The Air Defence Service Medal

Flag_of_the_NetherlandsThis is a pretty little medal, created by the Dutch version of the ARP or RLB to reward good service in air raid protection between 1940 and 1945. One of my favourites, the image on the front is of a woman shielding children from overhead aircraft.
