MEDALJ. 1741. GREAT BRITAIN. Carthagena battle 1741. Vernon/Ogle.
Admiral Edward Vernon was on everybody's lips after several successful battles. In January 1741 he was largely reinforced by a fleet under Sir Chaloner Ogle. The fleet was decided to attack Carthagena, and some success was gained in the following March and the admiral Vernon sent home a premature dispatch announcing his victory, and once more the popular enthusiasm was ablaze - and again the medallists proclaimed his glory (as shown on this medal) - but the Carthagena defence was too strong and admiral Vernon was later on forced to retire from this battle.
Obverse: View of the Carthagena ship battle. Legend: "TRUE BRITISH HEROES TOOK CARTHAGENA". In Exergue: "APRIL 1741".
Reverse: To the left Admiral Edward Vernon, and to the right Sir Chaloner Ogle. Legend: "ADMIRAL VERNON AND Sr CHALONER OGLE". Diametre, 37 mm.
