Sports medal for athletics awarded to Lieutenant A Fry, 4th Australian Pioneer Battalion, 1918
Sporting activities kept prisoners of war physically fit, staved off boredom and reminded men of their loyalty and duty to the Army. This medal was awarded to Lieutenant when he was incarcerated at Freiburg-im-Breisgau prisoner-of-war camp in Germany.
