History


The Ghuznee Medal was established by General Order in 1842. The Medal was awarded to British and Indian Officers, Non-Commissioned Officers, and enlisted men who participated in the Battle of Ghazni on July 23, 1839.

The Medal was never issued with a clasp, although examples may be found with privately made, unofficial clasps. The Medal was issued unnamed, but many recipients had their medals privately engraved on the rim or the reverse.

There may be additional versions of the Medal that differ in size.
