Came across this lot on Ebay. Never seen a Police LSGC medal with oak leaves before? Has anyone else ever come across this phenomenon?

The regular Police Long Service Medal was instituted in 1951....this is a George V medal and he died in 1936....so this is probably related to something else, I think the special constabulary....not a medal enthusiast so cannot comment with authority.  Steve

Yes it's definitely the Special Constabulary Long Service Medal, but I've never come across one with a Mentioned in Dispatches oak leaf on before?

If you go to the Scottish Police Medals web site...it is mentioned on there.
