    It's the British War Medal for 14-18, and it is made of silver. These were widely issued, but a lot of them were melted down as junk silver when the value of silver went through the roof in the 1970s. The edge is the serial number, rank, name and organization of the recipient, in this case Gunner G.J.Johnson of the Royal Artillery.

    The box, by the way, is not original to the medal.

    Thank you for your messages. I wasn't thinking one day when I got the medals out and mixed up the boxes.
