Frequently Asked Questions

Do you mount full size medals?

Unfortunately, at this time we do not offer this service.

What is Court Mounting?

Court mounting is a style of mounting where the medals are sewn onto a backing board to prevent the medals from 'jingling' around and is a requirement of the British Army's dress code. This type of mounting dates back to the reign of Queen Victoria.

Do you do Swing Mounting?

This style of mounting is only recommended for currently serving Royal Navy units including the Royal Marines. Court mounting is a safer and more secure method for wearing medals and is recommended for all British Army regiments. If you require your medals Swing Mounted please let us know.

Can you add my new miniature medal to my existing mounted medals?

Yes, although your medals need to be mounted as a full set you can submit an order for the re-mounting of your existing miniatures and add any new medals to be included and we will mount them all as a new set.
