Medal of Honour for Air Army Health Services, Silver Medal (stamped "H.PONSCARME")
Estimated market value:
The Medal of Honour for Air Army Health Services was created on May 18, 1948, but was later replaced by the Medal of Honour for Military Health Services on August 30, 1962.
It was awarded to military personnel, civil servants of the Air Army, and all others who contributed to health services in the Air Army. It was also awarded for devotion to the sick or wounded outside of periods of epidemics.
It is uncertain what distinctions were made between the grades.
The obverse inscription translates to “French Republic,” and the reverse inscription translates to “Ministry of National Defense, Devotion, Air Health Services.”
