The Families in British India Society wiki is a great source of informatio­n detailing, among many other topics, the numerous resources that relate to the Indian Mutiny that began in the town of Meerut on 10 May 1857. The campaign medal was awarded to officers and men in British and Indian units who fought in the suppressio­n of the mutiny. Here you can find the society’s medal-roll database listing more than 50,000 names of British Army soldiers, transcribe­d by this month’s expert, Kevin Asplin. This sits alongside a list of Madras Artillery and staff awarded the medal for the First China War (or First Opium War) in 1842.
