Shown in the photographs is the presentation of the MSM to Larry Stewart of the Arizona Branch, social distancing prevented a group photo, but we had 12 members in attendance. Larry was appreciative and gave a nice speech afterwards. He received the medal for services to medal collecting and research and as Secretary of the Arizona branch of the society.

There is a new OMRS publication available now, click below to find out more:
Our Society exists to promote a general interest in the study of orders, decorations and medals and to actively encourage and publish research into all aspects of civil and military medals, with a particular focus on those issued by Great Britain and the Commonwealth countries.
Members’ interests range from awards for gallantry in battle, or bravery in saving life, through forgotten wars and far-flung campaigns, to long and meritorious public service away from the limelight. Research interests stretch from pure numismatics, through the military or social history surrounding the circumstances of awards, to the genealogy of the medal recipient.
