Engraving - Foxhole Medals

Medal Entitlements

War medals and their associated eligibility criteria are complicated.
Whether you’ve got your ancestor’s original medals in your possession, or you’ve heard the stories and want to get a matching set of replicas to honour your family, Foxhole Medals can help you feel confident that you have a correct and up-to-date set of everything they are entitled to.

Entitlement verification process


We collect key information about you or your ancestor to start.


Our team researches the supplied credentials against public records & our subscribed databases.


We verify the awards you / your ancestor is entitled to & provide with a list of confirmed awards.

How criteria changes

War medals and their associated eligibility criteria are complicated. For example, did you know that:

- for World War I, the 1914-15 Star was only ever issued to those who began active
service – not to be confused with their enlistment date – on or before 31 December
1915. We can help you make sure you have the correct medals for your WWI ancestor;

- the Australian government made retrospectively changes to World War II medal
eligibility in 1995, 1996, and again in 2001.

We can make sure you have all of the medals your ancestor is entitled to.

Having struggled to find out what medals my grandfather received, they did all the research with minimum information and were not only able to find him, his service record and the medals that he received but also details on his words received. Really amazing. Communication was quick and efficient. Highly recommend.

Shannon and Jimmy are a rarity in business these days: they truly care about the customer, love their work and want to ensure the best service and product possible. In my case, this included great communication through telephone calls and emails, double checking all requirements, and perhaps best of all, some additional research to help me fill in some gaps regarding my late grandfather's military service. All with a positive attitude, nothing too much trouble and prompt response to queries. And the medal mounting and engraving (original and replicas) is stunning. I cannot recommend Foxhole highly enough!

The package just arrived. Shannon did an exceptional job researching my cousin's entitlements and then guiding me through the process. The medals are top quality, well presented and the service was very professional. Highly recommend Foxhole Medals, especially Shannon. Thank you.
