Campaign Groups and Pairs, what does this mean? Campaign medals are awarded for military actions and have been awarded since the first recognised campaign medal warded to those men who fought at the Battle of Waterloo. Soldiers, Sailors and indeed since the Great War (1914-1918) Airmen and indeed Airwomen have participated in not one action but in some cases many. A man may have been present in 1854 in the Charge of the Light Brigade at Balaklava, his Crimea Medal would be a prized single campaign medal but if he also went on to serve in India during the Indian Mutiny his Mutiny Medal would add greatly to the interest of the group, and, also the value.
The collection of Campaign Groups and Pairs therefore allows the collector to build a much bigger, and more interesting story, of one man or woman’s military career. Buy online with UK and worldwide delivery available or contact our expert team to arrange a viewing or ask any questions.
