This is the miniature version, about 2 inches including ribbon. The Belgian version is similar to the French, with crossed swords over a Maltese cross, but the cross has orbs on the corners and is surmounted by a Belgian crown. The center is a lion rampant, while the reverse has an "A" for King Albert at the center. The five green stripes on red represents a WWI version, and the bronze palm means the recipient was mentioned in dispatches at the army level.
