Good Evening Gentlemen......

Just got this frame back from a local museum that I had loaded it to for one of their display's......

I broke the Plexiglas that I had and this is the first time that I have had a chance to get some photo's without the glare......

Thought I would share.....

Mike

Hello Mike,
A truly wonderful display.
Is it cloth based and did you do all the signage yourself?

A fantastic display of Queen's South Africa Medals.

I don't think I have seen a display of all 26 bars like this before, together with a bronze example. I assume that some of the recipients have interesting tales to tell..

Good Morning Paul and Thank You.....

Yes they are mounted on thick Navy Blue Cloth so that the colour of the backing board will not show through.....

Yes I did all of the signage..... The hard thing to find was a shadow box frame the size that could fit them all, I could have purchased one but the cost as excessive so I waited till I found one at a garage sale.....
