    Default RMS Lusitania Medal

    Hi Guys, this one came into work last week and I thought that you might like to see it?

    Made by the British as part of a propaganda campaign.

    Still in it's box and in nice condition.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Very interesting!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Greetings Ade,

    Here's a copy of the flyer that would have been originally folded up inside the box.

    Regards,

    I have one of these somewhere but I have always regarded it as a later copy as I believe there are more copies than originals about.
    Does anyone know how to identify an original?
    If mine is real I think I should rescue it from the bottom of the "odds and sods box"

    Regards
