Journal ramblings of a quilter, wannabe art quilter and librarian.

With all the excitement of Tote & Gloat on Saturday, I almost forgot about something that arrived in the mail that day - my New Zealand Defence Service Medal. I applied for it a few months ago and knowing that there was quite a backlog, thought that I'd have to wait a while for it.
So here it is:
NZDSM - front view
NZDSM - reverse view
rank, name, number and Corps on the rim
I wasn't going to apply for it, but I did serve the 3 years (many years ago) and after doing the research on Grandpop, I figured that you never know how important it would be in the future.
