At 2.40am on the morning of 7 May 1945 the German High Command surrendered at Rheims, north east of Paris effectively bringing to an end the dreams of the Third Reich and introducing a state of peace to Europe. It was however, not until mid August of that year before peace was to descend in the Far East and Pacific war zone with the surrender of the Japanese nation.
Miniature Restoration of Peace Medal
To mark the final settlement of peace in Europe and the Pacific and Far East this very special commemorative medal has been struck to acknowledge a truly allied effort which made these victories possible. This is the miniature.
Two Historic Events
These two historic events had long been consumate goals of the Allies but they were only achieved after much sacrifice and loss of life over a total six year period. The ultimate victories were the achievements of the fighting forces with dedicated support of the essential war-effort workers throughout the Allied countries.
This medal is supplied on a single pin ready to wear.
