Indian Mutiny 1857-59, 1 clasp, Defence of Lucknow (3625 Pte. P. Quinn, 90th Foot) naming officially impressed in a later style, extremely fine £150-200


Private Peter Quinn served in Havelock’s Relief Force and was subsequently besieged at Lucknow, where he died on 26 October 1857. A note on the medal roll states ‘Medal & clasp re-issued 16.5.06’, no doubt as a result of a claim by his family in light of the approaching 50th anniversary of the Indian Mutiny.
