    • I always have a good supply of airmail items, ranging from first flights to email rate letters and aerograms.
      Unfortunately, my shop is closed at the moment due to a break-in and subsequent inventory check.
      Talk to you soon, Tony
      Best regards

  1. A Chara, I have my Granddad, Gay Byrne’s comrade medal 1918-22 plus his military pension service cert.- 1943. He was in 6th Batt. Dublin Brigade and saw active service (I have clippings). He was Dev’s driver for a while during struggle against Free State treason. I also have his internment order – 1923 – under emergency powers.(he was in the Curragh)
    I would like to put his contribution on the record – he was the greatest influence on my life. My paternal Granddad, Maurice Tobin, a Dun Laoghaire fishmonger, was a Stater and big buddy with Piaras Beaslai.
    I am also in process of insuring household and would like to know if medal has any monetary value. We are all from Dun Laoghaire and Monkstown, although I live among the English here in Norwich.and thus need to contact this way.
    If there is a phone number at all – I will use it.
    All the best,
    Peter Tobin
