    French Mini medal bar

    Uffz. Rohleder

    Recommended Posts

    I got this mini medal bar today. Looks like a civilian to me.

    1. Europe Cross

    2. Encourage Public Commander

    3. Encourage Public Knight

    4. Belgium Order of the Crown - Golden Palms


    Anyone know what are those Encourage Public Medals for? Anyway did anyone know who was eligible for such awards in common.


    reverse - "selfmade"

    First 3 are 'private' awards, usually buy your own diploma and insignia.

    See https://www.comitedentente.be/membres/confédération-européenne-des-anciens-combattants-c-e-a-c/,  https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Croix_du_combattant_de_l'Europe  and  https://www.encouragement-public.org/  and related sites for details.

    Last is  an official BE award usually for long service.  Given substance of the first three, perhaps self-awarded.  .
