Well I know when I got my Granby medal it was already engraved around the edge with my details???????
Maybe it was an ebay special?
Yes a very good thing as long as you engrave 'I am a ******* mong' on it.
If it's taken you 21 years to decide to ask on an internet forum whether or not to engrave a medal, will you take 21 years to implement whatever decision you (eventually) decide to make?
Some of mine are engraved, some aren't. Do I beat myself up over it? No!
I must be getting old and forgetful but I am sure that all medals come pre engraved
UN, NATO, and Jubilee medals don't. Some others too.
I lost my GSM so got a replacement. Didn't bother getting it engraved. Its mine, its not for anyone else. Who cares. Doubt anyone will grab it to read it. Never worn it anyway & don't intend to.
While we are on the subject, I have a minor medal predicament.
QDJM - I left the TA before picking mine up, apparently it was going to be forwarded on to me but this never happened. I was in the middle of moving house at the time and never bothered to chase it up. Anyway it appears that I may have accidentally joined up again (different mob this time) and I might need it. I contacted my old unit and they haven't a clue. I'm assuming it was left in a pigeon hole or something and got robbed/lost in the post/whatever.
So how does one apply for a replacement? Is it worth the hassle or should I just buy one off eBay for the eye watering sum of 14 quid? If I go down this route do I need to get it engraved? Are QDJMs engraved?
Quite frankly I'm not overly bothered but one doesn't want to be incorrectly dressed now does one?
Edited to add: Engraving question answered above. That saves some hassle.
If you've never signed for it or received it then contact the medal office
I lost my NDM a few years ago, Fally can I have it back now?
