|NGS ACTIONS & BOAT SERVICE CLASPS – ONLINE DATABASE
As a wonderful companion `tool’ to the Message / DNW online NGS Roll, you can download [really quite rapidly] a Database relating to all known surviving NGS medals.
It is, again, a thing of beauty!
The database not only lists all Actions and all Boat Service engagements which resulted in clasps being awarded,( so there, Patrick, you have the specific `list’ you directly refer to above), it also records:
Name of Action, Date, Number of Ships involved, Number of Clasps issued.
In addition, on other pages within the spreadsheet / database, it details information, [provenance, dates of sale, prices realised, condition notes etc.] relating to known to be extant, surviving, NGS medals.
Yet another example of a `labour of love’, initially by Jeff Foster and, today, continuing in his footsteps, by Jim Murray.
[To ensure credit is made properly, I personally encountered that database via the British Medal Forum website; it is very generously made available for free download via the link above.]
