Unusual and Rare Miniature Group of Four. ***India General Service Medal 1936-1939 with ‘North West Frontier 1936-37’ clasp. Miniature circular silver medal with claw and ornate swivel scroll ribbon bar with original ‘NORTH WEST FRONTIER 1936-37’ clasp; the face with the crowned head of King George VI facing left, circumscribed ‘GEORGIUS VI D: G: BR: OMN: REX ET INDIAE IMP: (George VI by the Grace of God King of Great Britain and Emperor of India); the reverse with a tiger above a mountainous landscape, circumscribed ‘INDIA’ above; diameter 18.34mm (0.72 inch). The medal was instituted on 3 August 1938 to be awarded for minor campaigns in India. It was awarded for actions from 1936 and was not awarded after the outbreak of World War II. The ‘North West Frontier 1936-37’ clasp was awarded for full-time active service in two very precisely defined areas between 24 November 1936 and 16 December 1937 during the revolt in Waziristan. ***War Medal 1939-1945. Miniature circular cupro-nickel medal with claw and ribbon bar suspension; the face with the crowned head of King George VI facing left, circumscribed ‘GEORGIVS VI D: G: BR: OMN: REX F: D: IND: IMP: (George VI by the Grace of God King of Great Britain, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India); the reverse with a triumphant lion standing on a prostrate dragon, dated ‘1939 1945’ above right; diameter 18.61mm (0.73 inch). The medal was instituted in 1945 and was awarded to all full-time members of the armed forces who had served at least 28 days between the outbreak of war (3 September 1939) and V.J.
