, full-on waltfest shop
He does do a good line in berets though and they are much more comfortable than the issue ones.
To a person of limited means who collects medals, these are a far cheaper version to purchase as a representative of the medal. Most medal collectors would never be able to afford a real one. As long as they do not try to pass them off as a real one and do not wear them, I see no problem. There are copies made now of all the medals and awards.
And there is no problem with that intothesilk2, however, a serious collector would never buy that particular copy - it's gold ffs , and looks absolutely nothing like an origibal !
No that is a walt shop for walts ran by walts.
Its used by quite a few Aldershot 'residents', especially for selling kit to at the end of a month when the pay check has run out.
