A 1916 Spanish Morocco Campaign Medal

A 1916 Spanish Morocco Campaign Medal - Bronze gilt on metal, 29.7 mm x 53.5 mm, contact marks exposing the metal base, surface oxidation, fine.  Footnote: The medal was created on June 29, 1915 and awarded for meritorious service in Morocco from that date. Melilla on the North African coast had been Spanish since 1497 and Ceuta since 1668 but it was not until the early Twentieth Century that the Spanish began to expand into the interior, meeting stiff opposition from the Berbers, which continued until the major Franco-Spanish expedition of 1925-1927 finally crushed resistance.
