The India General Service Medal, 1885-7 Burma Bar, awarded to Pte J Marshall, 2nd Batt Liverpool Regiment.
The India General Service Medal (1854 IGSM) was a campaign medal approved on 1 March 1854, for issue to officers and men of the British and Indian armies. It was awarded for various minor military campaigns in India and nearby countries, between 1852 and 1895.
In 1852 Lord Dalhousie had suggested a general service medal for smaller Indian campaigns, in order to limit the number of individual medals awarded.
Indian Army units made up the majority of forces present for nearly all campaigns. While the expeditions covered by the medal included few formal battles, most were undertaken in difficult terrain against determined resistance from local tribesmen.
In 1895, the India Medal was authorised to reflect service in further Indian expeditions, replacing the 1854 General Service Medal
