Miniature gilt bronze medal with laterally-pierced ball suspension; the face with a French M15 Adrian helmet imposed on laurel leaves, inscribed below ‘UNIS COMME AU FRONT’ (United as at the Front), circumscribed ‘UNION NATIONALE DES COMBATTANTS’; the reverse inscribed ‘M. A BIEN MÉRITÉ DE L’U.N.C. (Well merited from the U.N.C.) within a wreath of oak and laurel; diameter 15.03mm (0.59 inch); on replaced correct ribbon. The medal is awarded for merit and for long and dedicated service to the Union. The concept of the Union came from convalescent soldiers during 1917 and on 25 November 1918 its statutes were lodged, being published on 11 December 1918. The government recognised it as a society of public interest on 20 June 1920. Membership is open to former combatants in all conflicts from all branches of the French armed forces and their widows and to former and currently serving military. Its aims are to preserve the interests of France, peace and friendship between peoples and the remembrance of former servicemen.
