George V 'King's Medal', Awarded per London City Council ?

Recommended Posts

 Hello Gents, I thought I might inquire about this particular Medal, as I really don't know very much about it, other than the obvious intention of the award, as indicated on it ? The only reason I purchased it to begin with was the price. I'm into it for the whopping sum of $12.50 USD. ( RE:  $5.00 Medal + $7.50 Shipping ) I believe it's from the WW1 era, although I'm not certain. Could anyone please give me an idea as to if it was worth my 'investment', and or anything else about it ? It appears to be officially engraved to someone named: F. Barry. THANK YOU Guys,

THANK YOU Graham & Dave W., as always, I really do appreciate the kind replies. I have observed a few various examples over the years, but unless they were related to a particular group, I wasn't interested in the least. On this one however, I felt that for $12.50 U.S., I shouldn't pass it up. I'll put it away in my junk drawer, just in case I ever do have a need for it ? Not to change the subject too much, but I also noted a nice, 1903 'Visit To Scotland' U.K. Police Medal, at IIRC $90.00 U.S.D.. Now that's much more in my line, but I did vow NOT to buy anything else unless it was an absolute 'steal', so to speak. Personally, I just love the U.K. Police / Law Enforcement awards, but to delve into another collecting realm at this point isn't financially feasible right now. So, I simply have to stick with dreaming about them !! THANKS,

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
