Default One for the French medal collectors?

Hi

Am wondering of someone can help with details of the recipient of this award. Yes, I know what both of them are but I would love to know more about the man. I suspect that he is possibly an American as the name turns up a lot on Ancestry.

Collectionneurs de la France! Aidez-moi, s.v.p.!

"Amb" - "Ambassadeur"?

Hi Leigh

Many thanks and you could be right but I think that it is: "A Mr." or "A Monsieur".

The spelling of "Henry" is not, as far as I am aware, the normal French spelling of "Henri" but one of our nice French members might like to give an opinion.

Allez les gars! Nous vous attendons! On compte sur vous...

I tend to agree with Leigh , 'Monsieur' is usually just abbreviated to 'M' plus the medal (without crossed swords) is "intended to reward honorable service by French diplomats and civil servants stationed outside of France".

Hello Dumdum,

You are correct. Here it is written “A Mr” which translates as “To mister” ....

First name is “Henry” rarest than Henri, but I had a f.f. sailor friend who’s first name was the same with ending Y.

Family name is “Santin”.

Cheers,

JD
