Miniature circular silver medal on integral oak leaf suspension with laterally-pierced ball; the face with a female head and shoulders facing left and wearing a laurel-wreathed helmet crowned with a cockerel, representative of the French Republic; the reverse with a circular central medallion with beaded edge, circumscribed ‘SOCIÉTÉ D’ENCOURAGEMENT AU DÉVOUEMENT’; diameter 12.35mm (0.48 inch); on original ribbon. The Society was founded in 1910 as the ‘Société Républicaine d’Encouragement au Devouement’ with the aim of giving an example of devotion to duty and public service, to defend moral values and promote initiatives to encourage bravery, service and altruism and especially the defence of the vulnerable, particularly young people. It awards honorific decorations to recognise accomplishments in these areas. The Society later became the ‘Société d’Encouragement au Devouement’, then the ‘Société Nationale d’Encouragement au Devouement’ and finally ‘Encouragement au Devouement’.
