Doubtless those in the "silent service" will be delighted to double their personal medal count amidst their 'port breast ironmongery'.

I've just received my Diamond Jubilee Medal. Compared to my other medal (an OSM) it's significantly smaller - was this the case with the Golden Jubilee medal or has someone decided to save money by making it a little smaller than normal medals? I thught all medals were of a "standard size" - can't help thinking this is going to look a little bit odd when it's made up...
Size isn't everything.

Maybe you're just bigger than when you received the OSM ?

As the only sensible person on this site I'll give a sensible answer. The golden jubilee medal is slightly smaller than my other ones (2 actually)......................I need a lie down!!

Both my golden and diamond are the same size which are smaller than campaign medals

Bore off, helmet. If you were a true matelot, you'd take the shit and deal with it with humour or facts, rather than crawl away in defeat. Having a bottle of "SBS brave juice" does not make you an internet warrior...
