Indian Mutiny Medal 1857-59

A SUPERB QUALITY DIE-STRUCK SILVER-PLATED REPLICA COMPLETE WITH A LENGTH OF NEW RIBBON.

 

The issue of greased cartridges to native soldiers as part of re-equipping the east India Company with new rifles has often been blamed for the Mutiny but it was not the underlying cause. Unrest had been brewing for a long time in India particularly after the annexation of the provinces of Oudh and the Punjab in 1856.
In March 1857 seven companies of the Bengal Native Infantry mutinied at Barrackpore, followed in May by Sepoys at Meerut where teh first European was killed, Colonel Finnis.
This medal to mark the mutiny was sanctioned by General Order 363 dated 18th August 1858 and 733 dated 1859 to all who had been engaged against the mutineers. By General Order 771 of 1868 this was extended to all who had borne arms or had been under fire.
This superb die-struck replica with swivelling suspension is manufactured to order and can be supplied with any of the five clasps awarded, Delhi, Defence of Lucknow, Relief of Lucknow, Lucknow and Central India.
