Medal of the battle of Shanghai Japanese Sino conflict

Recommended Posts

Hello to all , dear colleagues collectors

Here is one of my last acquisitions, a rather rare french medal of the battle of Shanghai and a lot of photos witch belonged to a naval officer.

I don't know how to read chinese but i think that three inscriptions have to give the names of districts occupied by the french concession and bombarder in 1937 by mistake by the chinese troops. This medal (in silvery bronze  5.5x8cm other face smooth) commemorates the numerous deaths and injuries made by this bombardement.

On photos we can see the famous tank Renault FT send to protect the french concession and got back afterward by japanese.

            Not japanese medal...but all the same...interesting.

Regards

Patout
