Miniature circular bronze medal with claw and fixed ribbon bar suspension; the face with the head of King George V facing left, circumscribed ‘GEORGIVS V BRITT: OMN: REX ET IND: IMP:’ (George V King of Great Britain and Emperor of India); the reverse inscribed ‘FOR / VOLUNTARY / SERVICE / OVERSEAS / 1914-1919’ within a wreath of laurel, circumscribed above ‘TERRITORIAL WAR MEDAL’; diameter 17.76mm (0.71 inch); age-toned; on replaced correct ribbon. The Medal was instituted in 1919 to be awarded to those who served overseas during the Great War who had been serving with the Territorial Forces on 4 August 1914 or who had completed four years’ service before that date and rejoined on or before 30 September 1914. Anyone qualifying for the 1914 (Mons) Star or the 1914-15 Star was excluded and in the event only 34,000 medals were awarded, making it the rarest of the World War I medals. A good period miniature.
