On March 28th, 1941, on the same day the Vichy War Cross was instituted, Marshall Pétain authorised a new version of the Croix des Combattants (Combattant's Cross) 1930, the Croix des Combattants 1939-1940 (Vichy).
The only differences are the date on the reverse of the award, 1939-1940, and the colours of the ribbon which were changed into pale blue with black stripes.
