History


This Medal was awarded by the Governor-General of Indochina to members of the Native Guard for 15 years of meritorious service. A maximum of 600 medals were awarded annually to native members of the Guard in addition to the maximum 80 medals that were awarded to European staff.

There are three versions of the Medal. The first version has a reverse inscription that translates to “Honour and Fatherland, Native Guard,” the second version has a reverse inscription that translates to “Honour and Fatherland, Civil Guard,” and the third version has a reverse inscription that translates to “Indochinese Guard.” All three versions have an obverse inscription that translates to “French Indochina.”

It is uncertain when this Medal ceased to be awarded.
