    Does anyone have any information on this medal? The silver-gilt and enamel. The reverse is blank except for the maker’s mark "Wilson & Sharp/Edinburgh" and silver marks.

    Possibly Masonic?

    This came in today from the curator of the regimental museum:

    "The medal is called the "hands Across the Sea Medal". It was given to the wives of servicemen who got together during World War I to send presents to regimental soldiers at the front. Some knitted gloves, some just sent presents. It is an unofficial medal issued by the regiment…The ribbon is made in the regimental colours of the Royal Scots Greys".

    So, now we know.
