Description: Primrose League Star Medal, awarded for outstanding contribution: EF in box with ribbon. The Primrose League was set up by Lord Randolph Churchill (father of Winston Churchill) in the memory of Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli (1804-1881) in 1883. On the 19th April every year Primrose Day was celebrated in remembrance of Disraeli, because Primroses were said to be his favourite flowers. Queen Victoria sent two wreaths of Primroses on the occasion of Disraeli’s funeral. There is also an oil painting titled Primrose Day, 1885 by Frank Bramley in the Tate Collection
