1939-45 star and The War Medal 1939–1945 .
No engraving, just standard issue medals.
No monetary value as such but I'd just love to return them to the family.

If they are British or Victory Medals the name should be stamped round the rim , to find out if it is F or J

No 44, a few doors down but this looks likely, just need to find him or family.

I have some WWII medals that I would love to return to the rightful owner or
his descendants.

The name on the box is ( F or possibly J? ) Pinnock, 27 Lansdown Road, London E11

I have posted this up in the past and contacted some Pinnocks in the area but never managed to find any connections.
