    Rick, once this one was introduced, it effectively replaced the earlier award which was no longer issued. No one could possess both.


    Actually, according to the official ordinances, no one could wear both. I have seen multiple instances of award documents showing the same sailor/soldier receiving both. Peterson made a translation error. The later medal is really a revised 1914-5 War Medal. If one had both, only the later medal could be worn.
