Detailed below is a group I have of Belgian Great War miniatures which include service in the Belgian Congo.



Belgian group of six miniatures suspended directly, without any ribbons, from a gilt chain consisting of the following:

1.      Croix de Guerre 1914-18 – 1914-18 War Cross.

2.      Médaille de la Victoire 1914–1918 - Victory Medal 1914-18

3.      Médaille Commémorative de la Guerre 1914–1918 - 1914-18 War Medal.

4.      Médaille Commémorative des Campagnes d’Afrique 1914-1917 – Africa Campaigns Medal 1914-1917 - established 21 February 1917.

5.      Étoile de Service - Service Star – established 16 January 1889. This is a civil award for service within the Congo Free States.

6.      United Kingdom – Unknown Medal – the medal with a blank reverse and no suspension bar, appears to be of silver and is of continental manufacture – the obverse is the standard King George V issue and could represent the DCM, MM or MSM.
