    Hey Marius,


    looks like a "fraternelle" medal. Those are unofficial medals made, by and for ,groups of old soldiers.

    This "group" apparently started in 1941 and commemorated it in 1961.

    Just need to figure out what FI/OF and PA/MP stands for. One must be Flemish and the other French.

    My guess would be a resistant group initiated from some other organisation.

    The light blue of the ribbon, makes me think "Congo", but it don't matches with the "FI/OF and PA/MP".....

    No great values accorded to these medals, they can go from 10 to 30 euro....

    Thank you for your help.

    Based on your informations i found on internet the following data

     WW2 Commemorative Medal of the Armed Partisans of the
    Independence Front (Patriotic Militia) Resistance Group, 1941 - 1961.
    The medal was issued to the surviving veterans of the Group, in 1961
    to commemorate the 20th Anniversary of its foundation, in 1941.
    On the reverse the initials: F.I. - O.F. and P.A. - M.P. (for Independence
    Front and Armed Partisans in French and Flemish respectively)
    The Group was founded in 1941 and engaged in Resistance acts
    against the Germans in the occupied Belgium. In 1944 it was renamed
    to "Patriotic Militia".


    If someone is intrestead on the medal please feel free to contact me.
