The Orders and Medals Research Society is a UK-based society with a global membership, with the Hong Kong branch being the first overseas branch established in 1987.  

The society is dedicated to the research and collecting of orders, decorations and medals, in memory and honour of the original recipients.   See the website of the main society in the UK to find out more.

Details of membership can be obtained from the secretary who can be contacted at: secretary@omrs-hk.org

Anyone interested in the collecting or research of medals, or the history of civilian and military forces in general, is most welcome to attend: visitors please contact the secretary first.  Join our mailing list here to find out more.
