    Thanks Ade, were these awarded for anything other than acts of valor?

    No , if you mean long service. It's a pure combat award. O well I have seen one awarded to a brave cook , but it's a king valour to manage to feed solders under the rapid enemy fire

    Thank you ph3s. I suppose with a date of 1945 this ought to make for a good research project.

    It's original, and indeed probably a 1945 combat award. Quite a few of these were awarded for wounds received during the war (mostly in the 3.3 mil serial number range), but with your serial number I think you're safe.

    Yes! The auction gods have granted me this medal!

    They let me have this one, too. I think they came together:
