What a botched up job. Wear them once in the rain and all you will have is a gooey mess and ruined medal mount.
Worth having a read of Army Dress Regulations (All Ranks) – Methods of Court Mounting, Full Size Medals. "The Medal is suspended from a ribbon so as to allow the centre of a round Medal to be cut in half by the backing, ie the nose of the impression of a sovereign’s head on a Medal should rest on the bottom edge of the backing. The overall length of a suspended Medal will be 88.9 mm
Best way to NOT mount medals 😬
I hate the use of glue, a proper job would require the use of a sewing machine. Why go to all that effort to make the board?
First parade and they end up on the floor there is reasons why things are done. Tailors do them properly it may cost money but hey you don't decide a pair of shoes are to expensive so I will make my own.
love the music too…
what a mess
now show how to mount more than five medals ha ha ha…. wouldn't it be easier just to use plastic instead of using fake buckram.
stars hang to low
Thanks MrBrandyHarris Very interesting, just what I needed. My G/fathers Boer war, and WW1 medals went missing many years ago. After having researched his army service from 1891 to 1919, I have been able find his awards. I have obtained replica's, so with your/this video tip I will be able to mount them properly to a professional looking display. And wear them, as well as my own on remembrance day.
A very big THANK YOU.
