Silvered bronze cross pattée alisée with laterally-pierced ball suspension; the face with a circular central white enamel medallion bearing a red enamel Greek (Geneva) cross, the royal crown on the upper arm, the left, right and lower arms bearing the letters ‘Ε’, ‘Ε’ and ‘Σ’ respectively (for Ελληνικός Ερυθρός Σταυρός = Hellenic Red Cross); the reverse with a plain circular medallion circumscribed ‘ΕΘΝΙΚΟΣ ΑΓΩΝ’ (National Struggle); the central medallions re-glued, hairline cracks in the white enamel of the face and a small repair to the lower left; on original ribbon, the face age-faded, with a gilt and a silvered star citation. The Decoration was created to acknowledge men and women, both Greek and foreign, who tended to the sick and wounded during the Greek civil war of 1946-1949 and rendered service to the Hellenic Red Cross and affiliated Greek societies. The Decoration is quite rare.
