  14. Sanish medals of the Independance war.

    To this medal and many other I have ever known record books or lists of concessions. That does not mean that we would have. On the ribbon the image of the medal included in the work of SALAT, have no ring or hook I have not seen in any book or work references to ribbon. It could be a medal type "hand" or "table". In my website you can see some medals this period, including one of Bagur, with ring, but no ribbon http://coleccionesmilitares.com/medallas/texto/independencia.htm

Doyle, for his services in the attack of the tower and Bagur battery; and the commander Lawrie, who commanded the Marines Cambrian. SALAT, Josef.
