French commemorative medal for voluntary service in the Free French Forces

Recommended Posts

Hi Gents

Here are 2 different versions of the medal, the left with Paris Mint markings on the reverse. Can anyone please provide any information on the origins of the smaller version on the left please? I have seen versions like this marked with metal on the top of the suspension but this does not appear to have any markings (that I have noticed).

Cheers

Dave
