This is a price-guide reference book containing up-to-date values, and lots of historical information on all campaign medals and related items awarded to British and their colonial and local allies from 1793 to 1902. Every significant campaign is covered, including details of the various clasps awarded. The images of medals and maps are full colour, and are often full page sized.
Stephen Philip Perkins, the son of a Royal Marine who served in both the first and second world wars, always had an interest in the medals awarded to his father and to other family members. Since actively collecting British medals, his personal collection and knowledge has grown steadily over the last 15+ years. Stephen is a member of the Orders and Medals Research Society, and since 2004 has been involved with BBC 3 Counties Radio, as the Medal and Orders phone-in expert.
