This listing is for our premium quality versions of the Defence Medal and 1939/45 War Medal. These reproductions differs from the standard medal we offer because;

1. The medals are cupro-nickel plated, just like the originals and not a zinc alloy like our standard listing. The weight is therefore closer to the originals

2. They are made by a British manufacturer who are approved by the Ministry of Defence. They are involved in the production of currently issued military medals.

3. The medals are die struck and not created using an injection mould. This process means that as well as perfect detailing, the contours of the medals are more sharp and clean cut.

4. It is as close to an original medal as you will be able to purchase, but will be as they were originally issued, not discoloured or weathered. These are reproductions of the full size medals.

The medals will be supplied with a suitable length of ribbon that is also British made and of better quality that some of the foreign made alternatives and again, made by one of the firms approved to make ribbon for current MoD medals. They are ideal to help create a tribute to a family member who served and saves having priceless originals on display for anyone to see. The replicas are also not attributed to another soldier, you can proudly call them your relative's 'own'. These medals were awarded to citizens of the British Commonwealth for both operational military service during World War II.
