Difficult to say.... Let's the expert talk.... ;)

The UNC managers decided to distroy the archives of the UNC during WW2 for security reasons (linked to Members). I would say beginning of the 1920s for the 1st type- mid 1920s - 1930s for the 2nd type. But...

Kevin in Deva. :beer:

Hi Jef,

Thanks for posting it. This is the 1st type, with Chobillon (not Ghobillon) on the reverse.

Thanks Christophe for the info. Sorry the C of Chobillon looks a G.

Never mind, have a question about other same medals . Would be grateful if you could tell me more about this medal. It seems this medal was issued after 1978.

Yours,

Jef

Hi Jef,

This one is the UNC medal for the 60 Years of WW1. I have, frankly, not anymore additional detail about it... :(

It is in bronze, with a 32mm module, and has been instituted in 1978.

Interesting. This medal is for the Journ?e du Poilu 1915, but mentions events of 1916... :o

I have to investigate about these medals I don't know... :speechless:

Ch.

You are completely right. I wasn't aware of this :speechless::speechless:
