Victory Medal 1914-19 : Miniature Reproduction
A miniature reproduction of the First World War Victory Medal affectionately known as "Wilfred".
This medal was awarded to all services of the British armed forces that had already received the 1914 Star or 1914-15 Star and to those who received the British War Medal.
World war I (1914-18) was fought between the Allied Powers and the Central Powers. On the western front fighting was characterised by trench warfare where during an attack a few metres of ground were gained for an enormous cost in lives. Aerial warfare developed into bombing and air-toair combat. On November 11th an armistice was signed between Germany and the allies bringing the war to an end.
This reproduction Victory medal is made from 22ct golt plated lead-free pewter. It is supplied on a rainbow coloured ribbon attached to a card with an image of troops surrounded by motar bombs on the front and historical information on the reverse.
