    Default 1945 Distinguished Service Medal (but awarded by who ???)

    Hi folks, saw this medal in an Antiques shop today, thinking of buying it but im unsure who it was awarded by. Cost is 12.

    At the bottom of the medal it says A.A.C (what unit or organisation was this?).
    On the reverse side the name on the back is Mrs R Mountain.

    I await your expert advice

    HI , i think this award is for distinguished service in connection with the association of conservative clubs, private civiian and not a military award. at one time i had a 5year version of this award as part of ww1 set of awards .the 5 year version was on a blue ribbon. seems a good buy at 12.....cheers paul

    I think Paul is correct.

    It is definitely not a military award...............!

    I didn't think so, I was thinking Army Catering Corps or something similar.

    Cheers for the help guys.
