Thanks for that link, - I can't seem to find an electronic copy of Lefebure's book on the net, but your explanation adds up to what I thought.... a token of appreciation.
Here is a quote from the book - The little corner never conquered - The Story of the American Red Cross War Work for Belgium - by John van Schaick, Jr. pg 222
The universal desire to give personal service throughout the war, as well as money, showed itself in a group of young ladies of Belgium, led by the Countess Jacqueline de Liederkerke, calling themselves Les Petites Roses de la Reine, who did a work of house to house visitation in the poorer quarters of the cities under supervision of the National Committee, giving clothing and supplementing the diet for the sick and badly nourished. Their budget grew from 5,000 francs per year in 1914 to 60,000 in 1918. Their accounts and records were admirably kept. We gave them 5,000 francs to go on through the difficult winter days after the armistice. There were many such con secrated groups, the largest and best known being Les Petites Aheilles, or "Little Bees."
So, having that Charles Lefebure books tells me you must have of heck of a reference library.
In so far as "Gifts for Belgian soldiers" that organization is mentioned quite often in the book, but I could not find (via search a pdf) any reference to the remaining words on the medallion you mentioned. If you want, the book is here in the public domain. right side of page is the pdf.http://archive.org/details/littlecornerneve00vans
