Médaille de la Déportation et de l’Internement Politique

On 9 September 1948, those deported or interned for political reasons were also recognized by the institution of an award.

This circular medal has a slight different design but is very similar to 'The Medal for those Deported and Interned for Resistance Activities'. Also the red edge stripes on the ribbon were changed to yellow stripes, but otherwise the ribbons are identical.

As by the mentioned award, bars with eiher 'DEPORTE' or 'INTERNE' can be found on the ribbon and similary a bar "1914-1918" denotes a retroactive World War 1 award.
