Default Scottish Rifles - project

With many thanks to the forum members who helped with the research - I thought I'd share the finished frame for my Godson's 18th Birthday of his Great Grandfathers medals and insignia. Sadly only one medal ( Victory ) is original to John Bulloch - but I got replacements for the Star and War Medal to the same Regiment. The certificate is also a replacement - but look suitably impressive. I've also put together a 2 page summary of his war service which I've attached to the back of the frame and hopefully his story has been preserved for generations to come. Hope he likes it!
