ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Heather Report 23 Nov 2008 19:00

Hello. I am hoping that someone on here will be able to help me. My great, great, great grandfather was awarded the Crimean War Medal (with Sebastpol clasp), Turkish Crimean War Medal, 5 Good Conduct Badges and Long Service Medal.

I no nothing about medals, and am having trouble finding a photo of a Good Conduct Badge? Am I taking this to literally in thinking it was a badge??? Was it a medal? Can anyone help me, please.
