Hello,

I am posting a photo of a medal that was presented to Mr Evan Edwards by The Cunard Steam Ship Company Limited.

The medal reads........Presented to E. Edwards, RNR, Winning Lifeboat Crew, RMS Lusitania, Sept.1912. I cannot find any info

on the internet about this medal so any help you can give would be great.

Thanks again. post-119150-0-57114800-1419629764_thumb.

Hello,

many thanks for your replies.

I put an advert in a shop window to say that I was interested in buying militaria, Medals, Cap badges, Helmets and so on.

A good few weeks went by when I got a phone call asking if I was Interested in buying some medals. I went to the house and

I bought The above medal along with his Trio and LSGC Medal. All this for a 50p window ad.

Thanks again for your interest.

ABERDALE.
