About this item1953 FRENCH FOREIGN LEGION MEDAL - Awarded to Legionnaire who fought with the French Foreign Legion at the world famous battle of DIEN BIEN PHU and were decorated with the INDOCHINA EXPEDITIONARY MEDAL with scarce DIEN BIEN PHU and INDOCHINE BAR.
The Indochine Expeditionnaire Medal was created on 1 August 1953 and awarded to all soldiers who served for more than 3 months in a regular formation of the French Expeditionary Corps in Indochina (Vietnam) between 16 August 1945 and 27 July 1954.
This particular medal was awarded to the gallant troops of the world famous French Foreign Legion, the heroic defenders of that ill-fated world famous battle at Dien Bien Phu, the battle so costly in soldier's lives that it forced the French Government to negotiate an immediate surrender and the withdrawal of all its forces from Vietnam. This is very good early example of this medal, it would be hard to find a similar medal in better condition than this one.
