Medal for distinction before the enemy IR97 - information request


Active member
Any information regarding this medal appreciated, looks to be a small cased table medal, however for distinction before the enemy?

Is this medal type specific to Infantry Regiment 97 only?

It is silber (silver) 800 marked on rim and came together with its fitted case.

Thanks in advance.IMG_7545.jpegIMG_7544.jpegIMG_7548.jpegIMG_7553.jpegIMG_7552.jpegIMG_7551.jpegIMG_7546.jpeg
Reverse translates to: "for distinction before the enemy".

I suspect a bravery award,

Oops! I should've paid more attention to your title - you obviously already knew that. Should have finished my morning coffee first before commenting!

Very nice medal!
