Set of 3 Pip Squeak & Wilfred Framed Medals
Set of 3 Pip Squeak & Wilfred Framed Medals

Pip, Squeak and Wilfred - the nicknames of the three medals instituted at the end of the First World War, came about due to the popularity of the characters of a Daily Mirror newspaper strip, thought up by Bertram J Lamb, which first appeared in 1919.

“Pip” a dog, “Squeak” a penguin and “Wilfred” a rabbit were inseparable. “Pip” was used to describe the 1914 and 1914-1915 Star, holders of one were not eligible for the other, “Squeak” was the name given to the British War Medal and to complete the trio the Victory Medal became “Wilfred”.

The three museum quality, die-struck replica medals are beautifully mounted and framed and can be personalised with an inscription.
