WW1 5 Bar Victory Medal


Recommended Posts

Here is a WW1 5 bar victory medal that was in the medal group I got yesterday, not sure if this goes with the Silver Star I posted in another thread, would think it would but the picker I got the stuff from couldn't remeber what went with what, also had a BB&B Transportation corp sterling pin and a WW1 EK2 with it. But anyow, this is a pretty neat one, anyone ever see the first bar on there for "Montdidier-Noyon"? I think this is a 1st Division medal.

Here is what the historyofwar.org says about Noyon-Montdidier:

 

"The Battle of Noyon-Montdidier, 9-13 June 1918, was the fourth of General Erich von Ludenfoff's great offensives of the spring and summer of 1918 that came close to breaking the Allied lines on the western front, but instead critically damaged the fighting capacity of the German army."

USMC Sergeant Al De Vito (Chosin Reservoir Survivor) (1926-)

USA Cpl. Macedonio Leyba (Bataan Death March survivor) (1917-2007)
