Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  1. I'd just like to check the order for medal mounting queries -

    I've got to rehang my rack now that the QDJM has been awarded. At present it reads TELIC / HERRICK / VRSM.

    With the award of the QDJM, should it now read TELIC / HERRICK / QDJM / VRSM or TELIC / HERRICK / VRSM / QDJM?

    Grateful for a steer on this,
     
  2. I'm 90% sure jubilee medals come before long service medals. I await shooting down.
     
  3. Correct.
     
  4. Superb - thanks for the response.
