Hello!

I want to introduce my medal of bravery of the german 238th Inf.Div. from 1917.

The were two classes. 2nd class like this in 37mm, and a 1st class in  50mm

This one went to a Musketier Bork of 11./Inf.Rgt. 465 for bravery in the night at Roeux in june 1917

Several Divisions had these. A nice way to recognize a soldier and encourage others as well.

Which divisions do you know?

There were not a lot. I know 238 and 89 with medals like this. The 50th had a big one.

Unfortunately not, but the award certificate appears much less frequently.

That's right! I have seen them in forums or magazines but never for sale.
