Title Gordon Highlander's Tug of War medal (1st battalion)
Nationality Scottish
Period 1930
Sold

This little gem measures 22mm across and shows the regimental title, battle honours, Tiger & Sphinx motif, and is die struck on one side, with 'Tug of War // 1bn Games // Landikotal1930' engraved on the other. The practice of awarding these fob-type medals started c. 1900.

It is made of unhallmarked silver and is in GVF condition.

I have safely received the VK 2 award. Many thanks for dealing with my order so promptly.

I received the silver Verdienstkreuz this morning. Your swiftness and dedication was very much appreciated and, though the envelope arrived with a Post Office sticker saying it had been found open or damaged, the cross was unharmed and looks beautiful. Thanks for your time.
