"One of the most revered and desirable gallantry medals of World War II.

This Rare Medal was normally awarded to foreign civilians for their actions "In their furtherance of the British Commonwealth in the Allied cause" during the Second World War. This medal was mainly awarded to persons engaged in resistance against the German Nazi regime and particularly to those who assisted, at great peril to their own lives, in the escape of British Airmen shot down in enemy occupied territories.

Many were awarded to the brave and selfless members of the famous Belgian Resistance organisation known as "The Rocket Line" who assisted shot down RAF aircrew in escaping from occupied Belgium & France.

The Rocket Line's "clandestine activity' was immortalised in the famous BBC TV series "THE SECRET ARMY" at the Cafe Candide.

A  SUPERB "KING A  SUPERB "KING Only about 3,200 medals were issued. All were issued 'unnamed' to ensure the continuance of total secrecy and confidentiality of those involved in some of the most desperate and 'permanently delicate' resistance situations of WW2.
