The ‘Justmedals’ Victorian and 19th Century medal rollsLicensed 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.
