Light bronze cross pattée with stippled arms, with crossed swords between the arms, on scroll and laterally-pierced ball suspension; the face with a circular central medallion bearing a female head facing right representing the French Republic within a ring inscribed ‘REPUBLIQUE FRANÇAISE’ and decorated with laurel leaves below; the reverse with a circular central medallion with the dates ‘1914’ and ‘1918’; on replaced correct ribbon mounted for wear in the French style and with bronze star citation.

The award was created on 8 April 1915 and attributed to military personnel who received an individual citation for feats of arms. The 1914-1918 version was awarded up to 1920 to ensure that military dead, wounded and missing in action were properly recognised. Stars were for citations at corps, divisional, brigade or regimental level.
