Naval General Service Medal 1793-1840, 1 Clasp: Algiers, awarded to Private 2nd Class John Willcox / Wilcox, Royal Marines

A fine unique name on the roll Naval General Service Medal 1793-1840, 1 Clasp: Algiers, awarded to Private 2nd Class John Willcox / Wilcox, Royal Marines, who served aboard the 40 gun Endymion class frigade H.M.S. Severn from 11th March 1816, being present at the bombardment of Algiers on 27th August 1816, though some questionable record keeping has him aboard the 74 gun ship of the line H.M.S. Minden, which was also present.
