The Conspicuous Gallantry Medal GV.åÊThe first world war saw the greatest number of CGMs awarded (110) and the only bar ever awarded to the CGM was awarded to Arthur Robert Blore who had been awarded the CGM in Gallipoli and his bar in France.åÊ

In 1921 the ribbon of the CGM was changed to have a broad central white stripe with dark blue edges, this helped distinguish it from the DSC when ribbons alone were being worn.

No bars were awarded to the CGM during the reign of King George VI.

Our team of tailors work tirelessly to mount medals court or swing style to the exacting standards required by our British Armed Forces. 

  • Swing Mounting - medals are sewn onto a brooch bar and swing freely from the bar ready to wear. This method of mounting is typically used for mounting World War 1 & World War 2 medals.
  • Court Mounting - medals are sewn to a back board of corresponding ribbons with a pin brooch across top and held rigid so not to swing and hit against each other. This is the method of mounted adopted by todays armed forces.
  • StayBright - you can opt to have your medals coated with a stay bright coating to protect them from tarnishing.
