Hampshire Friendly Society
We have not had time to research the Hampshire Friendly Society. It was undoubtedly proud of the fact that the king, George IV, had become their patron, and had issued this attractive medallion to advertise the fact. If anyone knows more about the society, we would appreciate hearing from you, so that we can share the information with others here.
