Sotheby’s London, Trafalgar: Nelson and the Napoleonic Wars, 5 October 2005, lot 197

Catalogue Note

Although this medal is by tradition associated with Alexander Davison, no references to it have been found within the extensive Davison archives. Although analogous to Boulton’s Trafalgar medal it is much rarer and is believed to have been awarded only to those who served aboard H.M.S. Victory at Trafalgar.
