First World War Victory Medal 1914-1919

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 Victory medal (also called the Allied or Inter-Allied Victory medal) was a UK and British Empire First World War campaign medal issued to all those who received the 1914 Star or the 1914-1915 Star and to most of those who were awarded the British War medal - it was not awarded singly. Designed by W. McMillan, this bronze medal depicts the winged figure, Victory, bearing an olive branch. The reverse depicts a wreath surrounding the inscription THE GREAT WAR FOR CIVILISATION, 1914-1919. The colours of the ribbon are vertical stripes of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and violet merged into a rainbow pattern. A bronze oak leaf clasp, received in recognition of being mentioned in despatches, is attached to the ribbon. TRURI : 1931.40.57
