The French Croix de Guerre (War Cross) was instituted in 1915 as a means of formally recognizing acts of heroism performed by individuals (of any of the Allied powers) during the First World War. The bronze star on the ribbon indicates the medal was awarded to an individual who had been mentioned in despatches at Regiment or Brigade level This medal is one of only a small number of foreign awards that are allowed to be worn by British servicemen who received it. Unlike British medals which tended to be issued post-war, the Croix de Guerre was issued in the field or close to the time of the event which is why they have dated anywhere between 1914 & 1918. Being dated 1915, this medal was an early issue.
