The descendants of Donald GRANT are searching for his missing General Service Medal 1793-1814 awarded for his participation in the Battle of Maida.
Donald GRANT was born in Nigg, Scotland. He fought at the Battle of Maida and received the General Service Medal as a member of the 78th Regiment of Foot (Ross-shire Buffs). The Battle of Maida took place on the 4th of July 1806, and was a battle between the British Expeditionary Force and a First French Empire division outside the town of Maida in Calabria, Italy during the Napoleonic Wars.
It is believed the General Service Medal with bar for Maida, ended up in New Zealand and we would dearly like to locate it. We fully appreciate that anything could have happened to this medal and it may even be in possession of a museum or a private collector who values this medal in their collection. However we would very much appreciate it, just to discover where it is and with your kindness, negotiate the possibility of selling it back to our family.
