WWI Belgian Croix de Guerre & Certificate to RFC Balloon Mechanic - 1917


Regular price $235.00

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.
