I have one of these medals but not sure to which of my forbears it belonged! Does it mean it was awarded in 1860? It is in a box- it rests on purple velvet and the top is marked Elkington & Co.Ltd 22 Regent St. SW.

Many thanks for your comment. The date 1860 denotes the first meeting of the National Rifle Association at Wimbledon on 2-7 July of that year - Administrator
