Specification
FRANCE: WW2 Colonial medal with the rare 
clasps "Coree" (Korea) and "Extreme Orient" 
(Far East). 
This is the rarest type of the medal - the 
unifacial type by Mourgeon. 
The "Coree" clasp was issued for participation 
in the Korean War 1950 - 1953, under the UN
mandate. 
A total of 3421 Frenchmen fought in Korea 
under the command of General Raoul Magrin-
Vernerey  and  distinguished themselves at 
the battles of Wonju, Chipyong-ni and 
Heartbreak Ridge.
The "Extreme Orient" (Far East) clasp was 
instituted in 1946 and was awarded to both 
military and civilian personnel who fought in 
Indochina either against the Japanese forces 
(1945) or during the Indochina Colonial Wars 
(1945-1954).
The Colonial medal was established in 1893 
and was awarded to military personnel who 
operated in French protectorates and 
colonies.
In total there are established 52 official and 
63 unofficial bars for the colonial medal. 
The award was replaced by the Overseas 
Medal in 1962.
