Victory Medal

This site concerns insignia of the Second War War and is not designed to discuss medals, decorations or qualification badges in detail. However, I have gotten a number of questions about decorations or badges on uniforms and therefore will include this section. I am not trying to cover medals and badges in a comprehensive manner, only to discuss many of the common or better known ones.
