0212.0: Colonial Meritorious Service Medals

Added by: megan
Description: Instituted on 31 May 1898, these were awarded to members of colonial forces in a dizzing array of different designs and ribbons depending on the colony in question. The general design was first a trophy of arms but more commonly the reigning sovereign on the obverse, the reverse being similar to the British MSM but with the addition of the name of the awarding colony... and of course they are quite rare!
