hello all,i am a new member and i am looking for any info on a medal i have ,its solid silver hallmarked b/ham 1911 bit bigger than 2 coin with engraving of a battleship one side other side engraving of elephant standing on scroll which reads hms hindustan,the medal is inside a swivel mount with pin which is also silver with same hallmark.there are no personal names on the medal ,would this be a medal handed out to all the crew or a type of lovers gift from a member of the crew to a partner/wife,i have seen on this site that the prince of wales was a crew member and did his naval training on hindustan could this be a commenorative from that time,thanks for looking hope someone knows more thanks,roger.
