Gallipoli Star

Collection of German WW1 Gallipoli Star.
World War 1 Turkish Medal known as the Gallipoli Star. It is also known as the Turkish Iron Half Moon. Created in 1915 as an award of merit specific to the current war (World War I), this medal was not a campaign medal, but a medal for military merit.
The War Medal was the “entry level” gallantry award of the Turkish military in World War I, ranking below the silver Liyakat Medal. This medal is often referred to by nicknames, such as the “Gallipoli Star” in English, or the “Eiserner Halbmond” (Iron Crescent) in German.
