Circular bronze medal with loop and ribbon bar for suspension; the face with a detachment of Latvian Soldiers in line with lowered rifles with bayonets fixed, a radiant rising sun and a Latvian village with churches in the background, signed ‘ZIM. STROMBERIS’ and ‘GRAV. BERGS’; the reverse with three radiant stars denoting the three historic provinces of Latvia - Kurzeme with Zemgale, Vidzeme and Latgale (Courland with Semigallia, Livland and Latgallia), inscribed ‘PAR LATVIJU’ (for Latvia) and dated ‘1918 1928’; on replaced correct ribbon with crossed swords.
The Medal was created in 1928 to be awarded to Latvian citizens and others who served in the national army during War of Liberation from 18 November 1918 to 11 August 1920 and to those who supported them.
An increasingly hard-to-find medal, especially with swords.
