Indian Mutiny – 87th Regiment (Royal Irish Fusiliers)
Indian Mutiny, 2568 . Mat Finlay, 87th Regt. (Officially impressed naming)
Correct on medal roll, which shows Matthew Finlay was discharged on the 21st April 1864.
It is interesting to note that all the medals issued to the 87th were issued slightly later than those to other regiments, and therefore all have the recipient’s regimental number; therefore this medal is not a later replacement, but the normal issue made to men of the regiment.
Condition – GVF+, the union flag being clear on the shield.
