Title Divisional whaler's crew medal, RNVR (Sussex Division)
Nationality British
Period 1950
Price £35.00

The medal (diameter 39mm) shows a whaling crew race with a warship in the background and it comes in a small red card box with a paper label attached on which is typed 'CPO Wyatt'. The whaler, normally manned by a crew of 12 oarsmen, was a small sailing boat used for ship's landing parties.

The name 'whaler' derives from the type of boat used in harpoon expeditions against whales principally in the 19th century.

The reverse of the medal shows the badge of the Sussex Divsion of the RNVR struck as part of the main medal.

The medal is struck in silver and is in GVF condition.

All these RND/RNVR medals came together from one source.
