MID query

If a soldier was MID more than once, would he still only wear one oakleaf?

Simple answer - yes.

The VC recipient I'm researching was MID 3 times, but his Victory Medal only holds one emblem.

Only one MiD emblem worn on the Victory Medal,regardless of he number of times "Mentioned",however if later MiD in Campaigns between 12th November 1918 ~ 10th August 1920,a retrospective A/O 109 of September 1947,granted the wearing of the 1920 multi leaf Oak Spray Emblem on any additionally awarded Campaign Medal{eg:GSM for Iraq,North West Persia;South Persia,Kurdistan;IGS for Waziristan 1919~20;Mashud,Afghanistan NWF.1919,etc;}If MiD for a campaign during this time period for which a Campaign Medal was not authorised then the MiD Emblem would be worn directly on the Coat,after Medals.

For Campaigns after August 10th 1920 the same A/O 109 authorised the wearing of the 1943 Single Leaf Emblem on the respective Medal{eg later issues of IGS,GSM,NGS,etc;}again if no medal was awarded the Oak Leaf emblem is worn on the Coat after Medals.

The MiD Certificate was instituted first in 1919,followed by the Multi Oak Leaf Emblem in 1920,as the Certificate was not though wholly satisfactory
