Hello we have an identical medal as described above. It was left to us by my late grand mother who served as a military driver during WW2. We are interested as to why this medal was presented, and its value . Thank you for your comment. this medal would have been presented for by the National Rifle Association for a shooting competition. You can read more about the NRA and it's history at https://nra.org.uk/nra-bisley/museum/. As far as value goes I am not entirely sure but I notice that there is one for sale on Ebay for £8.00 ~ Administrator.
