I am sure that many of us older collectors have medals that they have come across over the years and although not within theme collected have remained in a safe, box or whatever. I have about 15/20 such Victorian items, some that I have had many years ( 3 bar QSA that I gave 3/6 for(17p) I could not afford the Waterloo medal at 7/6 (72p) For p read Cents )some I have not had as long but are result of failed swaps.

I was today being harried to move stuff around because of Decorators and came across my album of such items, two lovely clean Indian Mutiny medals stood out with their beautiful distinctive ribbons. I realised that I know very little about the men and wondered if someone more experienced with military research could point me in right direction.

Both medals are to the 1st Battalion 8th Regt.

1. Geo(rge) Thwaites. Medal no bar

2. Jose(ph) Mitton Medal bar Dehli
