UK India General Service 1895 Medal in Bronze to native troops – Punjab Frontier 1897-98

Written by

An India General Service medal IGS 1895 or IGS2 (2nd iteration) in Bronze to a native soldier or support trooper. Unfortunately the worst condition of all medals in my collection with the soft bronze and hard life in India contributing to many dents, scratches and edge knocks. As usually encountered the soliders name has been engraved around the rim of the medal but it is illegible.
