Award to Percy James, 1st Air Mechanic, No. 16 Balloon Company, Royal Flying Corps for action on 8 Dec 1917. Slip inside medal award box states that this action appeared in the London Gazette, 23 July 1918. Croix de Guerre is housed in a silk lined box; both award and box are in very good condition. The fancy original award document (good condition, light wrinkles) is loose mounted in a new frame and is numbered 27292; shipping costs higher because of the large frame. RFC Balloon awards are quite rare and seldom encountered.
