How it works


This 704 page volume is an essential requirement to medal collectors and students of military history, especially those who specialise in the Victorian period. It is the basic work on 19th century British campaigns and medals and its contents detail:

Medals of The Honourable East Africa Company.

Campaign Medals 1801-1891.

Notes on the Victoria Cross and recipients from its institution up to the South African Wars, 1877-1879.

Distinguished Service Medal

Long and Meritorious Service Medals, etc.

War Medals is a classic work, long unobtainable, and is now handsomely reprinted. The book is recognised as a precise and accurate account of the campaigns and actions it covers. Amongst its mass of detail is unique reference material such as lists of the British recipients of the French Military Medal and the Sardinian Medal for Valour awarded during the Crimean War, many of which carry citations.
