Very nice named British Life Saving Medal. RLSS bar coincides with medal obverse that reads 'ROYAL LIFE SAVING SOCIETY ESTABLISHED 1891' and shows a sea rescue in process. The reverse reads 'AWARDED TO' and is engraved with the name 'M. S. COSSETT AUG 1926'. Around the edge of the obverse is Latin, probably the society slogan. The second bar is the date 1933, probably when the award was presented. Both bars are on the original ribbon which is usually long gone...
