    Default British War Medal for World War I issued to a Belgian

    I came by thise medal groupe probably belonging to the same person.

    As I was intrested in starting a collection of English medals, but didn't know anything about them.
    So faith gave me a theme; collecting British medals that where given to Belgians.
    Here is my first one.



    Still have to research who the man was, any help is appreciated!!

    Medals to agents are always very desirable. Nice to have one to your home nation. Very nice find.

    Around 2,300 or so British War Medals were issued to declared Belgian Agents so proportionally you can see it is quite a rare medal.
