HMS Exmouth was a 90-gun screw propelled second rate ship of the line launched in 1854. In 1855 she served in the Baltic Sea as flagship of Sir Michael Seymour. She was lent to the Metropolitan Asylums as a training ship in 1877 and was broken up in 1905.

~ HMS Boadicea ~

HMS Boadicea was a Bacchante-class corvette launched in 1875.

~ Baltic Medal ~

The Baltic Medal was a campaign medal approved in 1856, for issue to officers and men of the Royal Navy, Royal Marines, and Royal Sappers and Miners who served in Baltic Sea operations against Russia in the Baltic theatre of the Crimean War. The medal primarily covered naval actions but it was also awarded to 100 men or the Royal Sappers and Miners for their work in the demolition of Russian fortifications at Bomarsund and Sveaborg

~ South Africa Medal (1877) ~ 

The South Africa Medal (1879 SAM) was instituted in 1879 and was awarded by the British Government to members of the British Army and Royal Naval Brigade involved in a series of South African tribal wars between 1877 to 1879, but most notably for the Anglo-Zulu War made famous by the films Zulu (1964) and Zulu Dawn (1979).

~ Condition ~ 

Both medals have some slight surface wear, such as scratching and knocking to the rims, but remains in an overall good condition. The ribbons are rather short and the one on the Baltic medal is incorrect.
