The Army of India Medal (AIM) was a campaign medal approved in 1851 for issue to officers and men of the British Army and Honourable East India Company. The award was given retrospectively by the East India Company to survivors of various actions during the period 1799 to 1826. This period encompassed four wars: the Second Mahratta War (1803-4), the Gurkha War (1814-16), the Pindaree or Third Mahratta War (1817-18) and the First Burmese War (1824-26).

The ‘Justmedals’ Victorian and 19th Century medal rolls
Licensed exclusively to us - a significant work of medal rolls from the ‘justmedals collection’.
These cover the Victorian and late 19th century of conflict including both Army and Navy campaign medals.
It is important to note that it wasn’t until 1815 with the Waterloo medal that campaign medals were routinely given to anyone other than commissioned officers, therefore the medals shown in these various databases are some of the earliest recorded for ‘other ranks’ and are therefore very significant.
