    To give it its full name :

    The Commemorative Medal for the Italian Campaign 1943-1944

    Upon the creation of this silvered bronze medal on 1 April 1953, the bar "ITALIE" for the War Commemorative medal fell into disuse.   The medal was awarded, as was the bar previously, to all members of the French Expeditionary Corps (CEF = Corps Expéditionaire Français) serving in Italy and on Elba between 1 December 1943 and 25 July 1944. The CEF is perhaps best known for its participation in the Battle of Monte Cassino. The ribbon with its red and white stripes is reminiscent of the one for the French 1859 Italian Campaign Medal.
