Dickie Owen Played Corporal Schiess (Zulu) who has sadly passed away on Tuesday the 7th April 2015
Fri Apr 10, 2015 11:14 pm by ADMIN
Very sad news - my great friend and Zulu actor Dickie Owen passed away on Tuesday night - I have just spoken to his carer who confirmed it. Ironic really - when I spoke to Dickie on Tuesday at lunchtime to tell him I was forwarding fan mail to him, he said he was feeling absolutely fine (and he sounded it). He was a lovely man, very humble, and was really surprised at the amount of people who queued to meet him at our Hammer day signing in November in Westminster - we met fans from all over …

Sir Reginald Coupland
Mon Mar 31, 2014 2:25 pm by Frank Allewell
Sir Reginald Coupland in his book: 'Zulu Battle Piece.' Written in 1940 there are a number of photographs. Does anyone know if these photos are still around? In the book they are not that clear and it would of immense value to get digital copies.
JY / Isandula, any ideas?

I thought he should have a thread as well, given his great esteem. He just announced his retirement from acting due to Parkinson's disease. A real tragedy. He was fairly unknown when he did Zulu Dawn, but in my opinion, he was the …

PostSubject: 30 Year Comparison of medal prices: Zulu War medals over-priced?   Mon Feb 21, 2011 9:35 pm

Looking back at medal prices 1980 - 1982 in old catalogues, a RD/iSandlwana medal back then would have cost £300 - £330 (no distinction between a RD defender or an iSandlwana casualty, and this just a 50% premium on a standard Zulu medal).
To put this in perspective, a RD/iSandlwana medal would have cost the same as a standard 3 bar Indian Mutiny (not an original Lucknow defender), the same as a 5 bar 1882 Egypt medal, the same as a Thin Red Line medal to the 93rd at Balaklava and the same as an Ava or Bhurtpoor bar to an Army of India medal.
A third of the price of a Light Brigade Charger.
Half of a Trafalgar bar NGSM.
Twice that of an average Waterloo medal.


Since then and over the past 30 years, in order of least to largest increase in value, if you had invested in a standard medal for:

Army of India (Ava or Bhurtpoor) it would have increased in value by approximately,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,3x
Queens Sudan, Boer War pair,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,4x
Military or Naval GSM 1793, Egypt 1882 (5 bar or Abu Klea) ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,5x
Waterloo,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,8x
Trafalgar Naval GSM,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,10x
RD/iSandlwana,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,25x
???????,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,100x

Special prize if you know 100x increase! (Hint: needs to be verified with documentation and in its standard group)

30 years ago, you could have got a xxxxxxx for £100.

Anyone got a time machine?

With the price of SAG medals still increasing dramatically, I am revising this old comparison.
Seem to be more medal collectors on this site than when I originally posted, so I have deleted the answer to the question I posed in the original thread, so if you have already seen the answer, you are not allowed to spoil the fun of the newer medal collecting members!
