Circular bronze medal with loop for ribbon suspension; the face with the full-length full-face figure of a Volunteer of the Flying Column in typical 1917-1921 outfit, the word ‘éire’ in Gaelic script centrally, two letters to either side, the arms of Munster, Ulster, Connacht and Leinster upper left, upper right, lower left and lower right respectively, inscribed at the base ‘CODAGH NA SAOIRSE’ (The Struggle for Independence) in Gaelic script; the reverse with a palm leaf to the left; on original ribbon with decorated bronze suspension bar with pin for wear.

The Medal was instituted in January 1941 and issued with ‘COMRAC’ (Struggle) bar to those who had seen active military service and without, as in this example., to ‘persons whose service is not deemed to be active military service, but who were members of Oglaigh na hEireann (Irish Republican Army), Fianna Eireann, Cumann na mBan or the Irish Citizen Army for the three months ended on the 11th of July 1921’.

The Medal was manufactured by P. Quinn Ltd. of Dublin. It is quite rare.
