    Default Hungarian post WW1 Commemorative Medal for combatants (Haborús Emlékérem kardokkal és sisakkal)

    Hi All, here's quite a common medal many of you may have come across in you travels. It's in silvered bronze medal with ‘PRO DEO ET PATRIA’ (Latin = For God and Country) on the back. The medal was instituted by the Hungarian Government on 14th Nov. 1929 & awarded to those who had participated in World War I. There were two versions, one for combatants (this one) and one for non-combatants which does not have the crossed swords or helmet in the design,

    Cheers,

    Richard.

    A common, but nice medal.

    Allow me to add - just for additional information - that the rarer non-combatants' version of the medal also had a different ribbon, as seen in the center of this ribbon bar, flanked by the ribbons for the Austrian and Bulgarian non-combatants' WWI commemorative medals:
