Military Medal Replica
The Military Medal was awarded to personnel of the British Armed Forces, and to personnel of other Commonwealth countries, below commissioned rank, for bravery in battle on land. The award was established in 1916, with retrospective application to 1914, with over 115,000 being awarded during the First World War alone. The award was discontinued in 1993 when it was replaced by the Military Cross. You have the uncrowned bust of George V on one side and on the reverse the crowned cipher of George V with the words FOR BRAVERY IN THE FIELD beneath, all surrounded by a wreath and suspended from a red, white and blue ribbon. The originals were struck in silver. These superbly produced replicas are struck in cupro-nickel and stamped COPY but look and feel just like the real thing. This is the first time we have been able to get a supply of these medals and at this price, they are sure to be popular as even the cheapest original would cost around £500 these days.
