The court mounting of medals involves securing medals to a stiff backing board, along with the placement of a brooch fitting on the board. This ensures that the medals remain firmly in place and do not shift or move about while being worn.

It is mandatory for active members of the Australian Defence Force to have their medals court mounted, as it is considered the appropriate method of presenting military honours in a professional and respectful manner. By doing so, the medals are given proper recognition and are displayed in a neat and organized fashion.

The swing mounting of medals refers to the attachment of a medal to a ribbon that is allowed to hang freely from a brooch, which in turn is affixed to a uniform or clothing. This mounting style was commonly used for medals from the Boer War up to and including World War II, although there are no fixed guidelines or regulations regarding its use.

Ribbon bars are a compact and convenient way for military personnel to display their achievements and are often used in situations where a full-sized medal or award would be impractical.

    Wonderful

    Thank you Yaser Naseemso much for all the help you gave me with the purchas ing of the Africa Star & Defence Medals my father received for serving in Egypt during World War II. I am now able to supply each member of my family with a copy. They arrived at my place last Thursday, 9th May (on my birthday!) Without your help I’d still be struggling to organize them. I have been trying to organise my father's medals for the past 3 years. I tried to answer the Review via the code that was sent with the medals but was unable to do so (it’s my age). Take care, Jan Butler
