Army Long Service and Good Conduct Medal, Victoria, 2nd version, 1874-1901 issue, court-mounted, attributed, Rifle Brigade
Circular silver medal on ornate swivel scroll suspension; the face with a trophy of arms, an escutcheon with the royal arms centrally; the reverse inscribed ‘FOR / LONG SERVICE / AND / GOOD CONDUCT’ above an arabesque, attributed on the edge in impressed blackened capitals to ‘2771. PTE. J. WOOD, 3RD RIFLE: BDE.’; on a correct relatively recent court-mounting. The medal was instituted in 1830 and has undergone various changes in design and award criteria since that date. At the time this example was awarded, the requirement was 18 years’ exemplary service. Private John Wood was born at Manchester in 1836 and enlisted in the 3rd Battalion, the Rifle Brigade, in October 1857. He served with the Brigade in India from 1858 to 1872 and was awarded the Long Service and Good Conduct Medal on 1 August 1876. He was honourably discharged on 9 October 1878 after 20 years and 348 days with the colours. Sold with eight sheets of relevant copied records. A very good example.
