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.

Wikipedia sources  "Harries, Meirion; Susie Harries (1994). 'Soldiers of the Sun: The Rise and Fall of the Imperial Japanese Army.' New York: Random House. ISBN 0-679-75303-6"

A Chinese friend of mine translated the (Chinese) characters to "China War Memorabilia".
