Merry Christmas, all.
Attached is a picture of a medal ( it is on a charm bracelet we gave to our daughter) but I don't know what country it is from or what it was awarded for.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. The bracelet was originally my Mother's, but she died years ago. It dates from the first World War.

Might it be one of those medallions that were given to wives /widows of decorated men during the war. Aus gave similar medallions in both wars I think.
