What's the best way of "cataloguing" our collection? do we type and few words with the name and regiment, or do we go in deepth and explane the story behind the soldier, starting with a front cover with a picture then pages, 1,2,3,4 etc, reasons behind a gallanrty award, MID, battles in which to took part???

Let post the way we each produce a story for our medals :D

A catalogue would be an index to your medal collection, presumably alphabetical by surname. The other kind of information you talk about above would surely constitute part of the collection itself.

I find simple Card Index Files Suitable For Recording My Collection On a Limited details Basis,ie: Name Of Awards {1914~15 Star Trio,Pair & Plaque,TFEM & Trio,Etc;},Recipient,Number Regiment MiC Data,Price & Place Purchased,Ideal Then As A Further Reference A Spring/Ring File With Full Recipient Details,With Full As Possible Research{MiC Copies/Medal Roll Copies/London Gazettes/War Badge/Service Papers/Photographs/Documentation/Etc;+ A Typed Detailed File On the Recipient & His Awards,Taken from The Assimilated Details from The Sources Quoted} ;)
