    I recently bought Pip, Squeak and Wilfred replicas engraved with my great uncles name and regimental information. I cannot fault the quality of the items and was well satisfied with the speed of return.

    I bought this medal as part of a Pip, Squeak & Wilfred set engraved with my wife’s grandfather’s details. We are both very impressed with the quality of the medal, the speedy delivery and the help received in getting the engraving as accurate as possible, and would not hesitate in recommending Bigbury to anyone. We are both very happy with this medal and it will help us remember a hero we never had the privilege of meeting.

    Regards
    Pete
