Specification
Belgium: WW2 Commemorative Medal, 1940-
1945, with Crossed Swords for Combatants 
of the 1940 defensive campaign and clasp 
"Winterbeek".
The clasp was awarded to the members of the 
Piron Brigade who took part (attached to
 British XXX Corps) in Operation Market 
Garden, the unsuccesful allied attempt to 
establish a bridgehead over the River Rhine, 
creating thus an invasion route into northern 
Germany (17-25 Sep. 1944). 
The area of Winterbeek (a stream near 
Leopoldsburg) hosted the headquarters in 
advance of Operation Market Garden. 
On the obverse: The Belgian Lion between 
the arms of a "V" (for Victory).
On the reverse: "Commemorative Medal of 
the War 1940-1945", in French and Flemish.
The medal was established in 1946.
