Mounting

There are two different methods of mounting medals, court mounting and swing mounting. Court mounting - medals are secured to a stiff backing which is pinned to the jacket. Swing mounting - medals are secured to a medal bar and allowed to swing naturally.

When we mount medals, we use all new ribbons and a hand-made broach with a life-time warranty. Medals will be cleaned and clear coated to prevent tarnishing if required, this is included in the cost of mounting, and there are no hidden costs.

Ribbon

We can supply full-size and miniature ribbon for all Commonwealth military medals, plus other NATO member countries, The Royal Canadian Legion, Ladies' Auxiliary, Cadet Corp., RCMP, Police Forces, all Province of Alberta medals, and on request other associations.

We also have WWI and WWII ribbon in stock, plus all other Canadian Campaign ribbon.

Miniature Medals

We carry stock of all miniature medals and miniature ribbons worn by Canadians, and foreign awards (British, American, and RCMP Jordanian).

Shadow Box

We mount medals for placement in a memory box using Velcro. We will also assist the customer in assembling their own personal memory box with suggestions on the placement of artifacts, photos, methods of securing items, etc. in their box.

Customers who choose a keepsake shadowbox will be passing down to future family members, a personal time capsule.


Jim Neathway

Born and raised in Petrolia, decease Ontario, I am the third generation to serve in the Canadian Military. My family background has given me a keen interest in militaria.

During my career of 23 years in the Armed Forces, I served as an armoured crewman with the following regiments: The Fort Garry Horse, The Lord Strathcona Horse (RC), and The Royal Canadian Dragoons. I also served as a mechanic with the 1st Service Battalion, 408 TAC HEL Squadron, and CFB Edmonton.

My tours of service included, two tours of Cyprus with the UN, one tour of Golan Heights with the UN, a two-year tour in Germany with the Nato Forces, and two tours of Alert, NWT. I was also posted to CFS Dana, CFB Calgary, and CFB Edmonton.

In 2001 my medals required remounting; I approached one of the retired Armed Forces tailors, and requested lessons in the art of medal mounting. After many weeks of instruction and practice, I formed Neathway Medal Mounting.

My goal in mounting your medals is to provide a professional product and high quality service.

I am a member of the following organizations:
