1811 Procession of Loyal Britons to Tipton Church, Great Britain.

This is a fun medal. It's huge for the time and very heavy yet someone hefted it and thought "I'll drill a hole in this and wear it around". The British lion hanging out behind the King looks like he just ate one of the loyal Britons and the King looks like his arm is about to fall off. Britannia is holding out an olive branch but with all those ships and rocks she probably should have a big lamp instead.
