Resistance-SOE-Sylvestre Farmer Network

Recommended Posts

I have recently happened upon a second variation of the medal awarded for this network. Originally I had read there were two versions of this cross, a silvered-brass version and a brass version but they both displayed the same suspension. This recent acquisition has a different suspension which corresponds to the miniature versions I have previously seen on the web. I struggled to find any crosses similar to the second suspension but eventually located one in a photograph of medals awarded to Jaques Neyme at http://polices.mobiles.free.fr/biographies/bio_neyme.html .

Does anyone else have anything to confirm of contradict my views?

This network is a very interesting one in relation to the SOE and Captain Michael Trotobas whose biography I am currently reading.

Here are some links for anyone who is interested.

Sorry I can't manage to upload the reverse of the first picture or comparison pictures, probably too big I guess.
