In a word - yeah. The mini medal is kind of common. The American Red Cross stuff - not common at all, statistically. The ribbon on the Red Cross badge/ medal tended to come apart over time- being silk. The blue ribboned badge was awarded to women volunteers who completed 800 hours of service. The badge was worn on duty in uniform. Tens of thousands of women volunteered in WW1 for the Red Cross, but its estimated that only about 10,000 got the 800 hours medal.

I am not sure,but probably this medal has been already discussed in the division,but i did not go through it.

Is it a sport medal ,or is it anything different?Wikipedia does not give too much information.

As I recall thats a private commemorative version that was adopted by several towns-with different planchets and ribbons.
