French medal identification needed

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any information about this medal? What was it awarded for and how many were awarded/made? Should have been a name engraved in the center of it's reverse?

Thanks in advance!

 It is a French Lifesaving medal , Médaille des sauveteurs de la Sarthe Fais ton devoir.

Sarthe is a French region and river,  so i imagine for that area only.

Your welcome,

Here is a rather poor pic with ribbon, apparently awarded by the Civil Protection service between 1816-1913.

As for naming some are named with a date on the reverse.
