Although the majority of official military medals are made of metal and are therefore quite robust there are certain points of weakness.

Official General Service Medals, Campaign Medals and certain Long Service medals have a swivel suspension attaching the ribbon to the medal. Over time and a certain amount of rough handling the swivel point can become damaged. This is noticeable as the medal is harder to rotate about the swivel. Eventually the swivel breaks and the medal coin is then loose. The medal can be repaired by fitting a new suspension. Although the ability to rotate the medal is lost, the medal coin would be re-united with the suspension allowing the medal to be worn again. An Example is shown in the image to the right.

Another common medal repair is the replacement of the suspension rod or ring which allows the medal ribbon to be attached. These parts of the medal can become misshapen or break completely in this instance we can supply and fit a new rod or ring.

Other types of medal repair are available and the quickest way to find out if we can repair your medal is to send us some photographs and a description of the damage via email to [email protected]. We will take a look and call you or email you to discuss your medal repair options. If we are unable to repair the medal we will always try and offer good advice giving you all the options available.
