Grand Cross of Homage medal - Military Order of the Ardennes


Recommended Posts

I came across this today and have never seen one before or even knew it existed - pretty interesting! Not much information about this organization online either but it appears that the only way to join was to have been a part of the Ardennes campaign and membership was closed after WWII ended.

Very unattractive in my opinion. Looks like it was designed by a committee. Should have not used the color yellow. We all know what "being yellow" ( fearful ) is. Also, US decorations should not have a crown.

I should have taken a picture of another card that was inside it, it mentions that a veteran of the Bulge had designed it and it mentions all of the medal colors and specific parts (crown etc) and the symbolism behind it. I'll post it tomorrow when I'm home.
