I picked up this French Fireman’s Medal up on eBay and was wondering what exactly it is, what it was awarded for, and what does it’s ribbon look like? I have been unsuccessfully in finding any reference to this medal including the OMSA database or dealer’s websites. I normally like to know what I am buying but with less than 2 hours before the auction was to end I found this medal to be too aesthetically pleasing to let it get by. Any help would be much appreciated. French Fire Fighter Medal.jpg
What a coincidence, I picked up this puppy this afternoon at a local gun show. I must admit at not knowing that much about it… Am I correct in my thinking it is a "silver medal for special distinction" as denoted by the rosette on the ribbon and the ladder behind the axes…??
Thanks for all these details about the WW2 Croix de Guerre. Our messages arrived simultaneously…
All the points you raised show that there are anough varieties or variations to allow us specific threads… Let’s see how the debate progress…
