Details

OBVERSE

The prominent feature of the front and obverse side of the medal is the strand of barbed wire which has entrapped a young bird, symbolic of freedom itself. These elements surmount a globe of the world indicative of the international parameters of the medal. The wording ‘International Prisoners of War’ encircles the entire design.

REVERSE

The haunting and vicious barb of the ever-present wire is used symbolically to divide the reverse side of the medal into four elements, each bearing one of the words in the phrase: ‘Intrepid against all adversity.’

RIBBON

The ribbon has a symbolised strand of barbed wire bounded on either side by black bands representing the despair of the compound. These in turn are edged by white bands representative of the second and third fences of the compound. The bands of green are reminiscent of the fields of home and finally both red edges are symbolic of the burning faith of those who were interned. This medal is supplied on a concealed single pin, ready to wear.
