France Upper Silesia 1920-1922 Campaign medal

Written by

French Inter war medal in Bronze for the Upper Silesia (Haute Silesia) campaign. In the post first world war years a plebiscite, admistered by the allied powers, was established in Upper Silesia whilst political discussions went on to award to the territory to either Germany or Poland.

The medal is made from Bronze and although considered a French medal (predominately awarded to French armed forces) the medal was actually issued by the Inter Allied government of Upper Silesia. This is recognised by the raised lettering on the reverse “COMMISSION INTERALLIEE DE GOUVERNEMENT ET DE PLEBISCITE” 1920 – 1922 dates in relief.
