    Medal Between 1914 and 1918 
    British War Medal & Victory Medal 
    WW1 British War Medal, 1914-18
    WW1 British War Medal, 1914-18
    Established on 26th July 1919.

    Also known as 'Squeak'.
    The silver or bronze medal was awarded to officers and men of the British and Imperial Forces who either entered a theatre of war or entered service overseas between 5th August 1914 and 11th November 1918 inclusive. This was later extended to services in Russia, Siberia and some other areas in 1919 and 1920.
    Approximately 6.5 million British War Medals were issued. Approximately 6.4 million of these were the silver versions of this medal. Around 110,000 of a bronze version were issued mainly to Chinese, Maltese and Indian Labour Corps. The front of the medal depicts the head of George V.
    The recipient's service number, rank, name and unit was impressed on the rim.
    WW1 Allied Victory Medal
    WW1 Allied Victory Medal
    Also known as 'Wilfred'
    It was decided that each of the allies should each issue their own bronze victory medal with a similar design, similar equivalent wording and identical ribbon.
    The British medal was designed by W. McMillan. The front depicts a winged classical figure representing victory.
    Approximately 5.7 million victory medals were issued. Interestingly, eligibility for this medal was more restrictive and not everyone who received the British War Medal ('Squeak') also received the Victory Medal ('Wilfred'). However, in general, all recipients of 'Wilfred' also received 'Squeak' and all recipients of 'Pip' also received both 'Squeak' and 'Wilfred'.
    The recipient's service number, rank, name and unit was impressed on the rim.
