The Royal Observer Corps Medal by Richard Sirley is a complete history of this long service medal from its introduction in 1950 to when the corps stood down in 1995. All the recipients of this medal are listed together with details of when the award was made, any subsequent award of clasps, where the recipient served and any entitlement to other awards. The process of designing the medal, ribbon and clasp is fully described and illustrated. A brief history of the Royal Observer Corps explains how it developed and changed over the years to meet changing circumstances. The various badges worn by the Royal Observer Corps over the years are also described and illustrated. Many interesting groups of medals are illustrated and described in detail.
