Delhi Durbar Medal 1911 awarded to Lieutenant-Colonel Edmund Wilkinson, Indian Medical Service
This medal was issued to commemorate King George V's Coronation Durbar celebration in December 1911. A total of 26,800 medals were awarded, although only about 25 per cent of those soldiers actually present at the Durbar ended up with a medal. The Persian inscription on the reverse reads: 'The Durbar of George V, Emperor of India, Lord and Master of the British Lands.'
