Partisan Brigade medal Czechoslovakia 1945

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm a new member of the GMIC; This being my first post.

I recently bought this Partisan medal that I would love to know more about. If there is anyone that can tell more of the history of the Brigade the medal was awarded to, their exploits, and the correct ribbon, I would be most grateful.

Here is the medal, featuring a wonderful image of a Czech wolf dog on the reverse.
