    just sharing a quick update on this....I decided I needed to dress up the medal display and fill the space and settled on adding period cap badges....respective to the named unit on the medal and trying to stay period to the badge...finally received my first one and waiting on the other two...found a couple of nice sites in the UK(surprise) to order badges from....

    here's my first arrival...the 13th Hussars....quite happy with it
