Hi folks, I'm submitting this thread as a favour for cookiemonster as he's a bit of a luddite when it comes to posting pictures! He'll follow up soon with more detail of the medals.
Anyway, he's asked if I'd submit Jimmy Smith's medals won whilst at The Rangers:

Let's put it this way, his golfing skills are better than his computing skills so now you know why I had to post the pictures! :D

On a similarly serious note, if those medals were mine, any museum (imaginary or otherwise) would have to pry them from my cold, dead hands.
