Description Woman, bare foot, holding a tall trident in her right hand - leaning it against her shoulder - and a wreath in her outstretched left hand. She wears a military, tuffed helmet, with a lion on it. At her feet is a lion, tail bending behind him, mouth slightly open, showing teeth. Both lion and woman look towards the right of the medal. There are two dolphins in the background, and a sheath of wheat in the bottom right hand corner. At the very bottom of the image, under the lion, is another small lion, next to a feathered wing. The plaque with Aldwyn Remington Gordon's name is the right of this scene.
