1871. Large single leaf engraved diploma, 327 x 428mm, text within attractive border with the insignia of the Red Cross; with neat manuscript annotations and signatures; with the stamp of the ‘Société de Secours Aux Blessés Militaires, Le Mans’; lightly creased with evidence of previous horizontal and vertical folds, and some faint marginal soiling; a fine example. An appealing ephemeral item, the present diploma has been presented by the Red Cross to ‘M. Cormery, médecin au Mans’, ‘en souvenir de son dévouement dans les ambulances du Mans’. The document is dated December 15th 1871 and has been signed by the President Le comte de Flavigny, Le comte Sérurier (the vice-president) and the Secretary-General Le comte de Beaufort.
