This book outlines the medals issued to British soldiers and sailors for military service across the globe. Their campaign medals have become a popular field for collectors since, apart from the artisitic merit of some awards, most British medals were officially named, making it possible to research the military career of an individual. Collectors feel that they can hold in their hand, a real link with the people and events of the past and with famous incidents in Britain's military history. About the author Peter Duckers has been a collector of British campaign and gallantry medals for many years and now specialises in awards to the Indian Army. He is a member of the Orders and Medals Research Society, the Military Historical Society and the Indian Military Historical Society.
