Order of wear for medals

#1
Hi all - hopefully someone can help.

Got home today and grandaughter has been playing with medals and court mounting has come apart. As I am retired I need to go to civi tailor to get them done again but can't remember order. I have the following

GSM NI
LS&GC
Silver Jubilee medal
Golden Jubilee medal
UN medal for Former Yugoslavia


Any Ideas?

Thanks

I've found messdress.com very helpful for court mounting. They offer an excellent next day service.
Other tailors are available.

The three campaign medals in order of date awarded
QSJM
QGJM
LSGC
It's a small distinction, but the order of wear is actually in order of the date of qualification. It's not often that medals are awarded out of sync with qualification, but it does happen e.g. I know one chap who was awarded his Iraq Medal for Telic 2 a few years before he actually submitted a claim for, and was awarded, his South Atlantic Medal and GSM N.Ireland.

Agreed! A service that is second to none, and a very quick turnaround. Also, a very reasonable price too!

I'm sorry but i am going to stick my head out and say that i smell a rat here.

If you have had these five medals for this number of years, i find it hard to believe that you have forgotten the order of wear.

You should at least of remembered the patten of colours or the dates awarded.

I do hope that you are not a "Walt" trying to string a convincing set of gongs together.

If you are genuine (gulp) I will put my hands up and apologise ...... Fair ?

Perhaps I am going blind in my old age, but reading the original thread, I can only see two campaign medals, the GSM NI and UN Medal for the Former Yugoslavia. Can someone tell me what the third campaign medal is ?

how did you manage a QSJM as an OR? They were rarer than hen's teeth?

I was about to ask the same thing, wasn't it only the RSM and the youngest soldier in the regiment who got them (As ORs).

It seems to have been up to each Bn, but evidence shows they went to the CO, RSM and A.N.Other (as dictated by merit, age, ballot or sheer randomness).

eh?

you joined in 1970, by 1977 you would have served 7 years? even if you had joined as an apprentice you would have been at least 23?
The plot thickens.
