Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. does the jubilee medal always go on the outside when you get them court mounted? also how many can you have in a line before you have to go onto a second row, i have six just now :?
     
  2. I think they are mounted in the order in which they were awarded? If you search there are plenty of other threads regarding this subject.
     
  3. They are not but I can't remamber what the order is except gallantry medals are always first.
     
  4. gallantry first, then op medals in order of presentation (dates), then jubilee, then LSGC
     
  5. so if you dont have an lsgc then it always goes on the outside, i wont get an lsgc so no need to worry about that lol :lol:
