Hanging from a 7mm round textured cable chain, the iconic imagery shows St. George on horseback, thrusting his lance at a dragon with the inscription: "S. GEORGRJS. EQUITUM PATRONUS." (St. George, protector of knights). The other side has a ship with a taut sail on a rough sea and Christ asleep on the deck with two terrified apostles. A wind blows through a small cloud into the sail. The inscription: "IN TEMPESTATE SECURITAS. (Safety, or security in the storm) a prayer of confidence that All Will Be Well. Medal origin is Barcelona, Spain.
