French War Emergency Fund

I have recently obtain a medal/token, which appears connected to WWI.

It's about the size of a 2p piece and made of brass/alloy material.

On the front is the image of a 'French cockerel'. Round the rim are the words 'French War Emergency Fund'.

The reverse side is plain but around the rim can just make out the word 'Fattorini'.

Have found that Fattorini are a company that still make today, medals/tokens/jewellers etc. They have been on the go since 1827. So guess they were the ones who made it.

Has anyone every come across the 'French War Emergency Fund'? If so can you supply details re what it was etc.

Thanks for reading,

Cheers,

CB
