A very nice condition India General Service Medal with Jowaki 1877-8 clasp impressed to Nicholas Roads 4th Battalion Rifle Brigade. The India General Service Medal (1854 IGSM) was a campaign medal approved in 1854, for issue to officers and men of the British and Indian armies. The 1854 IGSM was approved on 1 March 1854. It was awarded for various minor military campaigns in India, during 1852 to 1895. Each battle or action covered by the medal was represented by a clasp on the ribbon, 24 were sanctioned, the maximum awarded to one man is thought to be seven. The medal was never issued without a clasp. The medal is silver, 1.4 inches in diameter, and was struck at the Royal Mint. It was later issued in bronze for camp followers and native civilians. The obverse bears a left facing effigy of Queen Victoria wearing a diadem and veil. Surrounding the head is the inscription 'VICTORIA REGINA'. The reverse depicts Victory crowning a seated nude warrior. The medal is suspended by a silver scrolled bar. The medal hangs from a ribbon 1 1/4 inches wide. It is divided into five stripes, three red and two dark blue, 1/4 inch wide. It is crisply impressed with "1750 Pte Nicholas Roads 4 Bn Rifle Bde". It has the 'Jowaki 1877-8' clasp and correct ribbon. It is nicely mounted on a piece of card and in a glass fronted display box. This is a very nice example. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 13626
