    Hi CK I was there in the Summer and that is one of the best displays of medals I have ever seen in a museum.

    Was particularly interested in this set of medals to a namesake of mine.

    And I loved the painting at the front of the museum.

    Wonderful images there Deacs. That's many thousands of pounds worth of medals in that display. Wouldn't mind a few minutes in there to take a good look. Oh! and a glass cutter too probably.

    Mike,
    I know that many medal collectors feel that presenting row upon row is rather dull, but I don't agree. Perhaps I'm too much like a kid in a chocolate factory when it comes to this topic. :)
