The Story of the Army of India Medal and the H.E.I.C. Medal Roll of the Indian Army

Medals of British India by Robert P. Puddester

The Story of the Army of India Medal and the Honourable East India Company's Medal Roll of the Indian Army published by the Puddester Numismatic Foundation with exclusive worldwide distribution by Dix Noonan Webb.

For the first time, a roll is focused not only on Europeans but chronicles nearly 2000 Indian officers and men who received an Army of India medal and clasp(s).

In all 1451 Europeans and 1925 Indians are listed in this work as having received the Army of Indian medal while in the Indian Army or associated units but, in addition to a mere listing, biographical information is provided and the provenance has been researched over the past 140 years, often traced through many auctions, dealer sales and collections.

This Story of the Army of India Medal and the Indian Army 1799-1826, also describes in detail the battles against the Marathas, Burmese, Gurkhas and Jats. It explains the naming conventions of the East India Company's three presidencies and confirms the date a medal was issued from the Madras Roll.

This 400,000 plus word work is believed to be the first military reference colour-coded for ease of reference.

"The Army of India Medal provides an open window into the turbulent past of the subcontinent
through the investigation of the name of the person awarded the honour..."
