My opinion is as follows, however I stand open to correction:-

The sword is very similar to that found on Italian Royal and Fascist Medals.

The one shown here is from the Campaign in Ethiopia pre-WW2 period.

Fascist style swords as pins / insignia can be found with no laurel leaves entwined.

I surmise the sword is an add on, as it makes no sense seeing the cross is for

a peacetime award.
