The Blood of Brazil Medal WWII


Recommended Posts

This oval bronze medal was instituted on 5 July 1945 for Brazilian troops and civilians who served in war operations and who were injured through actions

against the enemy. The three stars on the obverse are symbolic of the three wounds received by Brigadier Sampaio at the battle of Tuiuti in 1866, against Paraguay.

Across the obverse is a scroll inscribed "Sangue Do Brasil" (Blood of Brazil). The reverse shows the globe as it is also displayed on the Brazilian national flag.

That is a very attractive medal. Is it still in use today for those who are wounded in battle? What other WW2 medals are there for Brazil?

On the left, the original version 1945, and the original box of issue. On the right, the 60's version, made by Randall, a local medal maker in Rio. This version is much more rare.
