Distinguished Service Cross

Postby Dave_Holden » Tue Jan 01, 2019 5:36 pm

At last I remembered to post this up - sorry for delay Paul :thumbsup:

The Distinguished Service Cross is the second highest military award that can be given to a member of the United States Army (and previously the United States Air Force), for extreme gallantry and risk of life in actual combat with an armed enemy force. Actions that merit the Distinguished Service Cross must be of such a high degree that they are above those required for all other U.S. combat decorations but do not meet the criteria for the Medal of Honour.

:thumbsup:

By the way its for sale soon %%-

Sorry Paul I don't see any maker mark or name, either on the loop or pin attachment. Why would this be?

Hi Dave, I thought I could see a mark on the brooch, apologies if not. Are there any marks on the actual medal anywhere?

I will take another look Paul but I think the mark you highlight is just a scratch.
