Just re-reading the family history thread and I went and pondered the medal cases. My Great-grandfather's medals and his father's medals cover some significant periods of service. I know a lot of people have served 30+ years but does anyone have a rack to compare to this one in that a single person accrued medals (not just service) covering such a long period. For example I have a few medals "won" over 4 years but more than three times as much service but my grandfather "won" 9 medals in 4 years. My great-grandfather's medals are: MBE, 1914 Star and Bar, British War Medal, Victory Medal, Defence Medal, War Medal 1939-45, Jubilee Medal 1935, Coronation Medal 1937, Coronation Medal 1953 and LS&GC (George V). So medals from 1914 to 1953 - 39 years (and bearing in mind he was a Serjeant in 1914, a bit of service before that too!).
