Other French colonies, such as Afrique Equitoriale Francaise, had the identical medal except for the name of the colony.
There should also be noted an interesting improvised medal for Indochina Railways. This is a silver medal with the standard Roty design of La Republique with the reverse having engraved inside a wreath of oak and laurel “MINISTÉRE - M. BRACK” and above “INDO CHINE’ and below “CHEMINS DE FER”. The ribbon is white with edges of red, white, and blue 5mm each.
