Miniature bronze medal in the form of an isosceles triangle with convex sides, with laterally-pierced loop for ribbon suspension; the face with the helmeted head of a soldier facing left, dated ‘1914’ and ‘1918’ below left and right respectively, signed ‘E.J. De Bremaecker’; the reverse inscribed in French and in Flemish ‘Medal Commemorative of the Campaign 1914-1918’ surmounted by a crown with oak and laurel branches to either side; height 18.29mm (0.72 inch); age-toned; on possibly replaced correct ribbon. Instituted by Royal Decree on 21 July 1919, the medal was intended to ‘attest in an apparent manner the merit of Belgian citizens who were in the ranks of the armed forces in the war of 1914-1918’ and was awarded for service in the Belgian army between 1st August 1914 and 11th November 1918. It was also awarded to foreign nationals, such as members of the French medical corps who served in Belgian military hospitals. The medal is rare in miniature.
