ARMY OF INDIA MEDAL
Awarded to commemorate a number of conflicts in late 18th Century and late 19th Century India, the medal had a relatively small number of recipients relative to the number of combatants due to the dates of the conflicts and the issue date of the medal itself.
The Bhurtpoor clasp, pictured here, was for service in the siege of Bhurtpoor, where an Indian Prince had interfered in the succession of the Indian Rajah. The conflict is notable for three British artillerymen deserting.
