Order of the Medjidie Medal (Fifth Class), Crimean War 1854-1856

This medal was awarded to Brevet Lieutenant Colonel George Frederick Stevenson 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 Turkish Order of the Medjidie was instituted in 1851 for distinguished service of members of the British Army, Royal Navy and French Army who came to the aid of the Ottoman Empire, against the Russian Empire, during the Crimean War. The medal is one of many honours and awards of the Crimean War period. New rules concerning the acceptance of foreign orders and medals were announced in 1855. The silver medal is in the form of a star with red enamelled centrepiece and attached to a green-edged white ribbon by a crescent moon enclosing a five pointed star. TRURI : 1931.40.50
