Volunteer Reserve Service Medal

Recommended Posts

I have never seen a close-up scan of one of these. Is this an original strike? Are they really this plastic-looking and over-gilded? Setting aside the unfortunate though hilarious design, is the quality really THIS bad??

:angry:

They are indeed named. Initial issues were struck in the standard MoD impressed capital format, though recent issues are laser-etched with the recipient's details. The medals are struck from silver, as are the bars for five year increments of service.

The quality is not that bad, though please excuse fingerprints!

Interesting medal, thanks Tony. A shame She likes the Clown Crown look (or so 'tis said). She looks a bit less vulture-like here than on the miniature.
