The strapline for Medal News magazine is really rather apt. ‘For the History of Heroes’ it proudly proclaims, and it is exactly right in saying that. There can’t be any object out there that is more personal, that is more tied to an individual’s actions and history than a medal awarded in battle or for some great and heroic achievement.
On the surface they may not seem all that much; a scrap of not necessarily precious metal, hanging from a ribbon. But it is what they represent, the symbolic importance of the medal that makes them so fascinating, so extra-ordinary and so personal. Every medal is awarded to someone for their actions, whether that be heroically saving someone’s life without care for your own, travelling to the Antarctic or some other act of bravery. The only gripe we have is with those commanders awarded an array of medals for conflicts they never actually took part in, but that is a small problem in reality. The medal represents the nation’s acknowledgment of a time when someone went above and beyond the call of duty, and that is why they are so valuable. To collect medals is to collect the history of those people who were rewarded with them, and as such it is something best done reverentially, with care and respect. NB
