Is this a forces medal?
« on: Sunday 02 December 18 14:55 GMT (UK) »
My nephew has sent me this photo of what he thinks was a medal belonging  to his grandfather. I don't think I have ever seen it before. Is it a medal relating to the military?

Thank you for getting back to me.  I didn't think it was, I think maybe the one he was looking after has been lost.

Could it be a badge/pendant of the Yorkshire Rose? Is there a connection to Yorkshire?
