ROYAL HUMANE SOCIETY BRONZE MEDALS FOR 1863

Prior to 1864 the RHS Annual Reports do not contain a list of those awarded the Bronze Medal or Clasp. The following roll with additional information has therefore been extracted by reference only to the appropriate original manuscript Case Book by Peter Helmore.
