MEDAL MOUNT­ING

Albany Extra - - Trades & Services -

Medal Mount­ing is a bit of an artis­tic process, one that re­quires the right equip­ment, at­ten­tion to de­tail and good knowl­edge. Luck­ily, Ron Hodg­son of Medal Spe­cial­ists has de­vel­oped that artis­tic flair and is able to pro­vide a pro­fes­sional Medal Mount­ing ser­vice in Albany meet­ing the high­est stan­dard.

While there are many ser­vice men and women with their own medals show­ing the strains of age, there are also many peo­ple in pos­ses­sion of fam­ily medals that are tucked away in boxes de­serv­ing special at­ten­tion. The trans­for­ma­tion takes place with medals be­ing cleaned; new rib­bons are se­lected be­fore sewing each medal onto its mount­ing bar. Pre­serv­ing these pre­cious com­men­da­tions and recog­ni­tions is an im­por­tant and re­spect­ful way of recog­nis­ing the ef­fort and sac­ri­fice taken to be awarded them. Ron feels priv­i­leged to be in­volved in this process.

Ron’s keen in­ter­est in war his­tory and medals has led him down the medal mount­ing path and he takes great pride in hav­ing the op­por­tu­nity to re­store oth­ers medals.

Medal Spe­cial­ists can sup­ply repli­cas to re­place miss­ing medals or can cre­ate com­plete ad­di­tional sets for fam­ily mem­bers; a won­der­ful idea for grand­chil­dren to honour their rel­a­tives by wear­ing their fam­ily medals on com­mem­o­ra­tive oc­ca­sions. Ron is able to source both full size and minia­ture repli­cas, com­plete with the cor­rect rib­bon to as­sem­ble on a wear­able pin mount­ing. All medals are hand stitched to their mount­ing with ex­cep­tional at­ten­tion to de­tail and are ready to wear or they can be placed in­side a dis­play case.

Ron is used to get­ting a lot of work by wordof-mouth as his clients are al­ways pleased. “When they get their medals back, they can’t quite be­lieve they look as amaz­ing as they do.”
