Belgium. Order of the Belgian Red Cross, 2nd type, silvered metal and enamels.

The Belgian Red Cross was effectively founded on 4 February 1864 with the establishment in Brussels of a committee to aid the military wounded by Dr A. Uytterhoeven and is thus the oldest of the national Red Cross Societies. This version of the cross was awarded from the 1880s up to the Second World War.
