WWII medals - still available?

Grateful for any advice.

My father is 85 and served from June 1940 through to VJ day in India, but, very much in his own style, didn't collect his medals. Life moves on etc. Maddening I know! (NB: Suffolks, then RA, then back to inf., West Kents, Queen's Royal)

For Christmas I presented him with a framed painting from one of the actions he was intimately involved with, and now I'd love to obtain his medals and present.

Is it too late? If not, is there a fast route and what might be the necessary docs. Basically who, what, when and where and how?

Thanks in anticipation.
