Couple of questions for maybe some of the older and bolder! The little lady is due shortly to receive her LS&GC (RAF) and I (Army and currently without LS&GC) am duly proud. Thing is she has been told that she needs a small strip of velcro sewing onto her No 1's above her ribbons, so that the medal can be attached when the presenting officer "presents" the medal! Is this normal practice? I believed that medals come with a quick fixing pin that allowed easy attachment. I am sure I have seen the Queen (God Save Her) physically attaching medals to recipients and not merely slapping them on! Is this an odd thing or should I get some time in and wind my neck in? If it is perfectly normal then how should it look (the velcro that is) ie Size/Position on the jacket. Regards Guys Jimima PS Apologies if that goes on a bit!
