Trying to identify unusual medal


Recommended Posts

Can anyone please help to identify an unusual medal which was awarded to a friend's great-uncle in 1915:

Front: A crown at the top. A winged Irish harp in the centre. Motto - Quis Separabit.

Laurel wreaths around the edge with battle honours (I have kept to the spelling as on the medal) -

Peninsula; Balaklava; Sevastopol; Egypt 1880.

Reverse: Laurel wreath around the edge. Inscribed in the centre is:


Pte Spiers

4 R.R.C


1st Class Shot

Many thanks

Bob Findley
