Circular gilt bronze medal with integral bar for ribbon suspension; the face with a map of France centrally from which radiate six sets of rays imposed on a vertical chain with rectangular links, circumscribed ‘REPUBLIQUE FRANÇAISE’ above; the reverse with the same vertical chain, now broken, dated ‘1940’ in small numerals and ‘1945’ in large numerals centrally, circumscribed ‘MEDAILLE DE LA DEPORTATION ET DE L’INTERNEMENT.’, with Paris Mint cornucopia bronze assay mark and signed ‘MAB’ (for Arthus Bertrand of Paris); on original ribbon for Internees (that for Deportees having vertical stripes) with gilt bronze ‘INTERNE’ bar.

The Medal was instituted on 9 September 1948 to recognise those deported or interned for political reasons during World War II and could only be awarded to those in possession of a Deportees or Political Internees card. In 1955, the award of the medal was extended to those who had suffered a similar fate during World War I.
