Jubilee Medal 1897, 20th June 1897, Diamond Jubilee of Queen Victoria.
Fitted with a very old ribbon having clearly seen wear with some pitting and general contact marking
The edge at some time named, the remains of the old engraving reading “Georges” in the middle, a gap then “Windsor” at the end.
The records of the royal household list only one “Georges”.
So it is extremely likely to be the medal of “Wm Georges” who was a Keeper of Wardrobes and Bedds to both King Edward VII (Establishment List for the Royal Household of Queen Alexandra, transferred form the Household of King Edward VII) in 1910 and King George in 1915.
It might not sound that impressive but the Keeper of the “Royal” Wardrobe was a well paid and respected rank with a lot of responsibility, each Royal property would have their own Keeper. Such as Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace, St James Palace etc.
Silver medals were only for higher ranks of the Royal Household Staff and the wear would line up with long service after 1897.
