Circular silver medal with laterally-pierced ball suspension (which may have replaced an original small royal crown suspension); the face with the half-length portrait of Colonel Pablo Morillo facing left, inscribed to the left ‘PABLO MORILLO DEFENSOR HEROICO DEL PUENTE DE SAMPAYO’ (Pablo Morillo heroic defender of Puente de Sampayo) and to the right ‘PRIMER CENTENARIO DE LA INDEPENDENCIA – AÑO 1909’ (First Centenary of Independence 1909) all within a laurel border; the reverse with a radiant sun shining on the damaged bridge over the River Verdugo at Puente de Sampayo within a border with helms pointing inwards at the top, bottom, left and right, inscribed upper right ‘PUENTE SAMPAYO 7yX JUNIO 1809’; on replaced ribbon, correct except that the azure band should be top left to bottom right, on probably original pasador top bar mounted for wear. The battle of Puente de Sampayo between the French under Marshal Ney and the defending Spanish soldiers and militia was a crucial event in forcing the occupying French from Galicia. The medal is rarely found.
