French made Allied Medals

Recommended Posts

Hi,

do any of our French members know which British gallantry awards were made by French makers in WW1 and WW2 ? Either for French awardees, Stationed troops or a collectors market. I am thinking Military Cross, MM, DCM...

Thanks

Chris

Such orders and medals were made to serve as replacements for lost badges or to be arranged for wear on parade uniforms.

I believe most of them were struck in solid silver with the appropriate french hallmark. None of the medals have swivelling ribbon bars.

All the french made reproductions of British awards and medals that I have come across were for WW1. Whether replacement badges for WW2 were manufactured is open to debate.
