We were so excited to discover this French WWI medal on a recent sojourn to France. The top has a stately Castle and the representation of the angel protecting the soldiers is mesmerizing. The left side has July 14th, (in French) the Bastille Day in France and the right side is dated 1916.

Gloriously depicting a winged angel flying over soldiers to aide then in battle, the rear depicts Paris coat of arms, surrounded by leaves.
