question on DSC document

Recommended Posts

Just saw on french TV the service at the Arc de Triomphe commemorating 100 years end of WWI. That reminded me of a question I always wanted to ask about a DSC document I have, which was awarded for this war. It is issued to Henri Lenoir, bigadier interpreter for actions on 11 Oct. 1918, exactly one month before the war ended. I bought the document long time ago in Paris, it was framed and became discolored by exposure to light, but fortunately, it was not pasted on carton.

 If my notes are correct, in total 6481 DSC's were awarded for the 1st WW and my question is, how many were awarded to the french military for this war?

Thanks and regards, Pieter
