medal mounting possibly not right any help?

#1
heres a random question i had my medals mounted and just picked them up last night but they seemed to be really squashed together so as they dont sit right is this norma as my OSM has a bar which pushes against the telic medal making it sit a little odd and not lying verticle is this just the way it is or is it fixable?

Sounds like a pants job. How many do you have? If it's over a certain amount (5 I think?) then they sometimes overlap slightly.

I believe that after six medals they are overlapped. Yes it does look Sh#t when there overlapped, I have 8 and they look terrible overlapped however I suppose if they were next to each other then I would look like Kenny Everet :p

No, your medals are fine. If two clasps are side by side there's nothing the tailoress can do about it unless they are moveable clasps (such as NATO medals).

One of the reasons the defence medal was awarded was if you were in a postion in the uk that was bombed. my grandad was for a time on anti aircraft guns in east anglia so that is why he awarded it.

hpe that helps

Hello EE,
Something wrong with the pic.
He appears to be wearing the following WW2 campaign medals:
1939/45 Star, Atlantic Star, Africa Star, Burma Star with PACIFIC Clasp, France and Germany Star and War Medal with MID emblem.
The problem is that the F & G Star was never awarded if an Atlantic Star had been previously awarded. A FRANCE AND GERMANY Clasp was issued for attachment to the Atlantic Star instead.

I thought it was all to do with "gifts" from foreign nations for example Philip has been "awarded" the Order of the Rising Sun from Afghanistan! lol!
