British Campaign Medals 1815-1914 by Peter Duckers. This book details the medals issued to British soldiers and sailors for military service across the globe between 1815 and 1914. At a time of imperial expansion, British forces were almost constantly in action- against major powers (like Russia 1854), in wars of conquest (as in West Africa in the 1880s), or in expeditions on the fringes of empire, such as the North-West frontier, southern Africa or Burma. Their campaign medals have become a popular field for collectors since. 2014 edition by Shire Publications Ltd, 40 pages, paperback.
