British War Medal, First World War 1914-1918

This medal was awarded to Lieutenant Colonel F. Call. It is one of 17 campaign medals awarded to members of the Call family, now in the museum collection. The medals date from the Peninsular War (1807-1814) to the Great War (1914-1918). The Call family served with the Royal Irish Regiment, which until 1881 was known as the 18th Regiment of Foot. It was also known as the 18th (Royal Irish) Regiment of Foot and the 18th (The Royal Irish) Regiment of Foot. The regiment was disbanded in 1922. The British War medal was a campaign medal of the United Kingdom awarded to officers and men of British and Imperial forces for service in the First World War. Designed by W. McMillan, this silver medal depicts the head of King George V with the inscription GEORGIVS V BRITT: OMN: REX ET IND: IMP: (George 5th, King of all the Britons and Emperor of India). The reverse depicts a naked horseman, armed with a short sword and trampling on the eagle shield of the Central Powers. A skull and crossbones, representing death, are by the shield and the rising sun of Victory is positioned above the horse's head. The dates 1914 and 1918 are positioned to the left and right. The ribbon is coloured with a broad orange vertical stripe down the centre, bordered with white, black and blue stripes. TRURI : 1931.40.56
