Description: 

Mons, Belgium, was the site of the first engagement of the British and German forces in World War I. One of Britain's military honors during the war was the Mons Star, an award for combat service that was given to troops who served in France or Belgium between August and November 1914. In "All the Dead Pilots," Spoomer has a Mons Star but not the full wings of a pilot.
