Military Medal and letter

The Military Medal was a decoration awarded to personnel in the British Army for bravery in battle on land. It was first awarded in 1914 and discontinued in 1993. This medal was awarded to Misty's Great Grandad who fought in WW2. The ribbon and letter are originals but the medal is a replica as the original was sold to raise money.
