I am busy with a side project on award equivalences, and would appreciate some help from the gents in the know. The idea is to have a list of awards based on the actions needed to earn them, split by nation. As example: if an act of bravery in the Wehrmacht got you an Iron Cross 2nd class, what would the equivalent US or UK award be (I have the Bronze Star with Valour Device, and Military Medal in this case)?

So, regarding German medics: what would be their equivalent (roughly) of the US Combat Medical Badge (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Combat_Medical_Badge)?

In fact, what awards would an experienced medic realistically expect to achieve during his service? I am drawing a blank on my usual sources...

I have settled on the War Merit Cross w/ Swords for now, as it was also awarded for bravery - like the Iron Cross 2nd class, but lesser. Still drawing a blank on the Brit/Commonwealth medic award though, apart from a Red Cross nursing award that was only awarded to women, and men only from 1971 onward...
