Dutch anti-nazi medal


Recommended Posts

Nice Dutch anti-nazi war medal. No artist signature unfortunately.

 

Fought For Freedom 1940 is the legend.

 

Reverse legend I have a dodgy literal translation of, but would prefer a better one if anyone can provide one.

 

'Geweld Deed Wijken's Lands Geluk En Zaaide Lijken'

 

Anyone seen this before and have any more information?

 

cheers

That inscription "Geweld deed wijken 's lands geluk en zaaide lijken" means something like "violence made the luck (or happiness) of the country go and sowed dead bodies". Sorry, don't know anything about that particular medal ...
