The medal was created on 16 February 1946 to be awarded to those, whether citizens of Belgium or not, who entered the Belgian armed forces before 8 May 1945 for the duration of the war. The award was later extended to Belgian volunteer entrants into the British Royal Air Force and Royal and Merchant Navies.
