Tower of medals

medals with colourful ribbons

Many people have medals which can give an insight into a relative's army career. Medals are mostly awarded for brave acts, campaign participation or service in the military.

City Soldiers displays a wide range of medals awarded to Kingsmen from 19th century to present day. Our interactive medals database, which is also available in the gallery, can help you identify your own relative's medals, starting with the colour of the ribbon.
