    The fire cross is the medal that was given to all who had been under enemy fire.
    Depending of where the medal was made, you will find 3 different types, with small differences in the details.

    The medal commemorating the African campaigns during WWI was given to all soldiers participating .
    A silver one for European and a brons medal for natives.
    I only have a original ribbon and a polyester cast I made from one, and no descent picture for the momment.
    A very nice medal, but the most you get to see are 1970'ties productions made on the original die.And quiet expensive.

    Before starting with the WWII Belgian medals, I just want to show you a document that I just came by!
    It is not realy a official document, just something commemorating the owners action ( a Yser fighter!)during WWI by citiation of the medals he earned!
    Note the document was given to a Flemish citizen and the main part is in French!
