Stock code: MD112260319
Categories: Military Medals
Military General Service 1793-1814, 6 clasps, Albuhera, Vittoria, Pyrenees, Nivelle, Nive, Toulouse (Thos. Munn, 57th Foot) suspension claw tightened and neat repair to carriage on one side between first two clasps, otherwise nearly very fine.

During the early part of the war in the Peninsula, the regiment, which contained a number of turbulent characters in its ranks, received the nickname of the ‘Steelbacks’, from the amount of flogging administered to these men and the way they bore the punishment; but after Albuhera, Colonel Inglis’ words to his ‘fighting villains’ caused this soubriquet to be replaced by the honourable one of ‘Die Hards.’ At this bloodiest of battles the 57th had 2 officers and 87 men killed and 21 officers and 318 men wounded.
The regiment sustained a further 28 casualties at Vittoria, 75 in the Pyrennes, 64 at Nivelle and 127 at Nive.

Sold with extensive photocopied paperwork confirming entitlement.
