History


This medal was established during the reign of Alexander II in commemoration of the War of 1853-1856. It was conferred upon personnel in the Imperial Russian Army and Navy who served in the war against Turkey.

This medal could be awarded to non-commissioned officers, petty officers, enlisted men, and sailors who had taken part in the battle near the naval base of Petropavlovsk; to personnel who were indirectly involved in the conflict; to a Cossack Cavalry regiment; to civilians and militia; and to merchants and civilians who helped the wounded.

Each of the above-mentioned recipients would qualify for a particular ribbon.

This medal is also known as the Medal for the Crimean War.

The reverse inscription translates to: "We have Set Our Hopes in Thee O Lord, Let Us Never Be Ashamed".
