The Restoration of Peace medal features the world glove in its centre, detailed in a frosted finish on a mirror polished background. The domed globe features the African, European and Pacific land masses, divided by ‘V’ for victory. Rising from the centre is the date 1945, to commemorate the year that peace was restored. Surrounding the globe are the words: ‘A Time for Peace’. This recalls Neville Chamberlain’s famous words in 1938: ‘I believe it is peace for our time’.
The reverse features a simple wreath on a brilliant polished background, surrounding the words: ‘For all who strived for Peace’. The warm golden appearance of the medal, adds prestige and to this commemorative’s significance; reflecting the exceptional resolve which brought about victory and restored peace.
The outer bands of rich claret represent life with the centre band of gold representing the dawn of a new day. The distinctive woven ribbon is fitted to a uniquely designed suspender which has the unusual feature of the dove of peace rising in flight and carrying in its beak a palm branch, which is the symbol of victory and peace above the dove. This medal is supplied on a concealed single pin, ready to wear.
