Interesting medal... Historically significant, but really cheaply made. What a shame.

Thank you for sharing it with us.

Hi Bob,

Nice medal. Thanks for sharing. As a ribbon collector, I'm interested in knowing the width of the ribbon suspending the medal.

Thanks

Thank you for taking an intrest in the Iraqi Navy Medal. I took a picture of the medal to show the whole medal and ribbon. The ribbon is 2.5 centimeters wide with an equal red, white and black color and 15-1/4 inches long from the top of the medal to the top of the ribbon loop. I wasn't sure whether to call the ribbon 15-1/4 in long or 30-1/2 in. long maybe you can help me out on that question. The ends of the ribbon are sewn down with two rows of red stitching.

No, I don't have any documentation for this award. It is the information that was supplied to me by my contact in Iraq who has collected Iraqi Militaria for many years. Informaton on any medals, orders, etc. is very hard to obtain. Even newer made medals information is on a "need to know" basis and during Saddam's rule, it wasn't a good idea to be asking too many questions. I'll see if I can get any more information on this medal.

Thanks for your comments as many of us are still learning as we collect Iraqi Militaria.
