    Default My WW2 French Medal Collection ("in progress" )

    Hi,
    I would like to share the french medals i have on my collection.
    One is from Vichy period (The Combatant Cross 1939-1940).
    I know that its not complete.
    This collection is in progress. The problem is that i also collect
    other kind of militaria from the WWII period (Uniforms, Headgear,
    Edged weapons, etc..). So, the advance is slow.
    Please, i would appreciate some comments and/or sugestions.
    Thanks, for looking.

    Regards

    Fabio

    i know this thread is 5 years old, but i shall revive it now with a question..

    What is the difference between the "Frenc Combatant's Cross" (croix du combattant) of WW1 and other combat scenarios?
    As wikipedia quotes, the Medal was awarded not only for service in WW1, but also for other wars.
    Does the ribbon change everytime ( like on your beautiful Vichy Medal)?

    I leave the Wiki-quote below, as it is quite interesting:

    A decree of January 29, 1948 states that the provisions of the 1930 Act relating to the allocation of the combatant's card and the Combatant's Cross were applicable to participants of the 1939-1945 war. The law of 18 July 1952 extended the benefit of the award of the Croix du combattant for Indochina and Korea.

    The law of December 9, 1974 extended the award of the Combatant's Cross to operations in North Africa between 1 January 1952 and July 2, 1962. More recently, a decree of January 12, 1994 opened le carte du combattant holder (hence of the Combatant's Cross) to those who participated in operations in Cambodia, Cameroon, Persian Gulf, Lebanon, Madagascar, the Suez Canal, Somalia, Central African Republic, Chad, Yugoslavia, Zaire and Iraq.
