Afghan War medal, 1878-80, clasp “Ahmed Khel”
Gunner T. Whitlock, G/4 RA
This battery was at the centre of the British/Indian line in the fierce battle of Ahmed Khel (which came close to being a disaster on the Maiwand scale!).
Correct on roll which shows that recipient died in Meerut in 1881.
A nice looking medal – in about mint condition on original ribbon.
