Nice ribbon bar!

Phaleristically and politically, Yemen is a bit of a patchwork mess and keeping track of who issued what when will drive you to banger.gif

No good sources, but basic online references:

The first one Dave shows is a puzzle. (1) Maybe the "1000" is the 1000 Rials it may once have sold for? (2) The medal is the same Order of War Wounded I have shown. (3) But the ribbon doesn't match; I thought I had notes on this ribbon, but need to look more.

The second is easier:

Order of the Earth'

Awarded for agriculture.

eBay presently has a series of modern Yemeni medals on offer out of Lebanon.
I was surprised to see three different versions of the 20th Anniversary medal.

This is the second series of this award - post 1990 unification - the first series is similar to the Order of Duty illustrated by Ed.

Ed,

This and the next medal are from the 1964-67 period of the YAR - instituted by or for President Sallal under the recommendation of Nasser and nmanufactured by Bichay - the full series is as follows:

Order of Sheba - one class sash, etc
Order of mareb - five classes
Order pf Bravery - medal in silver and bronze
Medal of Liberation - medal in silver only

With the retreat of Egyptian forces from Yemen the sereis became obsolete and the YAR instituted its "own" series in 1971 headed by the Order of the Republic.
