    Norwegian Allied medals

    Recommended Posts

    Hello !

    This is my favorite of the Norwegian Allied War Medals .

    "Krigskorset med sverd" Norwegian War Cross with Swords . This shows a compare between Spinx of London made crosses and Thostrup of Oslo , Norway made crosses . The "Norwegian" made cross is made after the War ended . Spinx cross has the Sword on ribbon with prongs on back , and prongs showing on back of ribbon . Thostrup has the Sword sawn on the ribbon .

    Very nice Jan. These are very often seen on Commonwealth Medal Groupings (especially Campaign Stars and Service / War Medals).
