A customer asked Fastframe to update the framing of her father’s medals. He was a Band Sergeant Major in the Scots Guards who was awarded the B.E.M. (British Empire Medal). Unfortunately, the medals were in poor condition, so we asked David Hirsh our expert Medalist for assistance. David cleaned the medals, renewed the ribbons and court mounted them, bringing the medals back to their original condition, befitting a Sergeant Major.
In addition, our customer’s mother served as a Plane Spotter, which was also an important role in World War II.
As a tribute to both of her parents, we worked with the customer to design a frame that included a picture of her mother and father and their medals.
The photos needed restoration, resizing and reprinting.
Our customer opted to use UltraView anti reflective glass, which highlighted and enhanced the images and medals, making a great tribute to the customer’s mother and father.
