    Hi Adrian,

    Look closely at the colour of the case, is it a very dark blue rather than black? It's just that I've found out that these type of cases were used for the Faithful Service Cross (don't know how many years service for I'm afraid) and were issued in a dark blue case. If you have one of these awards it should be a perfect fit.

    Possibly a black case could have been used too, as a differentiation of the years service for the award, but that's purely a guess.
    Hard to tell Ned, it looks black but look again and it could be blue! Has anyone seen a Faithful Service cross in an LDO case such as this? I have one in the usual red coloured box.........

    Looks like i was wrong Adrian , just thought it looked like an EK2 box
    That was my first thought Mark but it just won't fit!

    What is the material? Do you think it might have just shrunk with age?
    No shrinkage as far as I can tell Mo, the edges of the insert are still a tight fit to the box......

    Just a guess, the fire fighter's medal?

    No idea Tom, do these awards come in LDO cartons?

    I haven't tried a Schinkel to be fair but I still think the recess would be too small. I'll try it when I get home in the morning.

    Strange, it's come out back to front and upside down! But you'll sort it out.

    It's fairly compelling, has anyone out there got the Angolia book which describes this??

    That's only one of the great things about this forum!
    Congrats Adrian, if you don't have a service cross, I have one in the standard red box.

    wow. big ned! that's quite a pull. i would not have expected that, but it certainly looks compelling. i associate that shape with cross-shaped inserts in these LDO boxes and that looks like the case (forgive the unintentional pun) once again!

    Obviously there's no proof the box and cross started life together but the smaller recess gives it a chance!

    So has anyone seen another set consisting of an LDO box with an award other than an EK or KVK in it?

    That look's great!

    I've eventually found a linky thing to this award and case in Angolia's book that I was conking on about the other day, check it out:
