GREECE - help identifying medals

Recommended Posts

Hello  Gentlemen,

Can anybody help me identify the four Greek medals in attachment.

As I do not speak Greek, can anyone translate the legends?

Thank you in advance.

All the best,

Jean-Sam.

1st - Greek Victory Medal https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inter-Allied_Victory_Medal_(Greece)

2nd - War Cross 1917 version https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_Cross_(Greece)

3rd - Cross of Valor https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross_of_Valour_(Greece)

4th - ?

Unfortunately I don't speak Greek either so I can't translate the text.

The Greek is basically the title of each medal

Διασυμμαχικόν Μετάλλιον Νίκης = Allied Victory Medal

Πολεμικός Σταυρός = War Cross (3rd Class)

Αριστείον Ανδρείας = literally 'Award for Bravery', usually called the Cross of Valour.

The fourth one is the silver Royal Foundation medal.

The Royal Foundation used to issue prizes mainly to local authorities for their contribution to the national development.

They are not state decorations.

The small star device on the silver cross of valor is really strange. I've never seen something like this.
