Default New member (medal collection help)

Afternoon folks,

I've taken possession of my Grandads life long medal collection in the last few weeks and to be honest I'm out my depth.

While some is catalogued and some has been mounted for display its a minefield that I've never been involved with before.

I'm hoping I've landed in the best place for help picking through the collection.

Can you help me with the best part of the forum to post pictures for you to identify for me the ones not labelled?

Anyways look forward to being part of this community for the the foreseeable.

I think it would be best if you join the British Medals Forum:
Good Luck in your research,

Is it a collection of medals as shown in the first photo? Or a collection of badges as in the second photo? Or a mix of both?
