Product Information

Greece: Silver medal of the Hellenic Red Cross, type of 1924. 
This is the rarest type of the award, by Eleftherios Kelaides, in its 
even rarer box of issue marked in the interior of the lid "El. Kelaides, 
Artist).
On the obverse: A female figure holding a child and facing a wounded 
soldier.
Circumscribed: "ΕΛΛΗΝΙΚΟΣ ΕΡΥΘΡΟΣ ΣΤΑΥΡΟΣ" (Hellenic Red Cross).
The medal was instituted in 1924 (following WW1 and the unsuccessful 
Asia Minor Campaign) to be awarded for conspicuous service in the 
ranks of the Hellenic Red Cross. 
The medal was awarded to both men and women. 
The first initiative for the foundation of the Hellenic Red Cross took 
place in 1865 as the Kingdom of Greece participated in the 1st Geneva 
Convention. 
The Hellenic Red Cross was officially founded in 1877, with the active 
support of Queen Olga and it was recognized, the same year, by the 
International Red Cross Committee. 
Ever since,it continues its humanitarian efforts both domestically 
and abroad whenever and wherever its aid is needed.
