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.”
