Military General Service Medal, 1793-1814 Featured Print

Military General Service Medal, 1793-1814

This medal was awarded to Captain G.J. Call in 1848, together with the clasp 'CUIDAD RODRIGO'. It is one of 17 campaign medals awarded to members of the Call family, now in the museum collection. The medals date from the Peninsular War (1807-1814) to the Great War (1914-1918). The Call family served with the Royal Irish Regiment, which until 1881 was known as the 18th Regiment of Foot. It was also known as the 18th (Royal Irish) Regiment of Foot and the 18th (The Royal Irish) Regiment of Foot. The regiment was disbanded in 1922. The medal, sometimes called the Peninsular Medal, was approved on 1st June 1847 as a retrospective award for various military actions from 1793-1814. Cuidad Rodrigo in Spain was a key border fortress during the Peninsular War, 1808-1814. It was the site of a 10 day siege by the Duke of Wellington and his troops in January 1812. Designed by William Wyon, the obverse of the circular silver medal bears the head of Queen Victoria with the inscription 'VICTORIA REGINA' 1848. The reverse depicts Queen Victoria placing a wreath on the head of the Duke of Wellington with the inscription 'TO THE BRITISH ARMY 1793-1814'. The rim is inscribed with the recipient's name, rank and regiment. The ribbon is crimson with vertical stripes of blue. TRURI : 1931.40.41

Welcome to the British Squadron to Japan Featured Print

Welcome to the British Squadron to Japan

Following the signing of the Anglo-Japanese Alliance of 1902 British Military contingents arrived in Japan. The Alliance was to run for five years before being renewed, was primarily directed against the potential shared menace posed, it was believed, by France and (most probably) Russia in the Far East. The alliance obligated either power to remain neutral if one or other found itself at war. However, should either power be obliged to fight a war against two or more powers, the other signatory was obliged to provide military aid. This postcard (produced by Mitsukoshi, Ltd. an international department store chain with headquarters in Tokyo, Japan) featuring a Japanese woman in a garden setting, is a celebration of the arrival of the British Squadron in July, 1906. Date: 1906
