Fatiche di guerra (again)


And about three years after my first post about the fatiche di guerra” distinction, established by royal decree number 641 of 21 May 1916 and circular #29450, dated 17 September 1917 (this distinction was given to soldiers who had spent 1 year in the War zone), here’s another picture of the diploma. This is probably a less known version of this diploma, I don’t know if this variant was awarded to French or British soldiers. This diploma was issued after April 5, 1918, as it specifies the rules linked to the stars shown on the ribbon. As the soldier had spent 1 year on the front line, a star was added to the ribbon.
