History


The Naval General Service Medal was established by General Order on June 1, 1847. The was originally intended to reward actions of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, from 1793-1815, but it was later extended to include all naval actions until 1840. The Medal was retroactively awarded to all claimants of the Royal Navy who served in campaigns during this period. It was also awarded to some members of the British Army who served in the Fleet as marines or engineers. Claims were directed to the Secretary of Admiralty at Whitehall.

Every Medal was issued with a clasp which denoted the recognized action. More than one clasp could be awarded, with 7 clasps being the highest number officially issued to one recipient.
