Issued/ Not-Issued: Issued Conflict: World War I (1914-1918)
~ Astounding WW1 DSO Belgian Group Of 31 Medals With Miniatures & Documents ~

The open mounted group includes some of the most important Belgian medals and orders including the Military Officer of the Order of Leopold, Officer of the Order of the Crown with Swords, Military Knight of the Order of Leopold with clasp and swords, Officer of the Order of Leopold II with clasp and swords, War Cross with five clasps, Bronze Medal of the Order of the Crown, etc.

There is also the British MBE, the British Distinguished Service Order and a very rare British silver Allied Subjects Medal (only 134 were issued in silver).

According to Abbott & Tamplin, authors of "British Gallantry Awards", the Allied Subjects Medal was awarded for outstanding services at great risk giving assistance to British soldiers behind enemy lines. Recipients were mainly Belgian.

The name of the soldier is unknown - the medals are unnamed - but should be traceable due to what is surely a unique combination. A kind EBayer has recognised the grouping and thinks they belonged to a Belgian spy who operated in both WW1 and WW2. Please if you know more, let us know.

Accompanying the medal group are a matching miniature group of medals (the miniature Knight of Leopold II is particularly rare with crossed swords between the crown), an armband of Order of Leopold, Belgian Senior Order, an armband of the Yser Cross, an armband of Knights With Swords in Belgian national colours, an armband of the vice president of the Knights With Swords, Verviers Section, a large brass embossed plate inscribed with the coat of arms of the "Knights With Swords", a photograph of the unknown recipient wearing the medal group and an armband, a photograph with the recipient and two other veterans near The National Federation flag, a photograph with the flag itself, two commemorative souvenir photo books and a federations magazine.

~ Condition ~

Both normal size medal set and small size set are excellent with the expected signs of wear.
The pictures, the magazine, the souvenir photo books and the armbands are excellent too.
