Car Boot Treasure...

Yesterday as already stated was a great buying day...came across a chap selling this group of medals, to a Signalman J.Spalding, of the Royal Signals..no 2322142,c/w his GSM from Palestine, I know that he served in Africa and Europe as well, but no other clues...

Anyone have any idea when this could date to?? I looked him up on Military Records, ( bare bones website) and came across this on him....

 

That states an "Incident" in 1940...1699619784_Spaldingmedals.thumb.jpg.ec6926cd2c983788b8d79efd447f033a.jpg

Nice grouping of medals. 

Thanks Mike...seemingly, the Palestine GSM, was awarded for service in the Palestine Uprising from 1936 to 39....I was originally after , but didnt realise at the time, a Palestine 45-48 medal....my uncle was there with the Paras during that period...:)
