    Me too Steve! Thanks for your comments.

    I would always have said these awards are my least favourite but I got one in hand and they are just lovely !

    I need one now without swords

    They look good Nick, I never had any parade mounted medals but they do look the part and shows that extra something when the owners made the effort to get them done.

    Jerry

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    These are great example Nick! Is the ribbon is faded on the Next of Kin award? It might be the 'orange' type ribbon we sometimes see. Can you take a look on the back, under the red felt and see what the colour is there?

    Could be Adrian ! As soon as I get them in hand I will check !

    Certainly a different colour to my other NOK example

    Hi Adrian, just looked under the red felt and it is the same faded colour as the rest of the ribbon

    Thanks for looking Nick. I guess the orange/red colour is the original colour then!
