After years of looking out for my relative's ZW medal (in vain), I've decided to buy a replica. Does anyone know of a reliable, good quality producer in the UK who will add the name, regt and no.?
I don't want a tacky repro. I want something that looks and feels like the real thing.

Hi julian.

There is a seller on ebay called Army and Navy Stores, I recently contacted him to enquire if the SAGS replica medals he had on his site swiveled and turned like the original. He replied and told me that they did. I therefor ordered one to put into a display case with photo's of Lt Bromhead V.C. Col Sgt Bourne D.C.M. and Pte Hook V.C. also showing their medals. I was really pleased with the medal, it is a very good copy. I put it in the display case along with the other medals, and I took a photo of it and I recently sent a copy of the photo to Gary (90th), he said it was excellent. If I knew how to put a photo on here I would do, so that you could see the quality of the SAGS medal I recently bought on ebay. However, if you go on ebay, look for the seller called Army and Navy Stores, and make an enquiry about the medal. The medals was only £18, but the quality is very good.

Hope this helps.

Martin.

Thanks. I'll look into it. What metal was used for the replica medal?

Martin, a photo would be useful, thanks.
I've been in touch with the company - nickel silver is the metal and it doesn't do engraving.

Hi Julian

I believe it is not allowed for replica's to be produced with name, rank and number. I believe only originals can be as such.

Regards

Upon enquiry I know that that's not quite right. Diamond-tipped engraving is allowed on the rim of replicas; MoD originals are always impressed on the rim. That's the difference.

And yes, they can be engraved with name, rank, number but only in the way that I've indicated. Look at the website of Worcestershire Medal Services Ltd.

Hi Julian

I visited the site but could not find what you referred me to.

This site says otherwise. Only awarded medals can been engraved.

Hi Eddie
Look at https://worcmedals.com/full-size-medals-and-emblems-campaign-medals-1799-1899/South-Africa-Medal--no-clasp where clients can 'build' their medals. You'll see it includes naming.

However, it is illegal to wear medals to which you are not entitled, unless they were awarded to an ancestor (in which case they should be worn on the right breast).

I have now ordered it and await delivery. Forum members have been so helpful both on the thread and through pm-ing. I'm very grateful. Both my ancestor's young infant children died in South Africa, I believe. I think the original medal must have been sold off for its silver content by his widow when she got back to England. A case of needs must perhaps.

I have now received the replica medal from Worcestershire Medal Services Ltd., engraved, swing mounted, and excellent in every respect. They were helpful and kept me fully informed throughout. I would thoroughly recommend them.
