Interested in Purchasing

We are always interested in purchasing Indian Army related original photographs, documents, and medals/decorations. In particular, photographs of the Indian Army on campaign in France, Palestine, East Africa, Mesopotamia, and the N.W.Frontier are of greatest interest. We are also interested in purchasing Great War era campaign medals and groups to Indian Army British Officers, Indian Officers, and researchable Indian Other Ranks. Although we have some medals for sale on this site, is not a dealer site, and the medals on offer are usually surplus from auction lots or other transactions and are largely sold at cost. Please feel free to contact us with anything you may have to offer.

Thank You.
