This is the British War Medal from WW1. The reverse shows a very Pistrucci-esque naked Saint George on horseback, carrying a short sword, trampling a Prussian eagle on a shield and a skull & crossbones. Designed by William McMillan. 6.5 million were made in silver, 110,000 in bronze. 427,993 of the silver ones went to the Canadian Expeditionary Force. Mine is edge engraved with the serial number and name of a Canadian infantryman: "2528428 PTE L SHRIGLEY 58-CAN INF". I've been trying to find out more about L Shrigley, but haven't been able to find an obituary. Closest I've found is the enlistment papers for a Leslie Shrigley, born 1897, and no certificate of death in military service. So, on a related note; does anyone know how to research this veteran?
