Liverpool Shipwreck and Humane Society, Marine Medal, silver (W. Bridge. For Gallant Rescue of the Captain of the Barque “Belmont” on May 2nd 1871) complete with silver ribbon buckle in a slightly later R. C. Oldfield presentation case, extremely fine £100-150

Footnote

William Bridge, Pilot, was awarded the Society’s ‘oval’ silver medal for his rescue in 1871. The circular Marine Medal was not introduced until 1874-5, so it would seem that this is a replacement medal issued circa 1890.
