The British War Medal 1914-20; the Mercantile Marine War Medal; and the Victory Medal.
These are typical of the campaign medals that were earned by the crew of HMS Warrior. Second from the right is the Mercantile Marine War Medal, awarded by the Board of Trade to the men of the Merchant Navy, including the Mercantile Marine Reserve. In addition, service early in the war would have earned the 1914 Star or, in 1915, the 1914-15 Star.
