Please help to identify British medal


Recommended Posts

Awards:

1. Russian Empire. Cross of St.George.

2. Romania. Medalia “Avântul Ţării”

3. Romania. Crucea Comemorativă a Războiului 1916-1918

4. Unknown British medal - George V era

5. Romania. Medalia “Virtutea Militară”

Could you please help with the identification of the British medal? Any ideas where that veteran could have served judging from the Russian and British awards?

Just to clarify number 2 is a campaign medal for the Crossing of the Danube in the Balkan War of 1913.

Number 3 could as easily be a 1916-1919 version for service in the re-occupation of Romanian Territories in Bas-arabia, Transylvania and the Occupation of Budapest, immediate post WW1.
