This is a super collection. You will also see books, maps and other items regarding the era on out 2 sites. We also have an extensive collection of Illustrated London News and The Graphic which cover this period.
There were only 7 clasps issued for this medal. This collection covers 5 of those. We are looking to complete the set by finding medals which have the Samana and Waziristan clasps. Please let us know if you have any.
