Medal Polishing

I took my late father's medals out of their cabinet this morning in order to polish them. I had the miniature ones re-mounted several years ago; and these are the ones I occasionally wear at Remembrance ceremonies.
You are supposed to wear full-size medals with overcoat or lounge suit!, I hear you exclaim; which is correct. However, it is not so important because they weren't awarded to me and I wear them on the right-hand side.

I think miniature medals and decorations are only meant to be worn with dinner jackets, mess dress or full evening dress.

The CVO - Commander of the Royal Victorian Order - in the cabinet belonged to another ancestor.
