When was this one given out? It's been eons since I handled any, but the ones I did were WW1 and if I am recalling correctly, seemed to be made out of real silver. I don't remember what was behind the trophy suspension, thoiugh, and from the several you've posted beer.gif that seems an area that would be most helpful in dating approximate age of these?

Good thread Darrel.

The link you show is interesting, but from my grasp of French I understand that there were different typres of suspension arrangement and minor design details depending on the manufacturer of the pre-1950s type.

Does anyone have any more information on the various types and how to date them?

Specifically, what are the features to identify the type(s) issued for 1914-1918 service or earlier?

Many thanks in advance,
