Medal for Fighting in Defence of People’s Rule

Flag_of_PolandThis Polish medal was instituted in 1944 and was used to recognise those pro-communist forces who helped secure Poland and push it into the Soviet sphere during the period of anarchy after the Germans left. The enemy in this case was primarily the London Government-in-exile and the Home Army.
