Poster Print of Turkish Crimea Medal 1855, Crimean War 1854-1856

This medal was awarded to 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 medal was issued by Sultan Abdulmecid I of the Ottoman Empire to allied military personnel involved in the Crimean War of 1854-1856. There were three different issues of this medal for those awarded to British, French or Sardinian personnel. On the obverse, the circular silver medal bears the flags of France, Turkey, Britain and Sardinia with the inscription 'CRIMEA 1855'. The flags surmount a cannon, anchor, mortar and map with a partly obscured Imperial Russian flag beneath. The reverse depicts a wreath, made from two sprigs of laurel tied together with ribbon at the base, enclosing the Sultan of Turkey's cypher and the year of the Hegira, 1271. The rim is inscribed with the recipient's rank, name and regiment. The ribbon, now faded, is crimson with vertical stripes of green. TRURI : 1931.40.47
