Conspicuous Gallantry Medal QV

Product Description
£79.00
Maximum quantity available reached.

Originally established in 1855 to reward naval gallantry in the Crimea. The original medals used the MSM with the words Meritorious Service removed and "Conspicuous Gallantry" engraved in their place.

Only 11 awards of this type were made and the medal fell into disuse.

It was revived for the Ashantee wars of 1874 and a new die was commissioned so the words Conspicuous Gallantry were now raised in the striking.

Originally the ribbon was three equal stripes of dark blue, white, dark blue but this was altered in 1921 to have a broad central white stripe with dark blue edges. Around 50 of this issue were awarded.

Our team of tailors work tirelessly to mount medals court or swing style to the exacting standards required by our British Armed Forces. 

  • Swing Mounting - medals are sewn onto a brooch bar and swing freely from the bar ready to wear. This method of mounting is typically used for mounting World War 1 & World War 2 medals.
  • Court Mounting - medals are sewn to a back board of corresponding ribbons with a pin brooch across top and held rigid so not to swing and hit against each other. This is the method of mounted adopted by todays armed forces.
  • StayBright - you can opt to have your medals coated with a stay bright coating to protect them from tarnishing.
