The War Medal 1939–1945 is a silver or cupro-nickel disk, 36 millimetres in diameter. The non-swivelling suspender is attached to the medal with a single-toe claw mount and a pin through the upper edge of the medal. The British issue medals were struck in cupro-nickel, while those awarded in Canada were struck in silver. The medal is sometimes incorrectly referred to as the "Victory Medal" for the Second World War

The obverse shows the crowned coinage effigy of King George VI, facing left and signed "PM", the initials of designer Percy Metcalfe, below the truncated neck of the effigy. Around the perimeter is the legend "GEORGIVS VI D:G:BR:OMN:REX ET INDIAE IMP:"

Un-named medal, original with original ribbon.
