1 pointHello, these are medals and badges of the french indochina war, from 1945 to 1953. Nice lot, and seems complete. The red star stands for wounds in combat. One thing is a bit weird to me, the first medal is for prisoners of the WW1 : perhaps the father of the man who won the indochina lot ?
1 pointHi Peter, yes, all your medals are the 1st variation, awarded during the war or short after it. it's easy to know, just check the ring, if it's round and soldered (2 pieces, medal+ring) is the 1st var. 2nd and 3th variations have the ring as part of the medal (1 piece). Best regards! Victor
