UK Victorian Crimea Medal Sebastopol Bar

Written by

Crimea war medal 1854-1856 with one of the five possible clasps – Sebastopol. Whislt the condition is “well loved” as a used car dealer would say the naming on the rim is very interesting.

LIEGEOLS or LIEGEOIS with no unit makes me think it has been issued to a French soldier. However to complicate matters further the French in the time of the crimean campaign (1854-6) LIEGEOIS were a Belgian unit serving with the French forces. Would the medals be named to a unit directly? Or is this a surname for a Soldier with some family conection to Liege?
