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,

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
