Royal Visit to India of H.R.H. The Prince of Wales 1875-1876


A small silver medalet believed to have been given to members of the crews of HMS Renown, HMS Terrible and the Royal Yacht Osborne. The oval medal measures approximately 25 x 22mm, has a small fixed ring at the top for suspension and shows on the obverse the Prince of Wales’s emblem surrounded by the royal motto within the chain of the Most Exalted Order of the Star of India with the initials A and E at the die. The reverse has the lettering “H.RH. ALBERT EDWARD PRINCE OF WALES INDIA 1875-6”.. The Medal Yearbook for 2016 suggests this medalet was given given to members of the crews of vessels carrying the royal party. It is not clear form this reference whether that meant the whole crews or selected members. Judging by its scarcity I would incline to think the latter. The book does not illustrate the medalet and the reference identifies the ships wrongly.
