    France: Medal of Honour for Acts of Devotion , Interior Ministry issue ,1863


    Recommended Posts

    I have an example of this medal , issue of Napoleon III by Barre , 27mm in Silver named to " Ollier claude 1863 " .

    I cannot determine from the naming whether or not this was a military recipient.

    Would citation and / or gazetting details be findable anywhere?

    Unfortunately I do not speak French ( my school only offered Latin ) and would thus struggle with sources in French

    Numis ,there were no diferences between the medals awarded to civilians and the ones awarded to soldiers . the Medaille was created in 1820 by King Louis XVIII to reward any person who with risk of his own life saved the life of another person or persons .
