Dave, Tony and seaJane,

 

Very many thanks for your replies and links.  Was surprised to find that Isidore was a fairly

 common name in period.  Thankfully the medal has survived in good condition,

so many were weighed in and scrapped.

 

Mike.

He was the son of a Russian Jew. It seems that Isadore may have been used as an Angicisation of Hebrew names such as Isaac and Israel at that time.
