A belgian commemorative medal of the 1914-1918 war
*
established by royal decree on july 21, 1919, the medal of the 1914-1918 war was awarded to all belgian veterans of wwi, who were also eligible for the interallied victory medal.
*
struck from bronze, the medal is uniquely shaped in triangular form with rounded sides. the obverse of the medal displays the profile of a belgian soldier, wearing an m15 adrian adorned with laurel leaves. the top of the triangle shows the belgian lion with an oak leaf branch to its left, and laurel leaves to its right. the corners at base of the obverse displays the years of 1914 and 1918.
the reverse bears a royal crown at the top surrounded by the same branches as the lion. the wording at the center and base of the reverse reads “commemorative medal of the 1914-1918 campaign” in french and dutch respectively. the ribbon displays the colors of belgium, with two red stripes forming the sides, and a single yellow stripe in the center, separated by thin black borders.
*
7 distinctive devices exist which were affixed to the ribbon of the medal. a silver bar would be issued to veterans who spent a year at the frontlines, with additional silver bars issued for each additional 6 months. a gold bar could also be worn in lieu of 5 silver bars.
a crown would be issued to volunteer soldiers, a red enameled cross for each wound received in combat, and an anchor for those also awarded the maritime decoration. in great rarity, there were additionally two clasps awarded to belgian serving in the expeditionary corps to russia (one for 1916-1917 service, the other for 1916-1918). these clasps should be regarded as holding extreme value, as only 444 belgians served in this capacity. approximately 350,000 commemorative medals were issued after the war.

this lovely write up was stolen from @militariacollector i hope you enjoyed! this specific example has a gold bar and 3 silver bars plus a wound cross! be sure to follow for more awesome militaria! —————————————————————

Up on the bench is another large disc music box motor. this time it’s a penny in the slot symphonion, it’s had lots of use and subsequently lots of wear in the gears and drive wheel. this is very similar in size and style of the polyphon motor but with a few little changes here and there, most notably the governor fan blades. this one has fine curved pieces of spring steel instead of the polyphon’s sprung brass plates, different but the same result!
