About the Author

Phil was born in Birmingham and grew up in a working-class environment typical of the area. His parents worked at the Austin, later British Leyland, and Cadburys, typical of so many families where he was raised. His lifelong interest in medals started at the age of nine with a rare trip out of the UK to Jersey where, with his father, he found a shop selling coins and medals. Phil was struck by the colours of three medal ribbons in the window, but they were 30 shillings and too expensive. On return home he visited the local library and began reading everything he could on the subject.In 1988 he started mounting medals and subsequently formed Worcestershire Medal Service with his first wife, to help support his new family. In 1986 he had started work on his first book For Distinguished Conduct in The Field and had been appointed Archivist of the Distinguished Cobduct Medal League. That book was followed by For Conspicuous Gallantry. Today his company is the UK's largest dedicated to the production and mounting of medals, and manufactures State Honours not only for the UK but a number of countries around the world. He has also worked closely with departments of the UK government on various projects, most notably the Elizabeth Cross.Thirty years after starting, he is still Archivist of The Gallantry Medallists' League, the present-day name of the DCM League, which now encompasses all holders of Level Two awards.Phil lives with his wife Jenny close to the town of Bromsgrove, which has been the home of his business since it was founded. He has three children Kerry, Katharyn and Jack.
