The Army Long Service and Good Conduct Medal



The most detailed study ever published of how the British Army’s system for rewarding good conduct and long and meritorious service evolved over the century from 1830 to 1930. Fred Larimore, a highly knowledgeable collector of Army LS&GC Medals, has examined the vast number of Royal Warrants, Army Circulars, War Office Orders, regulations and other original documents held in The National Archives. Many of these are reproduced in the book.

The medals issued for long service and good conduct during this period are described in details and fully illustrated, including the various naming styles. The Honourable East India Company’s medals are included as they were an integral part of the rewards system’s development.
