THE BURMA MEDAL
A very seldom seen award from the reign of George IV.
Un-named as issued. Granted to native officers and men who participated in the campaign for the subjugation of Burma. This was the 1st of the H.E.I.C. campaign medals in what was to become a standard 1.5 inch (38mm) diameter. The medal was fitted with a large steel clip and ring for suspension (just like the Waterloo Medal). British troops in this campaign were (belatedly) awarded the "AVA" clasp to the Army of India Medal.
A VERY RARE MEDAL..We've had just 2 in over 30 years !
