I have noticed there is such a medal. All be it commerative one. A friend of mine wears it, his sole medal and on the left side. I know we should wear this on the right as commerative. Does anyone else bother wearing there's or have they bothered to purchase it?

Mike I like the way you have included the RAOC motto, it was that which led me to the fact that one of my many bothers was RAOC. I can remember around 1955 there was a plaque on the wall at my mothers house, at the time when I read the TONANTI part I thought it must be something to do with that brother (his name being Tony (Anthony)) turned out it was his but not for the reason I thought Laughing

Another thing, it would be cheaper to get the chocolate "Gold Coins" from Lidl, and just add ribbon, could have a whole row of medals, very cheap Laughing
