Distinguished Service Order Medal, First World War 1914-1918

This medal was awarded to Lieutenant Colonel F. Call at Buckingham Palace on 26th July 1919. 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 Distinguished Service Order is an operational gallantry award given for highly successful command and leadership during active operations. The Distinguished Service Order Medal was instituted by Queen Victoria in 1886 to reward individual instances of distinguished service in war. The medal is a white enamelled cross, edged in gold, with a red enamelled centre bearing a gold crown surrounded by a green enamelled laurel wreath. The reverse is of similar design with the exception of the centre which bears the Royal Cypher of King George V, a crown with the letters " GVR" underneath. The ribbon features vertical stripes of blue and red with decorated gold bars at the top and bottom. TRURI : 1931.40.53
