    Hi there !

    I would like show to you my french decorations.

    First of all I'm going to start with my favourite medal, this is the honnor legion medal, the most important order in France. I bought it in París, on a antique's market known as "marche aux puces":

    Hi again !

    Here my last two medals.

    These two are WWII medals.

    French Resistance medal

    This medal was added to the people and soldiers who fought with the french resistance against the german invasion.
