    Journee Du Poilu

    Hi Guys, not a military awarded medal, but a fascinating WW1 historic medal from France. This Journee Du Poilu is dated on the reverse side 25-26 Decembre , sadly these are fairly worthless, but important historically nevertheless.

    Nice. I'm assuming it's for something similar to the US Memorial day celebration?

    Thanks for looking, I assume so, these were sold I believe to raise funds for injured French soldiers;)
