Notes55.40, 57gms, Rare

RARE: This medal was issued by the Legislative Assembly of the Island of St. Vincent to the Militia and Volunteers who took part in the suppression of the native uprising during the period 1772-73. The Caribs had been encouraged to rebel against the English by the French settlers. A combined British and local force under the command of Major General Dalrymple, Commander-in-Chief of the West Indies campaigned against the Caribs who finally submitted on 20 February 1773.
