LDO box.....

Article about: Schinkel EK? Or a police long service medal?

    Default LDO box.....

    This one arrived today containing a Minesweeper badge. You can clearly see the badge has been with the box for a long time but you can also tell the box was not intended for this award.

    I've tried an EK and a KVK in the box but they're both larger than the indentation by some margin, neither sit in the recess.

    So, any other ideas as to what the box might have been made for?

    hard to say without it in hand but i believe i've seen boxes with this kind of recess with EKIIs. but you say you have tried this?

    it's frustrating because i have recently seen this box with the award in it. i can not remember where i was, but i believe the medal in the box was an EKII?

    wish i could do better, Adrian. maybe i will look around if no one else solves the puzzle. i know i have seen this box.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Yep, tried an EK2 and a KVK2 and neither fitted, and I mean really didn't fit. The awards are a good 5mm too big for the recess and sat up on the edges.
    I was sure it was for one of these medals but I'm at a loss now.

    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.

    Here's a couple of pics with an EK2 in the box. As you can tell, there is no way this is fitting in there. Compare to the examples Ned and Mark have posted.

    What is the material? Do you think it might have just shrunk with age?
