    Medal Mounting

    Post by mk1rceme on Thu Dec 15, 2011 4:19 pm

    Does anyone know of a good medal guy around the Red Deer or Calgary area that does court mounting? Have three sets that I would like done up.

    Thanks

    I have a friend in Toronto that does them! LOL
    He had a guy drop off some medals in his outdoor mailbox for him to mount. When he got home from work, he found the medals and took them inside. When he opened the box he found a Crimean Victoria Cross!!!! I asked him what he did with it, he said he mounted them and had the guy come right away and pick them up.

    Yeesh! That guy was lucky they didn't grow legs and walk away.

    Mounting actually doesn't look that hard to do...if I had someone show me how to do it once or twice I would probably take the projects on myself. Getting all the ribbon I would need would be the biggest challenge. I have two common fives and my Grandfathers 6 medal set to do.

    Should mention that I've asked at the local Legions and no one has a clue. Looks like I may have to take a trip up to Edmonton to get them done. So far all the mounters in Alberta seem to be in the Edmonton area.
