Set Of 3 "Pip Squeak & Wilfred" Miniature Medals

Pip, Squeak and Wilfred - the nicknames of the four 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”.

This trio of medals, including either the 1914 star or the 1914-15 star were often awarded together to veterans of the Great war. When worn together the medals have a set order of the star first (either the 1914 or 1914-15 star, recipients of one star would not be eligible for the other), the British War medal followed by the Victory medal, sometimes referred to as the Allied Victory Medal.

AWARD miniature medals complement the full-size official medals and are normally worn for formal dinner dress occasions.

These medals are supplied loose on 6 inches of ribbon.
