Saint Helena Medal - It was created by Napoleon III. It is estimated that only 405 000 soldiers of the Grande Armee received this medal. This is an estimation because of the destruction of the archives of the order in a fire. All these beneficiaries had to prove they belonged to the Grande Armee in the period between 1792 and 1815.
