Haci Altiner surely epitomises the courageous service of the Turkish soldiers during the Korean War.  Thank you for sharing his story with us.

Thanks Brett. Nice to hear from you again.

Here is a new addition to my collection. Seller says it was from 1956.

I bought a similar medal several years ago and it was later identified as a fake.  I seem to remember that it was on this forum that this happened.  Perhaps someone else remembers the thread, but, if not, I will try to find it later today.

Hello Brett, 

Maybe. There is no medal especially for Korea.

Somebody selling the same item now is saying: 

'Chinese Military Oppose America Memorial Medal'

and there is another medal (below) on sale as:'Chinese PLA Korea War Medal' the sam medal is also called: "Medal for Anti America and Support of Korea 1951" in another website. 

 

I have to find somebody to read them.

Regards

Hi Demir

I found the thread about my medal (see link above).  I wonder if anyone can add to the controversy?
