Title Commemorative French Resistance enamel pin
Nationality French
Period c 1946
Price £30.00

This is an official award for a member of the French Resistance, with the Cross of Lorraine, the great symbol of France's resistance to the Germans in both wars, but specifically in the 2nd, together with other images of regional insignia. There is '269' punched on the reverse.

These little shields would have been given out shortly after the war to commemorate individual service in resistance units.

The enamel is damaged on the lower left-hand corner of the shield, but otherwise the piece is in quite good condition.

Yes, arrived safe and sound, very nice, and very interesting. Have a couple of friends in the States slavering over the pictures, one of them loves searching old lists, etc. If I can tie it down more definitely will let you know.

Just a short note to let you know that I have collected the Police fur cap this morning from the Post Office. I am really happy with it, and for sure I will give a thumbs-up to your service. This was the first item I ever bought from you, and I hope it will not be the last.
