Description

At King Edward VII's succession to Queen Victoria in 1901, most of the service medals then on issue were renewed with a portrait of the new monarch by George de Saulles, but with the current reverses and suspensions maintained. The Army Long Service & Good Conduct Medal was no exception, as comparison with the earlier issue under Victoria will show.
This medal was awarded to Battery Quartermaster Sergeant J. Christie of the Royal Field Artillery. Lester Watson purchased it at some point before 1928.
