TNA podcast: Royal Naval medals: an introduction

This 36 minute podcast of a talk from April 2009 discusses the Royal Naval medal rolls held by The National Archives in record series ADM 171.

Speaker William Spencer from TNA, author of Medals: The Researcher's Guide, explains how to interpret the most commonly used codes and abbreviations found in them. He shows the use of medal rolls to locate other records.

When I checked none of the illustrative material he used and referred to is posted making following this presentation rather heavy weather sailing.
