VVL&ESM: Capt Twycross received his award at a large gathering of volunteers at Melbourne Town Hall on Wednesday evening 26 January 1881. The medals were presented by Colonel Anderson who read the following memo: 'The honour of presenting the first issue of the medals in question having devolved on the officer commanding the local forces, it is his duty to provide against mis-conceptions, which might result from a verbal address. On an occasion of so much interest and importance to the volunteer force, a clear understanding should exist as to mode in which volunteers are to prefer claims, and manner in which the medals are to be awarded. In G.O., No.77/80, it was intimated to the force that the medals would issue. After consultation with several experienced officers, the 'conditions' published on the 20th August, 1880, under the heading of 'Conditions for the issue to officers and men serving under the Volunteer Statute, 1865, of a medal 'for long and efficient service' were promulgated, and also printed on the reverse side of the 'forms' supplied to the commanding officers for claimants.' The recipients then came forward and were cheered heartily as they mounted the platform where Col Anderson pinned the medal to each man's chest.
