An excellent pair in EF to an unfortunate and very young Yorkshire lad who succumbed, as so many did, at Scutari Hospital, to the horrendous levels of water borne illness and rife infections which existed during the Crimean War.

With rarely surviving service papers, this is an excellent & most attractive pair.

EF with early ribbons.
