    As for the silver dipping thing, how does that work with cheapo non-shiny Balkans medals?
  10. Clearly living up to your name mentalist! They obviously only dip the silver badger's, unless this is a chaep Waaaahhhhhh?
  11. CHEAP. Before you start on the typing error.
  12. For GSM/CSM , OSM , ACSM, GULF ect. Goddards Silver dip £2.70 Tesco this brings a really good shine in seconds,The Iraq medal use a metal polish which isn't abrasive- DIY.
    Don't do your NATO medals they'll not last long, Don't use Brasso on your medals either!
  13. Anyone in the Portsmouth Area, the tailoress in HMS Nelson will mount full size medals for free. For some reason the Navy have to pay, but the Army doesn't.
  14. The only thing I will say is that I have had to mount medals for people who had previously sent theirs to mess dress and from what i recall they had either glue or double sided sticky tape on the back of the ribbon. I can't re-use the ribbons after that. Plus sometimes the glue shows through lighter coloured ribbons.

    £4 or £5 pounds sounds very reasonable, but, I suppose you get what you pay for.

    I sew all mine, no glue needed.
