Article section - Medals

-> Philip on March 04 2008
Due to the interest in maritime medals, the article categories have been tweaked slightly. The "Bravery" category has been renamed "Medals" and the few non-medal bravery tales have been moved to the "Life and Times" category.

If anyone has any articles, stories or any medal related information they think would be relevant, please sent them in using the "Submit Article" link on the left.
