    Are you sure this is Chinese? Perhaps it's from France's First war ally, Japan?

    According to Taprell Dorling's 'Ribbons and Medals' Japan issued a 'War With Germany 1914-18' medal, but no image is given. 

    Apparently (according to Wikipedia) " ... tentative plans were made to send an expeditionary force of between 100,000 and 500,000 men to France ... " but these plans came to nothing.
