A Crimea Medal 1854-1855, 2 Clasps: Balaklava, Sebastopol, engraved naming, awarded to Private William Barrow, Royal Marines, who served aboard the 90 gun second rate ship of the line H.M.S. Albion during the Crimean War, and served at the battle of Balak
Crimea Medal 1854-1855, 2 Clasps: Balaklava, Sebastopol, engraved naming; (W. BARROW. PTE: R.M. H.M.S. ALBION)

Condition: slight contact wear, and edge bruise at 6 o'clock, Good Very Fine.
With original frayed ribbon.

William Barrow was born in Kentisbury, Combe Martin, Devon, and worked as a labourer before enlisting into Royal Marines when aged 19 at Barnstaple on 14th April 1848. Barrow went on to serve 8 years and 252 days with the Royal Marines, and saw sea service aboard the 90 gun second rate ship of the line H.M.S. Albion from 4th June 1850 through to 29th November 1855. Whilst aboard Albion, Barrow saw service during the Crimean War.

Her first military action was in the Crimean War during the seige of Sebastopol on 17 October 1854. While Albion's commanding officer, Captain Stephen Lushington, was commanding a Naval Brigade providing vital heavy artillery support for the Allied forces besieging Sevastopol, Albion under the command of Commander Henry Rogers joined over 50 British and French warships of various types into action. The Russians suffered heavy casualties but the Allies had failed to seriously damaged the batteries, though the Anglo-French fleet had received comparatively light casualties, with about 500 killed or wounded in total. However, the Allies had taken a beating from the Russian batteries, and Albion had been set on fire three times during the engagement. Without the assistance of the courageous tugs, she would surely have succumbed to her damage and run aground. Barrow is confirmed as having been part of the Royal Marine Brigade and served ashore, being present at the battle of Balaklava on 25th October 1854 serving with No.4 Battery during the battle.

Barrow was then posted aboard the wooden paddle slope H.M.S. Virago from 15th May 1856, and served aboard her till 29th July 1858, seeing service with the Channel Squadron, and was then posted to H.M.S. Wellington from 25th April 1859 through to 20th April 1860 when he was discharged. Additionally entitled to the Turkish Crimea Medal.
