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.
