British War Medal British War Medal
McMillan, William (b.1887, d.1977)
Circa 1919
The obverse of this medal shows the uncrowned left-facing profile of King George V by Sir Bertram Mackennal. The reverse of the medal depicts St George on horseback trampling underfoot the eagle shield of the Central Powers, and a skull and cross-bones (the emblems of death). Above, the sun has risen in victory. The figure is mounted on horseback to symbolise man's mind controlling a force of greater strength than his own, and thus alludes to the scientific and mechanical developments and machines which helped to win the war.

The ribbon consists of an orange watered centre, with thin stripes of white and black at each side, and borders of royal blue.

Around the edge of the medal is stamped "8/2830 Pte. G. Addison. N.Z.E.F."
