Keith Payne VC


Recommended Posts

I was casting about for something else and came across this shot of Keith Payne. :speechless1:

I have met the man in person when he visited the Senior Sailors Mess at HMAS Cerberus. He wasn't wearing his full issue of medals, and I don't blame. You would need a broomstick to mount that on!

When he does wear them... HOW? Does he have someone run alongside holding up one end, overlap or 3-4 rows? Even overlapped they must run for over a foot!

They are very closely overlapped, obviously the above medals are for display at the Maryborough Military Museum.
