bronze medal

Recommended Posts

All I can deduce thus far it that I think it is a Romanian medal. And based on the multiple repeat punch engravings, it may have been a trial strike. 

Romania was a signatory and ratifier at the Paris Peace Treaties, 10 February 1947. There may be a connection here since the medal refers to Victory.

This design was used on a range of sporting trophies, frequently with a suspension loop. Although Victorii is a Romanian word, in this case it is merely a case of Deco styling. I would suggest that K. A. R. stands for King's African Rifles.
