India General Service Medal 1908 Royal Munster Fusiliers Ww1 Pow Irish For Sale
An India General Service medal with clasp North West Frontier 1908.
The medal has impressed naming to: 6319 PTE. J. O’BRIEN, 1-R.MUN.FUS.
John O’Brien’s entitlement to this medal & clasp is confirmed on the Medal Roll. However, it looks like he lost his original medal as there is a note in the Remarks column of The Roll stating “Replacement by(?) 435, 29.12.21”
As this medal has officially impressed naming it is therefore his replacement medal which was issued in 1921. The first issue of his medal would have had the naming engraved in running script.
John O’Brien also served in WW1 & was entitled to a 1914 Star (& clasp) trio. His Medal Index Card also states “P of W” indicating that he was a Prisoner of War.
The medal is around VF condition. There are some rim dents on the reverse side. Please see the pictures for a better idea.
I will provide copies of his page from the Roll & also his Medal Index Card.
Please see my other medal sales which may be of interest.
