The mini Military Medal


Recommended Posts

Hello Chris,

Never seen one like that before but I'd say you've come to the right conclusion.

Would a Frenchman wear the medal with the obverse as the King's head or do you think he'd prefer to show the more attractive reverse side.

That's a nice piece! Last year, I had to get some French miniatures for Patrick Churchill - ex-N? 4 Commando - from Arthus Bertrand and, of course, they are smaller than British miniatures so they were going to look a bit odd mounted with his British campaign stars and medals. Another veteran remembered having some French-made miniatures of British medals back in the 1950s but we couldn't find any. So we mounted his French awards together and he wore them under his British miniature medal bar.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
