Hello,

Does anyone know if there is a name list for the recipients of the Liberation medal of the city of Metz? Or which USA unit(s) did receive this medal?

Cheers

Sampo

Hello, 

a gold book (livre d'or) existe, j think it's deposed at achives municipales (archives of the town of Metz) précedently at the town hall. 

A priori, all soldiers of the XX° corps can received this médal but just some a few part have receveid the médal  after a herself request. Some U.S. VIP have receive and also the flag of the XX° corps bear this médal.

 The requests ar'nt received after 1980.

scuse my poor english please. 

all the best. Patrick

Hi Patrick,

Thank you for the information, and the information you have sent me. There are 675 American recipients of this medal, is there anyone who has the names or partial name-lists of these recipients? I am probably looking at an officer at least captain or more.
