Afghanistan Medal, Second Afghan War 1878-1880

This medal, together with two clasps, was awarded to Captain G.F. Call who served with the Royal Engineers. 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 medal was awarded to members of the British and Indian armies who served in Afghanistan between 1878-1880 during the Second Afghan War. The clasps awarded are for the Battle of Ahmed Khel (19th April 1880) and the Battle of Kandahar (1st September 1880). The Battle of Kandahar was the last conflict in the war. The bronze medal features the bust of Queen Victoria on the obverse with the inscription VICTORIA REGINA ET IMPERATRIX. The reverse shows troops on horseback with an elephant and the inscription AFGHANISTAN 1878-79-80. The rim is inscribed with the recipients rank, name and regiment. The ribbon features vertical stripes of red and green. TRURI : 1931.40.51
