"Kilk ir kelk!" means "Rise and Raise".

In orginates from political pamphlet Credo. Kilk ir kelk! by Povilas Višinskis that was published in May 1901.

I guess this is some kind of unofficial medal for those who corresponds to the credo postulated at obverse.

By the way, the original credo of Povilas Višinskis.

"Mūsų idealas: laisva, neprigulminga Lietuva, nusikračiusi nuo svetimų ir savų despotų, pamynusi po kojų tamsybes, išvien su kitomis liuosomis tautomis rūpinasi apie pagerinimą savo ekonomiškojo būvio ir žengia pirmyn“.

This medals appears on the market with and without ribbon bars.

Usually ribbon bars bear the names of different localities.

Second variation of this medal is known (unnumbered, unmarked, with pebbled reverse and different ribbon)

When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
