help on medals mounting

#1
Any one know the NSN or where I can get hold of some Buckram (sp)? It is used in mounting medals. Also can any one tell me the correct dimensions for mounted medals i.e. the length from top bottom of the finished article.

Many Thanx

Edited my post to say;

1. Buckram can be bought at sewing shops.

2. Rather than my waffling on about how I did mine, here is the 'chapter and verse':

13.015 Method of Court Mounting Full Size Medals. A backing of buckram 69.85 mm deep by width required, depending on the number of Medals. Medal ribbons should be placed side by side up to and including a quantity of 6 Medals unless the width of these 6 medals extends past the left shoulder seam of the uniform. In this instance, the 6 medals may be overlapped. 7 or more court mounted medals should always be overlapped with the senior ribbons nearest the centre of the chest being left fully exposed. The overlap of ribbons will vary depending on the number of Medals worn and the size of the individual’s chest. At no time should more than two-thirds of any ribbon be covered by another; the overlap of each ribbon should be equal. The Medal is suspended from a ribbon so as to allow the centre of a round Medal to be cut in half by the backing, ie the nose of the impression of a sovereign’s head on a Medal should rest on the bottom edge of the backing. The overall length of a suspended Medal will be 88.9 mm. No Medal should be suspended from less than 31.74 mm of Medal riband; in the case of a larger Order, Decoration or Medal, the backing may be increased to 76.2 mm depth to allow a minimum of 31.74 mm of riband suspending the Medal. A standard issue Medal brooch should be sewn to the back of the buckram. The back overall should be covered by a black face cloth or doeskin, with the exception of the Guards Division, whose Medals are backed with scarlet. Medals are sewn down with a neutral coloured thread. When mounted, the bottom edges of the Medals, regardless of their size, should be level.

Opening a old topic i know, but i have been looking all over SCOC and can only find cloth burlap and not buckram.
was wondering if you ever came across the NSN at all?
